Smith for signs
Through the recently established Smith manufacturing/fabrication arm of its trade-only business, William Smith offers a diverse range of sign and display solutions, which are available either as bespoke or ‘off-the-shelf’ products and include directional/information, projecting, suspended, tray and traffic formats.
Smith’s well-established and highly adaptable multi-directional Stylos fingerpost system incorporates ‘fingers’ that can point in up to eight different directions and at a varying height. A key design feature is the concealed inner fixing arrangement that makes it extremely difficult for the fingerposts to be vandalised, thus making the system the preferred choice of many local authorities. It is supplied either as a finished product, complete with graphics, or in component form for on-site assembly and graphic customisation in any stove-enamelled BS, RAL or Pantone colour specification.
Complementing the Stylos solution is a range of wooden fingerposts. Crafted in solid oak and designed to blend harmoniously with rural environments,each ‘arm’ insert and fingerpost pointer is routed out of solid oak planks, with infilled engraved lettering in any colour incorporated as required. To provide a natural finish, the fingerposts are coated with a wood stain varnish.
Smith’s modular and freestanding post & panel information display system incorporates metal slats that are easily interchangeable, thus making it an ideal display solution for locations that are subject to constant change, while its range of projecting signs can be tailored to provide a bespoke or vintage look. They incorporate a steelmounting bracket for added strength and durability, can be fully customised and supplied in both a LED-illuminated and non-illuminated format.
The company’s tray signs range can be supplied powder-coated and finished on-site via the application of vinyl or digitally-printed graphics in addition to fret-cut, push-through or stand-off lettering.
Manufactured by William Smith as early as 1930, the traffic signs now supplied by Smith comply fully with the European standard BS EN 12899 and meet the latest CE standard. For those companies yet to obtain this accreditation, Smith can manufacture and supply on a sub-contractual basis traffic signs that are fully CE-compliant.
Completing the sign and display system line is Smith’s wide range of sign faces and sign blanks, which are supplied in a number of different finishes, including mill, vinyl and reflective. Also available is a range of ‘off-the-shelf’ sign components that includes, clamps, posts, base plates and screw bands.
