Flat Panel Signs
Flat panel fascia signs are a common and affordable solution. Flat panels are frequently installed on shop fascias, where there is an existing fascia to secure the signboard to, they can also be installed on industrial units.
Our flat panel signs are produced using a backing board, there are several substrates available, such as foam PVC (sometimes referred to as Foamex), or aluminium composite (frequently referred to as DiBond), aluminium and acrylic can also be used but to a lesser extent.
We can either apply computer cut vinyl to these materials to create your sign, or where you design demands a more complex design, we can supply fully printed panels providing almost endless options during the design.
Is a flat panel sign suitable for me?
Flat panel signs are a common sign, and best suited to locations where there is a solid fascia or structure to fix the panels to. Whilst flat panel signs are more affordable than other sign types, it is important to consider the materials used on your sign.
Foam PVC is affected by temperature, expanding and contracting as the temperature varies through the seasons, and becomes brittle when cold. Aluminium composite is less susceptible to temperate, and is available in matt and gloss finishes.
That’s not to say that Foam PVC doesn’t have it’s applications, and our team will be more than happy to discuss this with you.
How much are flat panel signs?
We get many calls asking “how much for my shop sign?” we wish it was that quick and simple, there are many factors that effect the price of you sign.
The obvious consideration is the size of the sign, along with what materials are used to produce the sign, does it require illumination and the complexity of the design. There are also considerations regarding the installation of the sign, such as is access equipment required?
Whilst our flat panel signs are the more affordable signs we supply, we insist on using quality materials, and not all are created equally.
Aluminium composite is available in many grades, with varying thicknesses of aluminium skins, from low cost hoarding panels, designed for short term applications such as screening construction sites, to thicker skinned boards designed to be machined and folded.
The same can be said about the self adhesive vinyl. Vinyl is available at many different levels, from short term (1 year) ‘promotional’ grades through to high quality 10yr cast vinyl. Our standard vinyl is 5year, and all our printed graphics are laminated to protect your sign from weathering and fading.
