Sign Fittings FAQ

We currently provide our customers with multiple ways of fitting or mounting their sign. The different fittings provide a completely different look to each-other and can give an old sign a new lease of life.

This page is here to show you the types of fittings we can provide and how to install the fittings correctly to ensure a clean and strong mounting for your sign.

Types of Fixings We Provide

We provide 3 different types of fixings, all 3 fixings are manufactured to a high standard to ensure your sign wont move.

The first type of fixing is the standard mirror plates, if you're a previous customer you will be familiar with these brackets, they are provided with every sign free of charge, unless you state you would like one of the other fittings.
The Mirror plates are made from brass so are suitable for external use.

The second type of fixing is the 'Secure' fixing, these are Button Fix® Type 1, durable nylon buttons are attached to the back of the sign and the mating fixes are attached to the surface you want the sign fixing to. Bring the sign towards the surface and slide until the Button-fixes click. 

The third type of fixing is the 'Hidden' fixing, they are a Keyhole Suspension Fixing, this is a strong plastic keyhole mount that will be installed flush into the back of the sign, all you have to do is mount it on some screws (Not Provided).

    This mirror plate secures a lightweight sign to the plasterboard partition wall using a hardened steel pin

      1. Using a soft pencil and a measure, turn the sign over so you can see the reverse. Leaving the one protruding hole overhanging the sign, mark a point to indicate where the mirror plates should be fixed.
      2. EITHER half way up rear of the sign verticals (or slightly higher). Make sure the measurements on left and right are both the same distance from the top edge of the frame.
      3. OR either side of the top part of the frame. (less used technique)
      4. Now place the mirror plates over the mark. Make sure the part with just one hole is not too close to the frame (ie allow space for the screw driver to work) 
      5. Place the top hole over the mark. Using the pencil mark up the place of the other hole on the frame
      6. Using two screws - and the guide marks - screw the mirror plates to the sign, do not over tighten or the timber could split.
      7. Offer the sign up to the wall and fix with appropriate screw (into timber) or using the protruding hole as a guide, take a pencil with a long point and mark out where to drill.
      8. Use a third screw (NOT SUPPLIED) through one of the remaining screw holes to screw the frame flush to the wall. A steel pin can be used on plasterboard walls if the sign is extra small and light.  You will need to use rawl plugs and longer screws if the sign is heavy
      9. Before you drill the second hole check that the frame is level using the spirit level and make any necessary adjustments to level it up.
