London Borough of Ealing
Bespoke interpretation, information and entrance signs
Ealing Council needed to upgrade all external signage at Greenford Park and Northolt Park.
Shelley Signs was contracted to design, manufacture and install a new range of signage. This included park entrance signs, interpretive panels and directional fingerposts.
Shelley Signs recommended glass reinforced plastic (GRP) as the most appropriate material for the two locations.
Interpretation boards and park signs were supplied with steel frames and oak posts. The frames were sprayed to an agreed colour and the oak sourced from FSC accredited suppliers.
Entrance signs were supplied with aluminium display cases which were hinged, lockable and glazed with shatterproof polycarbonate. They also had pinboard backers.
Printed information boards were supported by directional fingerposts. Produced in oak, the routed fingers were morticed into the posts. The text was painted to an agreed colour. The number of directional arms varied between one and four.
GRP is a robust material which offers excellent colour fastness, ease of cleaning and good impact resistance. Graffiti can be very easily removed and panels cleaned to remove environmental grime. These benefits make it ideal for use in public areas.
This varied project illustrates the versatility offered by Shelley Signs.
