Barnard Castle-based sign maker, William Smith, proved the perfect recommendation for DeSigns Signage in its recent project for South Hunsley School.


Considered one of the UK's leading signage and vehicle branding companies, DeSigns had been contracted to cover several sun-damaged panels on the building's exterior. The job required the workers to be as quick and discrete as possible, without causing disruption to daily school life.

William Smith, the UK's oldest sign maker, recommended Avery Dennison Facade Film as the ideal solution for the demands of the project, in particular the importance of time and speed, as well as the scale of the area to be covered. Using two rolls of the White Aluminium Gloss FF RAL 9006, the project was finished within 16 hours.

Marketing Manager Lindsay Appleton said: "When DeSigns came to us with their project, we already knew we had the perfect solution on hand. Facade Film is a highly specified conformable cast film and is an excellent, durable and cost effective alternative to traditional paint."
Avery Dennison Facade Film is designed for building facades, panels and window frames for restoration, restyling or branding purposes. Its strong adhesive can withstand all weather conditions and it has no drying time. The application process is much more efficient than traditional paint methods and the film has a life expectancy of over ten years.

Speaking about the product, Commercial Director of DeSigns, Shane Windas, said: "The Avery Facade film was designed to meet the exact requirements of our project, and is a fantastic product for builders and architectural designers.
"From start to finish, we couldn't have asked for the process and application to be any smoother and I'd happily use the product again and recommend it to anyone.

"We've worked with William Smith for over 15 years. It's a great company with great people who have extensive knowledge of the signage and graphics industry."
Avery Dennison Facade Film is available in 22 standard colours, with colour matching optional for corporate colour requirements.
