Ashby Aluminium Sign Trays Suspended

Aluminium Suspended Sign Trays are available in two variations according to mounting requirement (rigid or hanging). Both variations utilise two back to back trays (fixed over internally mounted fillet plates and riveted together) to give a seamless finish.

Key Information
- Manufactured from 12swg aluminium
- Powder or wet coating options available for fabricated aluminum signage
- Standard fixings will provide you with bolted through M8 eyelets and nuts (no further fixings)
- Units will most commonly be supplied assembled unless illuminated as standard
- Powder coated units carry a lead time of up to five days (sooner if required)

The difference comes with the fixings: the rigid version uses two post sections fixed through the top return (pictured) and the hanging uses eye bolts fixed in place before riveting together. These are highly cost effective systems that offer much more than standard plate suspended signage (as cost effective and attractive as they are).
