System Overview

Sign Fixings are a key part of any signage system both in terms of structure and appearance. Ashby stocks a huge range of very high quality fixings - from posts clips in all standard (and many non-standard) sizes (for both round and square posts) through to stand-off locators, colour coded fixings and much more. Extrusions form the second part of the range and includes fixing channel, angle, dovetail channel and interlocking extrusions. Sign fixings can be bought either as part of a complete system or as stand-alone items for fabrication by the Sign Maker or End User.

Ashby Sign Fixings Sign Locators

Sign Locators are fixings designed for use where the substrate must be elevated slightly from the mounting surface. Constructed from Brass and finished in either chrome or satin these fixings are available in small, medium and large variations and complement the Ashby Glass and Panel ranges.

Key Information
- Stand off Locators (Chrome or Satin finish, Large, medium small), see PDF for detailed spec
