Flat Panel Hanging Swing Sign

The Flat Panel Swing Sign Board

The Flat Panel Hanging Sign is usually produced from a 3mm or 5mm thick flat sheet of aluminium which is designed to be lightweight and rigid. With all components produced in metal, this ensures the longevity of the signboard as well as it being suitable for external use throughout the seasons.

The sign can be supplied with swing fixings which allows the board to move freely in the wind or stationary fixed brackets can be produced to ensure the board remains rigid to the bracket.

Hanging signs are a really good way of displaying your company name or the services you offer clearly in a way which is visible to pedestrians as they walk along the high street. A hanging sign is usually positioned at a 90 degree angle to the building making it easy to spot.

All signboards are tailor made to order and so the dimensions and shape of the sign can be manufactured to suit your design requirements. The majority of hanging signs are double-sided, however single-sided signboards can be manufactured if needed.

The sign is painted to your desired RAL or Pantone colour before having the logo graphics applied. The logo or text is usually produced in a pre-coloured vinyl decal which is applied flush to both sides of the sign, however other options such as gold leaf, full colour printed vinyl graphics and also slightly raised acrylic lettering is available upon request.

Compatible with a range of wall brackets

The Flat Panel hanging Sign is compatible with and can be mounted to 5 of our wall brackets which range in design from simple pole brackets to ornate and decorative wall brackets.

Choosing a particular wall bracket will usually depend on the architectural design of the building to which you're mounting the sign to, however the signboard design and logo can often play a factor as well.

Manufactured in mild steel, the shop sign wall brackets are fabricated to create the desired style and size needed to suit the intended signboard. The size of the wall bracket will be proportionate to the size of the signboard you're using. If you'd like to connect the sign to your existing wall bracket then we may be able to produce the attachments needed.

All our wall brackets are specifically designed to be strong, durable and weather-resistant for use in varied climates. The mild steel is shot blasted before being zinc primed and powder-coated in your choice of architectural-grade polyester paint colour and finish. The brackets are typically painted in either a black or white paint colour, however if an alternative colour is required then we’re able to colour-match using the RAL Paint colour guide.

Painted in a range of RAL and Pantone Colours

Available in a whole range of colours and finishes, such as gloss or matte, the hanging sign boards can be powder-coated in a specific RAL colour or wet-sprayed to your desired Pantone colour reference.

Powder-coated paint colours are typically available in a range of RAL paint colours which is a widely used colour range available across most industries where commercial grade paint is used. All RAL coloured paint is supplied by reputable paint manufactures to ensure the paint is as close a match to the colour as possible.

If you are unsure of the RAL colour reference, or if there isn’t a close-enough colour match using the RAL colour guide then we are able spray paint the sign boards using a Pantone colour reference.  

When choosing your desired colour, it's advised to choose your colour reference from a physical colour chart or swatch book so you can get a true indication on how the colour appears. When you view colour references online, they can differ slightly depending on your screen resolution and brightness.

All signboards are painted in an architectural grade powder-coated or automotive acrylic twin pack paint finish to ensure they stand the test of time.

External L.E.D. Lighting System

An easy way to transform your hanging sign into an illuminated sign is by using our external pictorial lighting system. The lighting units consists of two external trough lights which are positioned above the sign board and which projects light down onto the sign to make it clearly visible at night.

Typically produced in either black or white to match the colour of the wall bracket, the aluminium casing can also be painted to an alternative colour of choice if required.

Enhancing Visibility

The sleek and stylish light design houses all the LED light modules and power supply within its casing. Using the industry standard 6000k cool white LED lighting modules, the external lighting system ensures that both sides of the hanging sign are well illuminated.

Designed and manufactured to order, the external Pictorial Lighting System is tailor made to the width of the signboard and is suitable for both landscape and portrait style signs.

The light bracket clamps onto the hanging sign wall bracket to ensure the lighting unit is rigid and secured in a fixed position above the sign.

The built-in power supply unit ensures that the lighting unit is compact and discreet enough to reduce the amount of components needed to power the sign which leaves just a twin cable needing to be connected the mains.

Available in a range of colours, the exterior lighting case and brackets can be supplied in either black or white to match the wall bracket, or they can be painted to your required Pantone or RAL colour reference.


Logo & lettering produced in vinyl - applied to both sides

The final stages of producing the hanging sign is applying the logo or lettering to the face of the sign. Typically, the same design is applied to both sides however a different design can be used on each side if preferred.

The positioning and size of the logo lettering is usually determined during the initial design stages when the sign was designed on a computer screen and so the final stages of production is simply a case of applying the graphics to the sign board.

Adding The Finishing Touches

For most hanging signs, vinyl is the most traditionally used material as it's relatively cost effective, easy to work with and it's flexible enough to suit most logo designs.

Vinyl is great for creating sharp lines for fonts and accurate shapes for logos. Available in a magnificent range of colours from pale shades to vibrant bold colours, this material and method of production is used across the signage industry as it's so versatile.

Additionally, if the design you'd like to display on your hanging sign comprises of a complex digital image which can only be achieved by digitally printing the design then we're able to print your design onto a vinyl transfer which is UV lamented and applied to the sign board.

Alternative methods for producing the logo design are available such as 24ct gold leafing used to produce the logo, or even individual acrylic letters to create raised letters.
