System Overview

Post mounted signage systems are a common sight along any road or outside any business park; from standard clip and rail systems through to higher end, post mounted tray (Plaza style) systems. A key component of any of these systems is Aluminium Posts and Ashby is pleased to stock and supply an unrivalled range of round, square and specialised profiles in a combination of Mill Finish, White and Grey. Posts are stocked in 500mm increments but all can be cut to the necessary size. All posts can be powder coated or wet coated to requirement, and configured in multiple ways to give the desired look. Need a little bit more? Have a look at our Finials and Fixings page for inspiration.

All of our Caps are supplied in Black as standard but we also stock 76mm (round) caps to match our standard AS colours - it means you get the nearest possible match to your post colours. Additionally, and if budgets don't quite stretch to finials , we can supply you with plastic Domed Caps (for round posts) to give a different finish. If you're after a more specialised post profile, our preference is to supply you with metal end caps - we'll powder coat them to match the rest of your system.

Ashby Aluminium Posts 'Stali' Brushed Aluminium Post

Stali is a Stainless Steel effect Aluminium post section that is unique to Ashby Trade Sign Supplies. Stainless steel effect is a low maintenance, lightweight Aluminium post section that has been grained and bronze anodised through a specialist process designed to give the appearance of Stainless Steel with none of the downsides.

Key Information
- Comes in lengths of 3.00m and 3.50m (stock) (optional cut to size service offered)
- Approximately one third of the cost of actual stainless steel
- Anodised to AA12 (approximately 12 years external life)

The anodised, self passivating surface means that when the surface is marked or scuffed throughout the course of its life it will not oxidise or mark in the same way that Stainless Steel does. Additionally, and in stark contrast to Stainless Steel, Stali is lightweight meaning; carriage costs are lower, it's easier to install and, ironically, won't stain! We've got to ask, why bother with Stainless Steel?

- This product looks fantastic in conjunction with our Acrylic Signage especially for post or wall mounting
