Whilst we are committed to producing innovative signage, promotional and branding solutions for our customers. We are equally committed to minimize our impact on our local and wider environment.
Every aspect of our sign production is carefully considered;
With a guaranteed design life of 7-10 years, aluminium signs have one of the longest life spans of all sign materials.
Aluminium is the world’s most abundant metal. You are not depleting precious natural resources when you select aluminium. The majority of our aluminium is cast from its raw ore using electricity generated by hydro-electric power.
Our extruded aluminium products are made from aluminium alloy with a 20-25% recycled content. As part of our waste reduction policy, our bespoke software applies production-planning expertise to maximise the yields from each piece of aluminium. We recycle 100% of our waste aluminium.
At the end of their life span, aluminium signs can be recycled. Currently in the UK, over 70% of aluminium is recycled at the end of its lifecycle. Over 25% (11 million tonnes worldwide) of all aluminium is manufactured from recycled aluminium scrap.
In order to further minimise our consumption of aluminium we specify aluminium composite in 48% of products comprising recycled polyethelene.
Our print graphic production utilises the latest latex ink technology avoiding solvent based inks.
We use plant and machinery that is modern and efficient. We buy electricity with a high-renewables content and use only low-energy IT equipment and lighting.
We recycle 100% of our waste plastics, wood, paper and cardboard. All our waste vinyl is donated to to local schools for arts projects.
We use nationwide couriers to deliver our goods, reducing road miles through grouped deliveries and no empty return to factory trips.
We support the use of expanded polystyrene (EPS) to protect our signs in transit. EPS is extremely lightweight (and is 98% air) helping to reduce delivery costs and fuel consumption. awaiting for a copy
