Industrial Estate Signs
Modular Sign Systems

This is one example of a modular sign system that can be used on industrial estates.
Modular systems are generally made from a combination of aluminium extrusions and produce the thicker, chunkier, more solid signs often called architectural signage as opposed to the panel and post sign systems used to make road signs.
The only way that these systems can be affordable is to standardise and limit the range of sizes available to you.
However, you can create signs in many sizes using multiples of standard components, although your signage is restricted in some ways.
You cannot always have what you want unless you are prepared to pay the earth for it.
For example, you might want a sign panel that is 120mm high but you would have to settle for the nearest standard size which would be a choice of a bit smaller, 100mm or a bit bigger, 150mm. Usually an adequate compromise can be found.

There are other ways of creating signs that might suit you better, this would probably be found in a variation of the plate or panel and posts systems, an example of which is shown on your right.
Folded sheet metal panels is another solution that is both flexible and affordable yet precise.

Industrial Estate Directory Signs
Removable, Easy to Change Name Panels

Estate entrance signs often have to be combined with an estate directory.
The estate sign shown here at Mallings Industrial Estate, Lewes in Sussex offers what is probably the lowest cost option available.
The names are on individual panels that can be easily removed and replaced with a new tenants company name.
Sign panels that are removed can then be reused for a future name change.

Just a few examples of colour, shape and configuration options available for estate signs and signage

Our Approach to your Signage Problems

There are at least ten manufacturers of sign systems in the UK, they are all similar in concept and how they are assembled
but there are also many differences in appearance, quality and cost which alone can vary by 300% from the cheapest to the most expensive.
Wading through this array of possibilities and narrowing the choice down to the two or three best solutions for your sign requirements
is our first step in our approach to your work.

The next step is to produce costs along with colour visuals, drawn to scale of your signage,
we can offer our design and layout services or work from your designs and specifications.

What Should You Do Next?

Assemble as much information about your sign as possible and lob it in our direction.
we'll put it together into a coherant design and layout.

This info includes:
All wording and any fonts styles that you prefer
Colour preferances
A copy of any logos, crests or coats of arms that might be used
The biggest problem for you is knowing what size the lettering should be
to fit the space available for the wording on your signage, this particularly important
when signs have to be easy to read from a miniumum distance.

We will then prepare a scale drawing for you of your proposed signage.
Let us know if you prefer measurements in feet and inches, metric or both.

You may know exactly what you want; the colour of the lettering, the lettering font style and the exact size of the letters,
if so we will work from your specifications.

We will email or post a scale drawing of your industrial estate signs,
and estimated costs. When you see the drawing you'll be able to check the spelling as well as see if the sign looks right.

A few revisions and alternatives will probably be necessary, you'll then receive further sign visuals.
If and when we agree prices, sizes and all other details we would ask you to pay in advance for your estate signage.
Depending upon its complexity and how busy we are, delivery would then be 2 to 6 weeks, if you have a deadline we'll always try to meet it.
