Canal Architectural can design and manufacture bespoke signage for businesses and stores throughout the UK.
We work with signage companies to advise on the recommended method of manufacture, construction, fixing and installation, based on the client’s specific requirements.
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.
A few examples of signage that we can produce include:
Mild steel frameworks
Powder coated aluminium or stainless steel
Store entrance features
Use of glass
Signage Design Process
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 signage 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.
Signage Installation Process
Before delivering the completed signage to 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 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.
