From humble beginnings as a metal fabricator, Applelec combines activities as a trade manufacturer of bespoke signage, display and lighting products and as an LED supplier. Anodised finishing of flat-cut letters is making an impact, despite often being perceived as a complicated and therefore expensive option.
Anodised signage is an art to perfect and one that many companies are cautious to offer. As stunning as it can be tricky to produce, it is often perceived as an expensive option which can show up the natural flaws of the material.
However, Applelec offers a range which overcomes both obstacles to create a beautifully anodised product which stands apart from other flat-cut finishes to complement any design.
The grained and brushed detail achieved by the company’s vibrantly coloured flat- cut anodised signage is both distinctive and striking. This hardwearing material offers resistance to corrosion, which makes it less likely to crack and peel and has meant that their anodised products have fast become a favourite with Appelec’s clients and their clients’ customers alike.
Head of customer engagement Andy Armitage explains: “Applelec’s anodised finish is a really noteworthy option, providing signage companies and designers with something uniquely different to offer clients. It creates a beautiful impact that is supported with our quality guarantee and customer support.”
The bonded anodised finish is achieved through a polished, lacquered and painted process, giving the aluminium a strengthening protection which is suitable for both internal and external signage, even in the most extreme environments.
The anodising process ensures colour stability while retaining the appearance of the finish for longer. This not only increases the product’s lifespan but provides a low maintenance signage solution, ensuring long-term value.
Applelec’s anodised colour finishes liberate flat-cut lettering design restrictions, providing endless opportunities for creativity. Ranging from bright and vibrant to more classic tones, the colours offer a depth and richness that is distinct and beautifully finished, making them a perfect option for eye-level signage requirements.
