    Hi All,

    I’ve got a customer asking for some signage to be installed on/in the bays above the thick grey divide above the door. So in the five bays in all. He’s somewhat cost driven and is saying “just glue them to the frame” which seems crude to me, but equally I’m not totally sure even If I got snap frames how the best way to attach them would be, without drilling holes in walls and potentially annoying the landlord (customer is checking what he’s allowed to do for me).

    So ahead of finding out that, just wondering what your thoughts are.

    Many thanks in advance.

      Thanks Kev, what brand would you recommend? Whilst it wouldn’t fall under my PL insurance, if we can make sure it doesn’t fall off and kill someone that would be grand.

    3M tape.

    contact them directly. They do all sorts of strengths these days. It doesn’t look like the signs will be particularly heavy. Composite?

    Why don’t you just apply self adhesive vinyl signs?

    I agree with Phill also. Vinyl all the way! GrinningThumbsup

    Thanks for the advice guys. Initially the customer really wanted rigid signage as “that’s what everyone else has” …. However, I might well try and steer him back to vinyl as a couple of units have done the same, especially as will work out a lot cheaper for him.

    Thanks again all.

    +1 for vinyl directly applied to the glass. It doesnt make sense to use anything else.
