About Blackburns Metals
Blackburns Metals now supplies one of the largest stock ranges of semi-finished raw materials in the country to every market segment including the signs, print and visual displays sector.
Blackburns continue to lead the market for the supply of raw materials into the commercial and traffic sign markets. Our stock of Policryl Cast Acrylic, Komaprint Digital Grade PVC Foam and Digital Grade Fluted Polypropylene sheet products for the digital print and display markets means that Blackburns have a comprehensive range of sign substrates and components together with ‘kit’ and ‘semi fabrication’ options.
Sign makers are able to choose between buying individual components such as aluminium composite sheet, sign channels, posts and a range of plastic substrates as separate items, or in kit form with bespoke fabrication to the customers finished requirements.
Additionally we support the fabricators of large structural and architectural signs who require aluminium and stainless steel sections and sheets from the widest range of options in the market.
With our latest new product “STEEL COLOR” we can meet the designer’s options to create that stand out sign in coloured and patterned stainless steel sheet.
OFFSITE MANUFACTURING SERVICE…We offer our customers a semi-manufacturing service to allow them to concentrate on the added value of sign design and installation. This wide range of equipment, such as CNC Routers, Riveting Machines guillotines and Saws, gives Blackburns the ability to produce bespoke sign trays or cassettes and intricate shaped signs for external and internal purposes.
INCREASED CAPACITY AND QUICKER LEAD TIMES…Blackburns has invested heavily in developing the sign tray manufacturing element of its business, and this has enabled the company to increase its capacity, offering quicker lead times with the facility to cut specific and bespoke sizes, fret work lettering and shapes to our customers immediate requirements.
