Your Guide to Choosing a Sign Material


All our signs are manufactured in our Yorkshire HQ, so we're proud to state that they're MADE IN BRITAIN. Here, we'll help you decide which type of material is best suited for your signs.


Self-adhesive vinyl stickers

These are suitable for INDOOR USE ONLY. We use industry recommended Metamark digital vinyl. It's a tough, flexible, high quality vinyl material with an adhesive backing.

Make sure the surface you're applying it to is smooth and clean. Self-adhesive vinyl is waterproof, however, we would not advise using a sticker outside unless you are confident that the surface is suitable. The surface needs to be non-porous. Vinyl stickers will not stick to wood, brick or stone walls, concrete or similar surfaces. If you're unsure, ask us.

We would not recommend you trying to stick a self adhesive vinyl sticker larger than 400x300mm yourself. It is not as easy as it may appear!

Plastic Signs

This is suitable for both indoor and outdoor signs. We're recently launched a  thicker grade 2mm rigid plastic to our product range, whereas our competitors quote thicknesses of between 0.9mm and 1.5mm. So with The Sign Shed you get 2mm thick PVC for the same price as the other lot's thinner, "less rigid" alternatives.

The plastic can be drilled for fixing holes or foam adhesive pads can be used on the back to stick it to a surface.


Metal Signs (Composite Aluminium)

This is designed for outdoor signage use. Aluminium composite material consists of two thin aluminium sheets bonded to a non-aluminium core. It is the industry standard material for outdoor signage. It can be drilled for fixing holes with relative ease. We use 3mm thick composite aluminium.

 

Foamed Plastic Signs (Foamex)

A particular favourite material for temporary construction site safety boards. It is strong, but lightweight. It's weatherproof and designed for outdoor signage use. The foam board is white with a matt finish. Our foamex is 4mm thick.

Your guide to safety signs and their meanings

Warning signs

Warning signs indicate a hazard or a danger to be aware of such as a chemical danger an electrical hazard or with our countryside and agriculture sign range, a sign warning of a bull in a field. These signs appear as a triangular symbol with a yellow background and a black border. As with all of our warning signs, the text is clear and concise in a black, bold Helvetica font. 

 

Mandatory signs

Our mandatory signs range complies with the Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999, and the latest UK and EU legal requirements. Mandatory signs prescribe a specific behaviour. In other words they tell you that you must do something, such as Drive Slowly, Keep gates closed, or Safety helmets must be worn. The sign must include a round shape blue circle with white pictogram. As with all of our mandatory safety signs, the text is clear and concise. Mandatory sign text is white in a bold Helvetica font with a blue background.

 

Prohibition signs

All Prohibition signs available at The Sign Shed can be used both indoors and outdoors and in a range of sizes and materials such as self adhesive vinyl stickers, on rigid plastic, or a hard wearing composite aluminium.
Prohibition signs are signs prohibiting behaviour likely to increase or cause danger. They tell you something that you must not do. Prohibition signs feature a black pictogram inside a circle with red edging and a red diagonal line running through it. Our Prohibition signs range features Access Restricted signs such as No access for unauthorised personnel, Machinery prohibition signs like Do not operate, Smoking prohibition signs like No smoking beyond this point, and general prohibition signs e.g. Do not use mobile phones. These signs are used in a vast range of areas such as schools, colleges, offices, factories, construction sites, kitchens, shops and in agriculture.

 

Safe Condition signs

Safe condition signs indicate the presence of safe exit routes or the location of safety equipment. Examples include first aid points and emergency exits. All our safe condition signs comply with the Health & Safety Regulations 1996. These signs appear as a rectangular symbol with a green background. As with all of our warning signs, the text is clear and concise in a white, bold Helvetica font. 

Size Conversion Guide

Whether you use metric or imperial measurements, you can use our handy millimetres (mm) to feet (ft) and inches (") conversion guide to choose the right size of sign.

Your guide to Sign viewing distances

Here's some useful information to help determine the sign size to choose that would suit the location the best.

Viewing distances are not an exact science and are used as a guide to determine the approximate height and width of sign needed for a member of the general public with good eyesight to be able to determine the image and text on the signage.
