Applelec introduces Totem profile range

Exclusive to Applelec, TOTEM is a new extruded aluminium profile range designed to deliver straightforward totem construction for indoor and outdoor use. The aluminium profiles are available individually or in bulk linear lengths or can be used to create a finished, cost effective sign constructed by Applelec.

Applec TotemThe range is ideal for use in the creation of eye catching identity and directional signage for retail and leisure parks, vehicle showrooms, corporate identity signage and site maps or information signage. Featuring a durable construction which can withstand severe weather conditions, the Totem profile range can be used to produce totem signage up to an impressive height of six metres.

Ian Drinkwater, Applelec Managing Director explains: "The Totem range offers maximum flexibility to our customers. Linear profile lengths can be purchased, enabling sign makers to create signage in-house, or a cost effective modular totem can be constructed by Applelec. The modular construction of Totem significantly reduces the cost of a bespoke fabricated totem and provides durability without compromising on style."

Totem consists of a simple range of profiles, which includes one basic profile and three decorative cover profiles allowing for a rectangular, elliptical or rounded design to be constructed.

The distinctive feature of the intelligent Totem system concerns the way in which each totem is constructed. A set of two basic profiles are mounted around the aluminium or steel interior frame of the totem, then two cover profiles are mounted to the base sections. By using square or rectangular box sections with different outside dimensions and wall thicknesses, it is possible to create totems with a variable depth in standard increments of 10, 15 or 20cm and a height of up to 6m with the same basic profile.

A number of flexible features ensure stylish and distinctive elements may be added to each totem. Face illumination is achieved using fluorescent tubes, LED modules or Applelec's LED Light Sheet, whilst side illumination can be added in the space created between the end profiles. Face panels are fitted into the extrusion profiles in any required material up to a maximum material thickness of 3mm. Longevity of the completed totem sign is maintained as the face panels can be lifted out in order to update the panels or graphics and to facilitate replacement of any damaged electrical components.

Gemma Patel of nationwide sign company NSI Limited, commented: "The modular Totem supplied by Applelec was well manufactured and by using this system, we were able to able to create a stylish totem sign that our customer was very happy with."

The Totem extrusion range from Applelec delivers construction flexibility within a cost effective modular system to produce stylish and durable identity signage.
