We are specialists in the production of routed wooden signage and are very proud of our environmental credentials. Not only is wood the ultimate recyclable material, it also has other properties that raise it above the ordinary.
A number of other materials can be, and are used for sign making, among them plastic and metal. In any comparison between these materials their embodied energy use must be taken into consideration. Wood has the lowest figure of any material and at the end of its useful life as a sign structure can be safely converted to some other use or ultimately as fuel for the modern generation of wood fuel burners. During its time as a sign it acts as a carbon sink; a vital asset in these times of climate change and co2 emissions. All our timber comes from sustainable sources and we are fully accredited by the Forest Stewardship Council, and we achieve a carbon neutral effect by sustainable woodland management.
We also use water-based preservatives which permanently protect the wood from the weather and pollution while respecting the environment.
