Using Lockable Sign Fixings also means that with the sign fixed securely to the wall, there is less concern for accidents and offers added safety. At iSpi Trade we offer this product in two variations, a 13mm and 18mm diameter, with both options supplied in 20mm lengths. Internal or external signs, lockable sign fixings offer great solutions to mount and protect your product.

If you're looking for that added wow factor to your display, our LED sign standoffs are an exciting way to create something that will be noticed anywhere. When you need a solution to a dimly lit environment, night clubs, for instance, this product is a great way to naturally fit your sign to the environment whilst ensuring it's noticed. A fantastic product for wayfinding or as a way to drive marketing messages and grab audience attention.
LED lighting has come a long way in recent years and as an energy-saving solution and low maintenance product, it's one that many signage installers throughout the UK are turning to. They need to be connected to the electrical supply, which also means they can be used as part of the emergency lighting system.
Ultra-High Bond, Double-Sided Permanent Tape
Let's just say it's got the strength to what you need it to. Ultra-High Bond double-sided permanent tape sign fixing solution is used both internally and externally and is often found within road and wayfinding signage due to its robust way of dealing with harsh weather conditions. Supplied in either 10mm or 20mm widths and sold in 33-metre rolls, this can be used when visible fixings may not be an option. A clean, sharp finish to your display can be achieved with the product, all hidden but keeping your sign secure and safe.
At times, and sometimes due to material or where a sign is being applied to, our customers prefer to use standard screws to apply the signage. In this case, our fixing screw covers provide an excellent way to then hide any unsightly screw heads, which may rust and decay. These products are available in various colours and finishes, including gold, chrome, satin and chrome and black aluminium. A wide range of diameter head sizes is also available.
