Considering a Hanging or Projecting Sign? - For Business, House & Home

PROTUDING, PROJECTING, HANGING, FLAG-STYLE, COMPOSITE SIGNS - WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

Hanging & Projecting Signs are a perfect way to make sure your home or business has a presence on the roadside or the high street. Having a sleek, eye-catching sign will make your space easily visible and memorable to passers-by. We have written this informative blog to answer all your questions, and explore the vast designs you can have for your signage!

HANGING SIGNS

Hanging Signs are a brilliant way to fix your signage to a bar or pole that comes horizontally across the top of the sign. As long as the bar and fixings are mounted securely to the joining point, your sign can be made of wood, aluminium, steel, you can then have your desired text, logo or other images printed onto the sign using a high quality weatherproof vinyl, or engraved if made of wood or sheet metal. A lighting source can then add 24/7 visibility!

PROJECTING SIGNS

Projecting, protruding, composite and flag-style are all types of projecting signage. A projecting sign, as the name suggests, is fixed so that it projects outward from the side of a building or interior wall, placing it more noticeably in the field of vision of passes by. Projecting signs also have the obvious advantage of being able to carry your message on both sides. These are most commonly used on the high-street or indoor shopping centres to spot a shop form a distance. A professional sign with a distinctive design and logo can be the biggest draw for returning customers and act as a beacon of curiosity for new one. Projecting signs also offer internal lighting, acting as a mounted lightbox.

See below examples of both, and the range we can offer you for both domestic and business applications!

PROJECTING SIGNS

Ideal for the high street. Face panels can have your design, and can come with weatherproof, painted, powder-coated fixings.

HANGING SIGNS

Used for the high street and pubs traditionally. Can come in a range of sizes and styles and printed with your design. Fixings can be provided or mounted to pre-installed mounting points.

ROUND PROJECTING SIGNS

Offering something out of the norm, circular and shaped projecting signs can be cut to fit the outline of your design, and can be mounted with one or two fixings pending size and design.

ROUND HANGING SIGNS

Can be precision cut to any circular design! We offer a range of materials for lightness and durability, that can be faced with weatherproof full-colour vinyl for long lasting external display.

WOODEN HANGING SIGN POSTS

Perfect to display your property or business if you are set back from the roadside. We can engrave and cut your sign with your text and design, giving it that premium look.

PROTRUDING LIGHTBOX SIGNS

Very similar to our flex-face fascia signs, these smaller lightboxes can be branded with your design on both sides, and are perfect for night time advertisement! Supplied with the lighting and fixings for 24/7 illumination.

FLAG STYLE SIGN POSTS

Much like our wooden hanging signs, these are a brilliant solution for your property or business if you are set back from the road. You can have multiple 'fingers' for directional signposting, or a single rectangle protruding from the main post.

COMPOSITE HANGING SIGN POSTS

Have the best of both with a sturdy wooden post system, and a composite material hanging sign! OR a metal hanging system and wooden hanging sign. Perfect for domestic use and businesses set back from the road.

CONSIDERING A PROJECTING OR HANGING SIGN? - THE SOLUTION

There are a great many choices:

  • Swinging signs, revolving or fixed signs with a bracket
  • Traditional hand-painted wooden signs mounted on cast iron frameworks inspired by beautiful Victorian metal work
  • Modern illuminated tray signs.
  • Slim line aluminium signs
  • Signs made of acrylic or glass (or stained glass)
  • Printed, vinyl-cut graphics, etched, fret cut or moulded lettering
  • Square, rectangular, circular, triangular, oval, or custom cut shapes

As with designing any kind of signage, consider your surroundings. What other signs will your sign be competing with/or complementing - think not only about colours and shape, but the lighting too. Will you be relying on natural light, or artificial illumination? Keep it simple. And remember, the recommended minimum height for a projecting sign is 2300mm off the ground.
