Sign fixings or sign standoffs are used with screws when attaching signage onto walls. They allow the sign to "stand-off" from the wall, which adds to the visual appeal. Fixings come in two-parts. The screw is inserted into the through-hole of the central part of the sign standoff, and this is attached to the wall. Once all fixings are in place, the predrilled sign is placed over the fixings and the second part threaded section is screwed in to hold the signage in place. Explore our case studies to discover how adaptable standoffs are for signage projects.
