Cast Aluminium Signs

All our signs are cast in aluminium.  A material that’s not just strong and light weight, but corrosion resistant and can be recycled over and over again.  After casting a sign, we then “fettle” it, a term used in the foundry industry.  Fettling a cast aluminium sign is the process of grinding, filling and sanding the surface, corners and edges.

Painting Sign

Just prior to painting we grit blast the entire surface of the cast aluminium sign. (this gives paint extra adhesion)  We then apply a coat of acid etch primer, this adheres to the cast metal surface.  A coat of metal primer is then applied and left to dry before the sign is given its gloss coat.  Next the decoration colour is added to the text / lettering and outside border.  Finally a coat of protective marine lacquer is applied.

Colour Choices

We offer 6 standard background colour choices included in the price: BLACK, BROWN, SLATE GREY, BLUE, DARK GREEN and MAROON.  As an optional extra you can choose from our lighter shade colours: GREEN-ISH GREY, BLUE-ISH GREY, STONE-ISH BEIGE, WHITE and MAGNOLIA Text border decoration colours available are: GOLD, SILVER, MAGNOLIA and BLACK  (The above cast aluminium barn sign has gold text and border over a black background) Pinterest
