Our Polypropylene material is highly recommended for outdoor use. They are UV stabled and resist fading and cracking outdoors for three to five years. Our polypropylene is non-toxic and is Food Contact approved, conforming to AS 2070 (Plastic Materials For Food Contact and Use). Enduring temperatures of -40Â°C to 160Â°C, this polypropylene is fully recyclable and is an environmentally responsible alternative to PVC. Our poly signs are manufactured from at least 70% recycled material, which uses 97% less energy to make - resulting in lower carbon emissions. All signs are 1.4mm thick with rounded corners and four corner mounting holes.Self-Adhesive Polypropylene
Self Adhesive Vinyl
These signs are our standard Polypropylene with an adhesive backing. An industrial grade pressure sensitive adhesive backing has been applied to allow easy installation of signs by adhering to most flat, clean and dry surfaces in interior and protected exterior situations. It has a good temperature rating of up to 100ÂºC with excellent initial tack and long-term adhesion properties.
AveryÂ® Protective Laminating Film (UltraTuff)
This durable vinyl features a fully self-adhesive backing so you can adhere it to virtually any clean, dry surface. Our vinyl is manufactured to perform under a range of varying temperatures (-40Â°C to 80Â°C) and humidity. Well suited to curved or rough surfaces, just peel off the release paper and quickly apply. An expected indoor lifetime of five to eight years, our self-adhesive vinyl offers a long-term solution that is also highly resistant to fading, shrinking and chemicals.
Colorbond Steel (Metal)
For applications where signs will be exposed to abrasive chemicals or extensive UV, we highly recommend our AveryÂ® laminating film. The protective film is manufactured from high-grade polyester, with great abrasion resistance and good resistance to UV radiation and weathering exposure. It has excellent resistance to chemicals and solvents and strong adhesion properties. It is designed for use in harsh environments to protect the sign message, ensuring your sign lasts 5-7 years. The film has a service temperature of -50Â°C to 150Â°C, and a 5 year outdoor life or 7 year indoor life. It is ideal for use as an anti-graffiti protective overlaminate, although it is recommended to ensure the paint/ink is removed within 24 hours.
Retro-Reflective Aluminium & Steel
Our metal substrate is constructed from Bluescope Colorbondâ¢ Steel. Guaranteed to withstand temperatures of -40ÂºC to 80ÂºC and have an outdoor lifetime of five to eight years. This material complies with two Steel manufacturing standards AS/NZS 1365 and AS 1397. The 0.6mm thick material holds up well in windy conditions and is well suited to the outdoors. All metal signs come with rounded corners and four corner mounting holes.
Retro-reflective options are available in Colorbond Steel or Capral Aluminium. Capral Aluminium is manufactured to comply to AS/NZS 1734 and is ideal for use where resistance to corrosion and strength are a necessity. Our Colorbond Steel signs are manufactured in accordance with AS/NZS 1365 and AS 1397 and are one of our more robust sign materials, perfect for outdoor use. We use 3M Scotchliteâ¢ Retro-Reflective material which complies to AS/ NZS 1906.1, available in Class 1 and Class 2 option. Class 1 is the brightest, most durable retro-reflective material available.Corflute
Manufactured from 3mm corrugated plastic, a lightweight, low cost and durable material. They are more rigid than solid polypropylene but flexible enough to mount on slightly curved surfaces. Ideal for short-term outdoors, especially for temporary applications, such as construction and building sites.BradyGloâ¢ Luminous
Brady offers an innovative solution for emergency and evacuation signage in the workplace. Our BradyGloâ¢ luminous material B-324, is available in a polypropylene or self-adhesive polyester. BradyGloâ¢ is non-toxic and non-radioactive material. It takes only five minutes of ambient fluorescent light to charge and will glow consistentl for 10+ hours.

Safety Signs should be large enough to view without straining the eyes when communicating safety messages to employees and/or visitors. Therefore, choosing the size of a sign is more than fitting it to the space you have available. In order to comply with AS 1319, you must consider the environment, lighting and viewing distance â these factors will determine the size of sign required to suit your application. The recommended minimum sizes as per AS 1319 are as follow:
- For a pictogram and worded sign in a factory or work environment, where lighting is good and the sign will be mounted in a reasonably prominent position:
- Pictogram size is to be at least 15mm per metre of viewing distance.
- Text size:
- Upper case: 5mm per metre of viewing distance
- Lower case: 4mm per meter of viewing distance

Without Safety Signs, many employees would lack the necessary direction in times of crisis and employers may find themselves in significant legal difficulties if any accidents were to arise as a result.
