INDUSTRY SPOTLIGHT: Sentinel retail signage from Signwaves

Signwaves have been designing and manufacturing double-sided free-standing forecourt signs for over 30 years and set the industry benchmark for design, safety and performance. No Signwaves product comes to market without rigorous testing.

In poster display format, the Sentinel® is available in four stock sizes, A1, 30” x 40”, A0 and 40” x 60”. The largest in the range, for 40” x 60” posters, stands nearly 2m tall and makes for an imposing presence in front of a store. Magnetic edged polycarbonate poster cover sheets are permanently fixed on the top edge with tamper-proof fixings, ensuring poster loss due to bad weather or vandalism is virtually eliminated. Stylish silver borders on the poster cover sheets come as standard but for a more branded forecourt sign, choose a printed poster cover sheet, custom coloured frame or printed back panel for permanent messaging when posters are not in use. You will see Signwaves Sentinel ® forecourt signs working hard for retailers such as large supermarkets, petrol station forecourts and outside car dealerships.

The Sentinel ® Banner option in two standard sizes, 30” x 40” and 40” x 60”, is worth considering if more permanent messaging is required whilst still retaining the ability to update easily. Lower cost than Sentinel Poster it displays a bungee tensioned double-sided flexible PVC printed banner instead of shorter life paper posters. Spare banners with different seasonal messages can be rolled up and stored when not in use. Museums, public buildings and tourist attractions in particular find Sentinel Banner ideally suits their needs when a pavement sign just isn’t big enough.

With recyclability of products at the forefront of our minds, the Sentinel offers a recyclable steel frame, poster cover sheets and black water fillable base.

Both the Sentinel ® and Sentinel ® Banner boast a black water fillable polyethylene base made from recycled materials. With a full base, the 40” x 60” sign weighs a humongous 150kg, offering you peace of mind that your sign will stay standing upright once out in the field!
