Project: Dibond Signage
Client: JJ Byrne Craft Shop, Knock, Co. Mayo
Signwest have recently created street signage for JJ Byrnes gift shop in Knock. These are on Di-bond panels. John J. Byrne Craft & Religious Souvenirs shop is located in the village of Knock, Mayo Ireland and has been a family run business now owned by John Byrne.
The advantages of using Dibond signs are that it is a stable and rigid board, which is perfect for long-term signage. It’s relatively lightweight and the aluminium surface gives great durability in all weathers.
What is Dibond Signage?
Dibond (also known as aluminium composite board) is made up of two 0.3mm aluminium sheets sandwiched between a PVC core (usually black). The signage has a 5- to 7-year life cycle and is printed on our UV press to extend the life of the printer graphics. In some situations, printed vinyl graphics can be added to the boards to provide a metallic color to images and text.
Because dibond boards are widely used in hoarding, they must be durable and coated with a gloss anti-graffiti laminate. The anti-graffiti laminate preserves and improves the designs while also allowing them to be cleaned with powerful detergents if necessary.
- The board is stable and robust, making it ideal for long-term signage.
- Hence, it is rather light.
- The aluminium surface is extremely durable in all types of weather.
- Correx and Foamex are slightly more costly.
- When used flat, the sign has a black border.
- Suitable fasteners and screws can be used to secure it to walls and solid backdrops.
- Attaching to poles, it comes with a rear channel that employs a Tam-Torque mechanism to clamp it around the poles.
- Avoiding sharp corners becoming a danger, radius corners are employed.
- Outdoors, it’s most often utilized for store signs and long-term signage projects.
