Recycled Plastic Street Signs

Filcris has been making street name plates for local authorities and developers throughout the UK for over twenty years. We can match most UK council specifications for street signs from the following selection of designs:

Polycarbonate street signs: 

Post mounted: Polycarbonate sign plate with text and graphics cut from 7 - 10 year vinyl laminated to the reverse of the plate for greater vandal resistance and UV protection. The plate is mounted on a sturdy 38mm x 140mm recycled plastic black hollow backing plank and is held in place using plastic capping channel, which unlike the more commonly used painted aluminium channel is solid so cannot be scratched as easily. The capping channel is riveted onto the plank using tamper proof corrosion resistant plastic rivets. The whole backing board is then mortised into two 80mm x 80mm solid black recycled plastic posts, supplied with chamfered weathered tops and available in 1.35m and 1.5m lengths (other lengths may be available). The backing board is then fixed to the posts using capped screws. The posts are supplied predrilled with steel retaining pins for use when concreting in. 

Wall mounted: Polycarbonate sign plate with text and graphics cut from 7 - 10 year vinyl laminated to the reverse of the plate for greater vandal resistance and UV protection. The plate is mounted on a sturdy 9mm thick recycled plastic sheet using a specialist adhesive which bonds extremely well to both the plate and recycled plastic sheet. These can also be supplied with sign fix channel rails for mounting onto railings or metal posts.

All our polycarbonate signs are made using anti-glare polycarbonate and the vinyl used can come in a wide range of colours and fonts, although the vast majority of street name plates are use black Kindersley or MOT lettering on a white background. Simple logos such as No Through Road symbols can be cut into the vinyl which provides for greater longevity, while more complex logos need to printed on 5 – 7 vinyl.

Engraved street signs:

Originally developed as an alternative to the more traditional die pressed aluminium plates, our UNIQUE range of Engraved Street Signs are made by engraving an 18mm thick plate made of coextruded white – black – white recycled plastic sheet. The plate can then be wall mounted, supplied with channels to fix to railings or supplied attached to 80mm x 80mm recycled plastic posts, using stainless steel security screws. The posts are supplied predrilled with steel retaining pins for use when concreting in. The engraved design gives the appearance of traditional die pressed signs but they are:

  • Tough, durable, maintenance free and vandal proof: Polyethylene repels adhesives, paint and marker pen so graffiti is easy to clean off. 
  • Shatterproof, scratches from keys and knives do not show up. 
  • Will never rot or need repainting. 
  • No risk of vinyl letters being peeled off. 
  • UV resistant for over 10 years. 
  • No scrap value to thieves. 
  • Fixed with stainless steel security screws. 
  • Easy to replace in unlikely event of the sign being irreparably damaged. 
  • Huge range of fonts available including Kindersley and MOT. Nearly any font can be cut (minimum size 35mm, more complex serif fonts may be more expensive to cut).

Currently only available in white with black lettering, and supplied with a white back. No through rod symbols and other logos are supplied as a polycarbonate insert bonded to the plastic.

Die pressed aluminium street signs:

Traditional die pressed aluminium plates with stove enamelled finish. Most plates are black and white or white lettering on a cream background, but other colours are available including reflective white. Unlike our polycarbonate and engraved signs, the range of fonts, text sizes and logos is limited by the availability of the dies used, which correspond to the majority of council specifications using die pressed aluminium:

  • Kindersley – 90mm main text, 50mm subsidiary text
  • MOT – 100mm main text, 50mm subsidiary text. 
  • No through road logos are available stove enamelled but other logos are only available as a digitally printed lamination. 

The die pressed plates can be supplied individually for you to mount as required or mounted in the following ways. 

  • Wall mounted – screwed onto a sturdy recycled plastic backing board with tamper proof fixings. 
  • Recycled plastic frame – plate screwed onto a 25mm x 150mm black recycled plastic backing board with tamper proof fixings, then mounted on 80mm x 80mm x 1.35m black recycled plastic posts with chamfered tops. The posts can be mounted either morticed at the ends of the backing board or attached to the back of the backing board, for a more robust frame design. 
  • Galvanised steel frame – riveted onto a hot dipped galvanised steel frame made of 40mm x 45mm angle steel section with welded joints. The legs can be either angle or box section and are available in a range of lengths from 1.22m to match the specification. Supplied with welded angle retaining bars or plates for concreting in.  
  • Painted steel frame – as above but as well as being galvanised the frame is stove enamel painted in a range of colours.
