What would Vista System consider the most important features, when launching a new product into the market?
We manufacture and sell a very wide variety of aluminium sign frames, from wall, suspended, table and post signs to pylons up to four metres high. Established 22 years ago, a key focus of our business is to provide our clients – namely, sign professionals – with easy-to-install products.
We understand that when our clients purchase the sign frames from us, this is only the beginning of their journey; that they still need to prepare the graphic inserts, insert them into the signs, then take the signs to the designated venue and install them on site. It’s vital that their clients are pleased with the end result.
We carefully ensure that nothing more than a screwdriver will be needed for assembling – and perhaps some silicone gel, glue and a drill for most installations.
We have a great R&D team, who are always ready to provide assembly drawings and offer advice regarding installation and more. All you have to do is ask!
Clients can also benefit from speedy and easy changing of graphics. For most sign frames, graphics can be printed and changed by the end user himself. All small signs can easily take paper graphics, if installed indoors. A single suction cup, supplied by Vista with every purchase, does the job. How great is that!?
That does sound great, Pnina. So, how does Vista System make sure that signs can be fitted to walls or floors securely for durability whilst still maintaining an aesthetically pleasing form?
Sometimes, the project and specifications may be a little out of the ordinary, for our clients, and when that happens, we are only too pleased to offer guidance. For example, if the walls are made of different materials, we recommend having a specialist on site to advise on the best screw or method of installation.
For larger signs, such as POST & PANEL signs or PYLONS, we may suggest the supervision of a construction engineer for anchoring the pylons into a concrete base, however, basic rules of thumb can be provided by our R&D team in the form of drawings for various anchor types, depth of inserting supports into concrete, etc.
We pride ourselves on the strength of our materials and the quality of production. Aluminium is our primary material and this was no random choice. It is durable, yet it does not corrode or get patina when installed outdoors. It withstands the elements beautifully and needs no particular maintenance, if fitted properly.
When installed indoors, it can last for decades, is easily cleaned and keeps a sleek and classic look.
Graphics used outdoors should be UV coated and made of durable materials such as film, vinyl or other water resistant types of substrates.
Vista's polycarbonate clear covers that are supplied with all sign types, are also UV coated and can withstand up to 50 degrees C.
For projecting signs, hung 90 degrees to the wall, we developed a wide range of wall brackets to fit all kinds of installation requests. Some of them are made of steel, for a more robust, heavy duty installation. There is also an aluminium wall bracket which was recently developed, and soon took the market by storm, for being both durable, beautiful and vandal proof. Yes: vandal proof products are growing in popularity.
The FS wall bracket is vandal proof. Its installation is done in two stages - one element is screwed into the wall, while the other slides over it and is closed by a hidden screw, using only a special Alan key.
Our suspended signs are sold with correlating steel cables. Recommendations for additional cables needed are given to clients purchasing larger signs. Special ceiling fixtures are also provided with any suspended signs, creating both a strong and safe support for the sign and a beautiful cosmetic solution for a seamless and neat installation.
What colour does Vista’s aluminium come in?
All our signage is made of anodised aluminium. Available colours are clear (natural silver aluminium), black and gold. However, we can also send all extrusions and end caps to a paint shop, to be RAL painted, if we have the right RAL number.
