Tarpaulins /Kakémono

Flexible, easily interchangeable, average-cost medium. These tarpaulins can be attached directly to a wall or to an aluminium or steel frame. They are usually attached by means of Colson or rubber bands (Sandow).

Panels

3mm-thick ALUCOBOND Panels. Semi flexible/semi rigid material used in 60% of cases for making signs, banners, decorations, and so on. These panels can be sheared, milled, lettered,…

They can also be painted according to the RAL or any other paint range.

The panels can be illuminated by spotlights.

These panels can be used to DECORATE a frontage. We also employ TRESPA for this purpose.

Relief Texts

These are texts that are usually milled on the basis of a 3mm-thick ALUCOBOND, DIBOND, or REYNOBOND panel. These texts, just like panels of the same name, can be painted according to the RAL range.

These milled texts comprise a system of studs at the back which “protrudes” them from their support and gives them the desired relief.

Text Boxes

These are the most up-market signs. They consist of heated and folded Perspex or aluminium.

These text boxes can have indirect lighting (backlit) or direct lighting.

In the event of indirect lighting, the light is directed towards the wall or the panel… the text being laid out at about 6 to 8 cm from the support.

In the event of direct lighting, the light is diffused outwards rather than towards the wall.

The lighting mode can be either neon or LED.

Neon

Neon consists of a glass tube of variable diameter (between 10 and 20mm), to which an electrode is attached at each end. The neon tube is filled with neon gas and is ‘drawn' in a vacuum.

When this tube is powered, with a high voltage of several thousand volts at each end, it lights up.

These neon tubes can be worked with a blowtorch. It is therefore still a question of work that constitutes craftsmanship. Nevertheless, the resulting cachet is important, as is its luminosity.

Totem

When required, a totem pole is used. This visual means of communication is placed by the side of a road and makes it possible to indicate where the sought-for buildings are located.

Often impressive (between 2.5 and 5 metres in height - sometimes much more), it consists of an aluminium or steel frame, which is then covered with ALUCOBOND or ALUMINIUM panels.

The decoration and the lettering give the totem pole its final touches.

Where totem poles are concerned, cranes and hoists are often essential for their placement.

On the other hand, civil engineering work can also be necessary (concrete and flagstone foundation).
