Acrylic Sign Locators
To mount your sign to a wall there are several options available. Acrylic sign locators work by having both male and female components. The male component gets bonded to the back of the sign panel (or sign blank) and the female part gets located in a drilled out hole.
This allows the sign panel to be mounted easily and fitting templates can be supplied to ensure holes are drilled in the correct locations.
Brass & Nickel Sign Locators
Another option to mount your sign to the wall (or other surface) is to use Brass or Nickel sign locators. These work similar to acrylic sign locators in that they usually have two parts (a male and female).
There are several fixing types available: external threaded, internal threaded and fixed woodscrew. They are durable, long lasting and suitable for all weather conditions. Fitting templates can be supplied along with a Fabricut Fitting Guide.
Threaded M4 studs (or pins) are welded onto the rear of stainless steel or aluminium signage. The studs can be used for sinking into pilot holes in walls for a flush finish.
Alternatively we can supply acrylic spacers (sleeves) that will space your sign or lettering away from the wall. Supplied with fitting templates.
Barrel Fixings (Stand Off Fixings)
Particularly effective with acrylic panels, these are a visible fixing that become part of the signs finished look. Available in satin or chrome finish and in a variety of sizes to suit most sign panels.
For a stylish look, visible metal stand off can be used to mount pre-drilled acrylic or metal sign panels and sign blanks. Usually to display wall logos, maps, posters. Suitable for internal or external walls. Available in a variety of sizes in satin or chrome finishes.
Simply attach the “stand off” stud part to the wall or display unit. Then put the sign panel (or sign pocket) in place and simply secure by hand with the screw cap. screw in the thumbscrew end – simple. Fitting templates can be supplied along with a Fabricut Fitting Guide.
Very High Bonding (VHB) Tape
This is a commercial use, double-sided, ultra strong adhesive tape ideal for general sign fixings. When we say “ultra strong”, we mean it! When using VHB Tape for the first time it can be daunting; putting your trust in double-sided tape. But once you have used it, you’ll see just how strong it is.
It’s great for the hanging of simple non-removable sign panels or bonding things like flat cut letters to walls, etc.
Paper Fixing Templates
Positioning a sign can be tricky business, but with a Fabricut fitting template (or paper fixing template) it makes your job easy. Simply request one with your sign order and then when on site, position to your wall or substrate with masking tape and drill your fixing holes as indicated on the template.
Vinyl Fitting & Paint Stencils
We use high quality low tack MACmask from Mactac for our stencils, which is less likely to cause damage to paintwork than standard vinyl. These can also be cut and supplied for use as a paint mask for spray painting.
