Insign completes 85th Sales Counter for Toolstation

Insign have recently completed our 85th signage scheme for Toolstation, a UK wide online chain of sales counters providing tools and fixings for the building and other allied trades.

Since 2007, Insign have installed signage to a new Toolstation sales counter, on average, every two weeks, as far ranging throughout the country from Inverness to Plymouth, the most recent installations being Basingstoke, Watford, Wolverhampton.

In June this year, the icing on the cake for Insign was to manufacture and install a new large sign for their head office and distribution centre in Bridgwater, Somerset. This was a huge undertaking, which included removal of their existing sign using specialist access equipment and almost one week to install.

The new sign was 15m x 3m in size and manufactured using our Signcomp flex-face system displaying a large format digitally printed face tensioned over the frame as one large panel without the need for jointing.

Also, as a new product for Toolstation, we internally illuminated the sign using low energy white LED modules. This is now very much widely used within the industry and increasingly specified by clients as a more environmentally friendly solution, as opposed to standard fluorescent bulbs, with substantial savings on energy and maintenance costs over the lifespan of the sign.

This was a shrewd and forward thinking decision by Toolstation, as although the initial cost of the sign was higher than using conventional fluorescent bulbs, Toolstation identified the long term benefits of LED illumination, and have now specified LED illuminated signage for their new Sales Counter in Stoke on Trent which opens shortly.

LED Modules fitted into flex-face lightbox for Toolstation head office, Bridgwater.
