All Phoenix Foundry’s cast bronze plaques, signs, commemorative products and cast metal lettering are easy to install or fix to any surface. Your required fixing system will be specified by you when you place your order, and the cost of a standard fixing system is included in the price of your product.
Bronze plaques and signs are normally straightforward to install, and are usually mounted on a wall, base or other structure. The installation of more detailed or heavier bronze commemorative products, such as a large crest or honour roll, would be dealt with by Phoenix Foundry on a case-by-case basis.
Various systems are available to ensure a practical, safe and permanent fixing is achieved for most plaques and signs:
Cast metal letters and numbers
Cast metal letters and numbers up to 75mm high have flat backs and are usually fixed with adhesive, but can have fixing pins on request. Letters over 75mm high have drilled and tapped holes into which threaded studs are fitted. These studs are supplied with the letters or numbers. This ensures that the product is secure and has a vandal-resistant fitting method. Larger sizes of lettering are supplied with a hollow back, which significantly reduces their weight and makes them easy to attach to any surface.
Flat Face Recessed Face
With metal letters and numbering, it is very important to get the spacing between the characters right. Phoenix will always supply this product with a paper template to help locate fixing holes or areas for the adhesive to ensure that the letters and numbers are installed with the correct spacing and alignments.
