Aluminium Sheeting

All aluminium sheeting used in the manufacture of flat sheet signs is either 1.6mm or 2mm 5251 / 5052 H34 - H38 alum. Both sides are acid etched and the sign surface is PVC coated to protect the surfaces during manufacturing processes. The acid etching serves two purposes; it provides a non-glare rear surface and ensures correct surface conditions for reflective sheeting adhesion.

Aluminium Stiffeners (struts)

There are three sizes of aluminium stiffening extrusion, we refer to them as ‘Type A’, ‘Type B’ and ‘Type B’. Type B and C (heavy duty extrusion) are usually only used in the manufacture of very large ‘advance directional’ (A.D.) signs. These stiffeners are usually pop riveted to the rear of the sign.

Larger signs such as A.D. signs can also be manufactured as interlocking modular section signs. This enables the sign to be transported in smaller sections reducing transport costs and making it easier to erect on site requiring less labour.

Colorbond / Zinc Anneal

Signs in the temporary warning section are usually non-aluminium and are made from either 0.8mm colorbond or 1mm zinc anneal. They have a special folded box edge for stiffening top and bottom and to accommodate bi-pod stands on sides. Their construction is frangible and comply with MRWA standards. Colorbond provides a non-glare rear surface to the sign. The rear of colorbond & zinc anneal signs can be painted if required.

Anti-graffiti Film

3M P.O.F. 1150 can easily be laminated over the sign face of any flat sign to protect against graffiti and prolong the life of your sign. This film must be laminated prior to any stiffeners being pop riveted to sign etc. for warranty to remain valid, we must use a 3M sanctioned product for anti-graffiti purposes. To this point in time, there is no other film or spray product that can be used without voiding the 3M warranty. Our sales representatives are always available should you require more information on this product or any other product depicted in this catalogue.


Any sign not listed as supplied with stiffeners can be supplied with stiffeners on request. An additional cost will apply.


A variety of bolts, nuts, washers and security washers in M8 & M10 are available to suit all sign / post / bracket requirements. Aluminium security washers require specially turned down sockets. As a service to our clients Jason Signmakers can arrange the supply of these sockets at cost.

Jason Signmakers highly recommend the use of a nylon washer between sign face and each security washer or bolt head.
