Will my Dibond sign rust
Your Dibond signs should not rust. This is true even in wet conditions. Aluminium as a metal does not rust. While the sign will not rust, like any other metal, there will be some oxidation over time but your signs should look great for 5+ years with proper care and maintenance. Adding the protective laminate coating we offer will also help prevent any rust on your sign. The bolts and washers you install your sign with need to be rust free as well, otherwise, you may see rust form around your installation hardware on your sign.
Will my Dibond sign bend?
Generally speaking there will be bend or pliability to any Dibond sign, regardless of size. Though for smaller signs there will be significantly less bend than what is seen in larger signs. Also, because our signs include a thick solid core, you will find much less bend. Albeit, for larger signs we recommend that posted signage be secured to a flat surface or to multiple posts rather than just two. Using even just a middle post is usually enough to offset any trouble caused by high winds for bigger signs attached to only two posts.
How do I install my Dibond Signs? / Where can I post my sign?
They can be affixed or mounted on a number of different surfaces. Essentially any rigid surface including brick, concrete, drywall, wood, metal, etc. can be used to mount your signs.To install your signs you’ll need to drill pilot holes into the surface material and then use screws or bolts to mount the sign. If you did not select drilled holes when you ordered your signs you’ll also need to drill holes into the sign itself. However we offer an installation service, where one of our experienced team will install the sign for you.
What is the lifespan of DiBond Signs?
With proper care and maintenance your plastic sign can last 5+ years. With outdoor placement where the sign will be constantly exposed to varying weather conditions, the lifespan may be shortened.
How do I store my Dibond signs?
If needed, your signs can be stored at room temperature in dry conditions. We recommend putting fabric or cardboard in between the signs when stacking or leaning them against each other, this will help protect against inadvertent scratching.
