Our polypropylene material is highly recommended for outdoor use. It is UV stable and resists fading and cracking outdoors for three to five years. It is non-toxic and is Food Contact approved, conforming to AS 2070 (Plastic Materials For Food Contact And Use). Enduring temperatures of -40C to 160C, this polypropylene is fully recyclable and is an environmentally responsible alternative to PVC. Not only is the poly we use in our signs made from over 50% recylcled material, it is also certified as Carbon Neutral. All signs are 1.4mm thick with rounded corners and four corner mounting holes.

Self Adhesive Polypropylene

These signs are standard polypropylene with an adhesive backing. An industrial grade pressure sensitive adhesive backing has been applied to allow easy installation of signs by adhering to most clean, flate, and dry surfaces in interior and protected exterior situations. It has a good temperature rating of up to 100C with excellent initial tack and long-term adhesion properties.

Self Adhesive Vinyl

This durable vinyl features a fully self adhesive backing so you can adhere it to virtually any clean, dry surface. Our vinyl is manufactured to perform under a range of varying temperatures (-40C to 80C) and humidity. Well suited to curved or rough surfaces, just peel off the release paper and quickly apply. With an expected indoor lifetime of five to eight years, our self adhesive vinyl offers a long-term solution that is also highly resistant to fading, shrinking, and chemicals.

Steel (Metal)

Our metal substrate is guaranteed to withstand temperatures of -40C to 80C and has an outdoor life expectancy of five to eight years. This material complies with two steel manufacturing standards AS/NZSS 1365 and AS 1397. The 0.6mm thick material holds up well in windy conditions and is well suited to the outdoors. All metal signs come with rounded corners and four corner mounting holes.


Manufactured from 3mm corrugated plastic, it is a lightweight, low cost, and durable material. More rigid than solid polypropylene but flexible enough to mount on slightly curved surfaces. Ideal for short-term outdoor use, especially for temporary applications such as construction and building sites.

Brady UltraTuff - 25 Year Guarantee

For signs that will be exposed to abrasive chemicals, extensive UV, or the likelihood of graffiti, we highly recommend Brady UltraTuff signs. UltraTuff signs have a protective overlaminate which is manufactured from a high grade polyester, with great abrasion resistance and good resistance to UV radiation and weathering exposure. It has excellent resistance to chemicals and solvents and is designed for use in harsh environments to protect the signs message. 

Retro-Reflective Aluminium and Steel

Retro-reflective options are available in Steel or Aluminium. Aluminium is manufactured to comply to AS/NZS 1734 and ideal for use where resistance to corrosion and strength are a necessity. Steel signs are manufactured in accordance with AS/NZS 1365 and 1397 and are one of the more robust sign materials, perfect for outdoor use. We only use Retro-reflective material which complies to AS/NZS 1906.1, available in Class 1 and Class 2 options. Class 1 is the brightest, most durable retro-reflective material available.

BradyGlo Luminous

BradyGlo luminous material B-324 is a non-toxic and non-radioactive material. It takes only five minutes of ambient fluorescent light to charge and it will glow consistently for 10+ hours.
