Product materials and sign types
Most of our signs are available in various sizes and materials so we wanted to explain the difference in materials to help you select the best product to meet your requirements.
- Self-adhesive vinyl signs
- 1mm Rigid PVC
- 3mm Heavy Duty PVC
- Double Sided signs
- Photoluminescent signs
These are produced in Rigid PVC only. In the event of a power failure, these signs should help reduce panic, as they are highly visible in dark conditions, thus allowing for safer evacuation. They can be used over and over again by direct exposure to a light source. They do not present a health hazard and do not require any electrical power or batteries to enable them to work.
