Aluminium Composite Material Building Site Hoardings
We Only use the best Aluminium Composite Material for Hoarding Boards
Aluminium Composite Material has been regarded for some time as the best material for use in Printed Graphic Hoardings for Construction Sites. And here's why we agree!...
Our top quality aluminium composite panel is guaranteed against deterioration and is TOTALLY RECYCLABLE. It is suitable for use on projects between 6 months and 6 years.
Constructed from two thin layers of Aluminium sheet sandwiching a centre core of low density polyethylene material. The standard size of each panel or board is 2440mm x 1220mm (8ft x 4ft nominally). This lightweight board is ideal for use on hoarding graphics panels. Perfectly flat and with the slightly thicker aluminium facing than some, iIt is well known in the graphics industry and is sometimes called Dibond Aluminium Sheet, Reynobond, Alcobond, and other trade names besides. These are all reputable manufacturers but some of the cheaper Chinese Imported materials should be avoided however as they are not of a consistent quality. We only use the very best Aluminium Composite Material for Hoarding Boards.
A rigid board, it sits flat against the existing hoarding fence and withstands the sometimes harsh weather and temperature conditions that the British weather has to throw at it. It has also got minimal thermal expansion properties. This enables relatively long runs of the board with small expansion gaps inbetween. Thereby minimising the possibility of warping in hot weather due to expansion. Cellular Foam PVC products like Foamex as an example suffer terribly from thermal expansion and render them useless as nice flat graphics panels. Take a look at the Material Specification sheet here.
We used to sell an "Eco Board" which was still of excellent quality and perfect for hoardings. It simply had a slightly thinner layer of Aluminium on either side of the central core. However, we now benefit from economies of scale with the amount we buy that we can supply the Premium Hoarding Boards at the same price! Consequently, we no longer bother with "Eco Board".
Standard Colour - White
This is the material that we use for Printed Hoarding Graphics as it accepts a high quality UV print readily and gives a good finish. The finish is excellent for resisting Anti Grafitti Cleaner and give minimal ghosting of the printed image when cleaned.
In addition to our premium printed hoarding boards which start of life as a white board which we print onto, we can also supply premium pre-coloured boards.
Premium Pre-coloured Boards.
This is also a superb board and perfect for the job. With an acceptable Thermal Expansion Rate it can also be used on some of the longest hoardings around. Perfectly flat and with the slightly thicker aluminium facing, it lasts well and looks good for a decent length of time.
Pre-coloured Hoarding Boards are available in a wide range of colours. Both Matt and Gloss finishes available. We can use these boards sometimes to stick Vinyl Text and Images onto to provide the desired effect. The increased cost of these pre-coloured boards can be prohibitive on some larger installations of course. But some of the smaller and more select locations are simply crying out for some creative impact! For very large projects we can arrange pre-coloured boards to be manufactured to almost any special colour. Please ask us for more details.
Premium Finish Boards.
There are various Premium Finishes available for that "Special" situation or Location.
At the forefront of design and manufacturing skills we are always innovative when the budget allows.
For example, we have produced some prestigious BRUSHED ALUMINIUM hoardings that help sell a development in no time!
And coupled with Flat-Cut Letters & Logos mounted onto Stand-Off fixings, the results can look simply stunning!
We produce flat-cut letters, logos and other graphic elements in-house on our large flat-bed CNC router. This way we can control production and turn around better.
