Frequently Asked Questions

23


Why do we use aluminium?

Why do we use digital print?

Aluminium will not rust, rot or shatter like some traditional sign making materials such as plastics or wood. Coupled with high quality vinyl, digital printing and protective laminate, aluminium is the perfect choice for an attractive, cost effective and strong sign system.

90% of our signs are now digitally printed. This technology means no stuck on letters that can be easily peeled off or vandalised. Printing inks are UV resistant and weatherproof, we then add a clear gloss lamination for extra protection and longevity.

Why do we use rounded corners?

It also means we can print graphics such as colour blends on logos, intricate school emblems, scans of children’s designs and photos that are otherwise impossible with traditional signmaker’s vinyl cut on a plotter.

We round corners on all of your signs as standard, whether wall mounted or post mounted as a safety precaution to protect little fingers from sharp edges.

Window Film

Window film or window tinting when installed reduces uncomfortable heat and glare, minimizes fading by reducing UV, improves security and privacy and is virtually undetectable.

By running your air conditioning less, you can consume less energy, reduce your carbon footprint and save money on utilities. Our extensive range of films which include professional grade solar control, safety and security film, decorative and frosted film, and total block out film can be used on any glass applications such as offices, computer rooms, play rooms, dining halls, conservatories and walkways. The application of window film or window tinting on glass is undisruptive, fast to install, and maintenance free. Compared to curtains, shutters and blinds etc, window film is more efficent and more cost effective.

Increase comfort and productivity s Once installed our window film helps maintain a more comfortable and productive studying and learning environment by reducing glare and hot spots.

Reduce interior fading and protect

We are acknowledged experts in specifying films for all window applications and then installing them to the highest standards of workmanship, in all types of buildings including Homes, Offices, Conservatory windows, glass or Polycarbonate Conservatory roofs, Schools, Universities, Shops, Hospitals, Industrial buildings and Government buildings.

Ultraviolet light and solar heat coming through any window can cause fading and irreparable damage to the things you value most. Everything from your expensive artwork and furnishings, to hardwood floors and carpets are at risk. Our films help by filtering visible light, rejecting solar heat and blocking over 99% of harmful UV light - significantly reducing your potential for damage and protecting you and your pupils.

Stay GREEN and reduce utility costs

Improve Security

An increasing number of schools are interested in helping our environment and preserving precious resoures. You can make a difference everyday simply by reducing your air conditioning usage. Our window film installations help you do that by rejecting heat and keeping interior temperatures more controllable and stable.

To a thief, a broken window is an open door to the valubles locked inside. Your school equipment and other costly possessions can all be gone in a matter of minutes. We supply security films that will make the windows in your building significantly difficult to shatter, holding the broken glass firmly within the window frame after breaking.
