Our signs

Our standard BTS come as a 1.2mm thick flexible continuous surface (with no add-ons that can be removed). Our vandal resistant and hygienically clean membrane can be adhered to all surfaces; flat or curved, mounted onto a backing of personal preference, or added to existing signs.

Readily available stock is always kept in white on blue and in black on silver.

Colours and finishes can be put through to match to your specific colour requirements.

Although the braille locator is not a requirement on all signs it is a preferred option.

The locator and braille message are the same colour as the background.

Signs for external use have a UV stabilised and graffiti proof coating. Please add 'ex' to code when ordering.
