Architectural Signage

Bespoke Signage

Canal Architectural can design and manufacture bespoke architectural signage for businesses and stores throughout the UK. Signage can help visitors to find your location, as well as emphasising your brand. Directional signage offers guidance for people visiting your premises or informs people what departments are in each building. We are experienced in architectural signage and have produced a range of bespoke metal signage products.

  • Working Alongside Signage Companies

  • Signage Design Process

  • Signage Installation Process

We work with signage companies to advise on the recommended method of manufacture, construction, fixing and installation, based on the client’s specific requirements.

A few examples of signage that we can produce include:

  • Totem signs
  • Mild steel frameworks
  • Directory signs
  • Powder coated aluminium or stainless steel
  • Store entrance features
  • Use of glass
  • Internal illumination

We carry out structural calculations, in particular, to assess the potential wind loading on the finished item. This will often determine the principal structural framework elements of the sign, which include the base plate, bolt cage, and the size of any concrete base if appropriate.

For most architectural signage fabrication work, and in particular, that which relates to the larger retail parks, we provide full architectural drawings of the signage proposed for use in planning applications. Once approved, we complete engineering drawings prior to production.

Before delivering the completed signage to the site, we pass full information to the main contractor or client regarding any power supply requirements for the finished product.

In addition, we draw up and agree on full method statements and risk assessments with the main contractor or client to ensure the health and safety of all involved in the final installation.

“Canal are intrinsically involved in the design from the beginning of every project, and provide invaluable advice in respect of the design, specification and engineering. We are yet to be let down in terms of quality, aesthetics or programme and would not hesitate to work with them again, or to recommend them as a contractor.”
