Optically Clear – a step further with printable film technology 

Optically Clear is a fantastic new material that we at Reade are really enjoying working with. From print to application through to the longevity of the products performance, Optically Clear is at the front of our manifestation arsenal.   

“Optically Clear has enabled multi layered designs to be applied to glass in a single piece, whereas traditionally you would have several layers of vinyl.

Lower grade vinyls are prone to milkiness and can have a rippled finish once applied. Our optically clear vinyl is true to its name and completely transparent, plus being printable means even the tiniest details can be captured.”

UV and eco-solvent printable film for glass decoration 

Ideal for corporate branding, privacy, decoration, manifestation and safety, our architectural printable glazing film makes the design appear part of the glass, to stunning effect. 

Bring brighter colour, higher definition and incredible detail to displays. Explore clarity and translucency with subtle vignettes for privacy graphics and create dazzling visual effects as light passes through the printed image. Printing white and metallic ink with process colour can add further depth and solidity to the imagery. 

A high specification self-adhesive coating means the film is as temporary or as permanent as you need it to be. Easy to install in situ, it is also quick and clean to remove. 

  • Made from environmentally friendly PVC-free materials 
  • Hard coated UV printable option for improved scratch resistance and durability over time and cleaning 
  • High chemical resistance  
  • EN13501 B-s1, d0 fire rating

Longacre School cast bronze floor plaque

Fantastic to see the cast bronze floor plaque we supplied to Longacre School now installed. Weyside Architects Ltd. commissioned us to design the plaque from the school logo.

As you can imagine from looking at the sign, both the school and architects were delighted with the result. The schools logo is now set into a new “soft” tarmac pathway as part of Longacre’s ongoing refurbishment programme.

The delivery on this job has led to Weyside approaching us for advice on customising other bespoke signage for the school. It’s always fulfilling to manufacture and install signage in an environment which nurtures the next generation of artists and industry architects.

Client feedback was fantastic and they were particularly grateful to the team for making what seemed a vast undertaking, to being a smooth and effortless process.

Flexface lightbox for Yapton marketing suite

This week we were working in partnership with Phaeon Marketing which saw us install a mitred flexface lightbox at Dandara in Yapton. As you can see the result looks fantastic, especially in the Great British sunshine.

The marketing suite lightbox is fitted with a day/night blackout skin which was liquid laminated to provide a strong long-lasting visual effect. The fascia is aesthetically pleasing, especially when lit from dusk as the text and pattern illuminate whilst the blue background remains dark as blocked out from behind.   

Installation was smooth with the site survey delivering accurate measurements down to the millimetre, which enabled ease of fitting right next to temporary site scaffolding.  

If you’re looking for signage that’s unique or ergonomically engineered to fit your environment, get in touch with one of our sign consultants today.

London Dock E1 with clear brand representation

London Dock E1 with clear brand representation. An external banner full of colour designed to help guide site traffic and visitors to their destination. This strong PVC banner material offers safe and secure mounting during strong weather conditions and will with stand UV radiation. At almost 5m squared the banner was cleared for wind loading and was secured to the side of a staircase with shock cord to allow for movement. Although a temporary signage solution you can expect fantastic performance from both print and banner material.

Elephant Park landscape hoarding and signage

Further hoarding and signage for Lendlease this time installed within the newly developed park environment. As you can see from the pictures below, simple clear messaging is delivered on brand and portrays the level of effort Lendlease go to whilst creating a residential park habitat.

The hoarding at the west side of the park features a graphic story timeline of the history of Elephant Park, whilst the east side represents company branding and further residential and environmental messaging.  

Setting the scene – Chelsea Creek, London

Setting the scene

Location: Chelsea Creek, London
Client: St George
Project: Internally represent the apartments external view whilst enclosed during development.

This smart installation delivered a faux balcony experience within a show apartment of which was encased during development.

The solution we provided consisted of framed lightboxes fronted with back lit printed skins. This not only provided a visualisation of the apartments perspective for the customer but also delivered the right amount of light into the apartment for an accurate living experience. The LED lighting within the lightbox provided energy saving properties with accurate consistent light levels for the room plus anti-flicker. Customers enjoy taking personal videos during their sales experience and signage is now required to perform well on HD video recording as a customer may choose to take footage whilst visiting.

Working with the brand team at St George has seen us provide internal selling solutions at the forefront of their marketing campaigns as showcased here. You can view previous external site hoarding and architectural wayfinding for St George in our previous blogs.

Elephant Park, Elephant & Castle, London

Whilst developing further signage at Elephant Park we were tasked with providing a selection of infills that were to meet the latest government fire regulation standards, specifically for residential apartment blocks. Combustible sheet material has for years been the go-to within the industry for such projects, due to its quality and project longevity favoured by clients but in this case fitting this material within three metres of residential housing has now become obsolete.  To overcome the fire regulation concerns we utilised a printed roll material instead that met all regulations, provided fantastic graphic representation plus added value and peace of mind for the client.  

Branding and signage must meet stringent criteria within application, and it is essential that appropriate risk assessment is taken on a project to ensure all aspects of design, build and fitting meet the latest standards and legislation. Here at Reade Signs safety is paramount.
