Simple maintenance wins the day for William Smith's back-lit box system

William Smith's Flexfast back-lit box system is regularly chosen by Rainbow Signs & Maintenance for its clear image and ease of installation and maintenance, when providing signage for stores, shopping malls and car parks.

"We like the Flexfast back-lit boxes because the tensioning system is very good as it can be adjusted to individual requirements" says Rainbow Signs & Maintenance's Kevin Robinson. "They give a brighter and sharper image and are also simpler to fit compared to acrylic panels".

"Size is now a big issue, with shopping malls and car parks often requiring larger signage and this is where Flexfast really comes into its own. It requires minimal maintenance compared to other systems, especially where a large format is needed in exposed and high level positions. The boxes are very easy to access for cleaning, changing lamps and electrical maintenance."

"We have been working with William Smith for around 15 years now," adds Mr. Robinson, "and we know that when we place an order the finished product will be right and delivered on time. We particularly like the fact that you have one dedicated contact and have been impressed with the continuity of staff and level of personal service from a relatively large company. They understand our requirements and that gives us confidence that we will get the service we need."

Flexfast is a flexible faced back-lit box system, featuring one of the most accurate face tensioning systems currently available to provide a wrinkle-free finish. It can be easily assembled using standard power tools, enabling up to 50% savings on installation times to be achieved.

It is a versatile system suitable for any flexface material, including Seemee IV and Panaflex 945. Full colour graphics for the flexible face are manufactured by William Smith using translucent or opaque materials and 3-10 year warranties can be supplied where required for graphics that are to be subjected to outdoor environments.

Large Flexface sign - at least 3 storey's highRemovable cover plates on all sides of the box provide access to all electrical components, allowing fast and easy maintenance without disturbance to the face. Robust and capable of withstanding severe weather conditions Flexfast boxes can be stove-enamelled to any RAL or BS colour.

These boxes can be supplied as a finished unit, in readyto- assemble kit form, or in full lengths of extrusion. All elements of the backlit box can also be supplied as individual components.
