advice / tips needed for FIXING PVC SIGNBOARDS
I expect this has been asked a thousand times before I joined up,
but what is the best method of fixing completed PVC Signboards to
an existing timber shop fascia???
The manufacturers of Sheet PVC recommend that Screws set in Snap-Cups
fixed through overlarge holes is the answer but, in my opinion, this looks
‘kak’ – especially if the background is anything other than white (which is
pretty unusual for the ‘Keyboard Tapper Type of Sign Firm’). The result is
a load of unsightly raised caps, which the more Proffessional Type of Sign
Firm will find unacceptable.
We have found that Zebra Screws offer the best alternative. They are self
drilling and incorporate a flange/washer with a shallow pozi head. These too have drawbacks – (1) they are plated silver, so they need to be sprayed the same colour as the background (2) they tend to scrape the background colour if there is any heat warping and (3) as a Scotsman, they are a wee bit pricy!!!
Anyone got any secrets they’d like to let us in on….
