Surrey Fire and Rescue Services

Firefighters respond to 999 calls including fires, road traffic collisions, water rescues, flooding and situations that may involve hazardous materials. They are also a valuable resource when training and educating people and businesses about how to prevent emergencies from happening in the first place and about what to do if they do happen.

As an integral service within the community, Surrey Fire & Rescue often outreach to visiting vulnerable people for check-ins, school visits and open days, and local events, as well as conducting business safety advice sessions and training days.

To keep their operations and personnel running as smoothly and efficiently as possible, the resources they have access to need to be smart, easy to use and navigate, as well as highly versatile to serve multiple purposes for their team. Now introducing, the self-adhesive magnetic solution...

Highly Functional Magnetic Maps

The team at Surrey County Council and the Fire & Rescue Services Headquarters reached out with a brief that mirrored a previous installation of maps detailing the Surrey area. For this project, they required 2 magnetic maps, one of East Sussex and the other of West Sussex that could accept magnet tallies to show resources in different areas.

Custom Printed Frameless Whiteboards are a great space-saving tool requiring minimal mounting tools. Not only do they get rid of bulky aluminium or wooden frames, but they also allow your whiteboard to integrate with a room and blend into it surroundings. As the team didn't want to drill into the walls and needed a flush finish, they opted for a magnetic sheet material which has a high-tack adhesive backing meaning no drills and no fixings! The great thing about frameless boards is they can be custom created to any size or shape. Board panels can be seamlessly placed right next to each other to extend your whiteboard wall to any width or height.

The team were able to provide high-quality imagery for their two prints so with those and the desired measurements we were able to proceed! If you don't have your own high-resolution imagery or map layout, we recommend browsing high-quality image banks such as Shutterstock to find your perfect printable. You can then download these and send them to us, or let us have a brief and we can source the image for you, including the cost of any downloads in your product quotation.

Custom Printed Magnetic Wall Maps

Our large-scale printed frameless whiteboard walls can be created from several different materials. The two most popular options are a rigid magnetic sheet material like steel which has been faced to cover the raw metal with your print and then applied with a whiteboard overlaminate for those dry-wipe properties. Your boards can then be fixed to the wall with either stand-off locator screws, or flush-to-the-wall fixings and screw caps.

The other option, used here, is a rollable magnetic sheet that has a strong high-tack adhesive on the rear. This can be cut to any shape and comes in a variety of heights and almost any length as it comes on a roll! This can be applied to most surfaces including walls, doors, tables and more, to make any surface magnetised. We then print your design on the same adhesive vinyl and a dry-wipe overlaminate for a fully customised, no-fixing magnetic wall display.
