Illuminated Sign Trays- A Popular Signage Choice

Illuminated sign trays are a popular choice for signage outside restaurants, bars, and any commercial premises that want to attract passing trade during hours when it is dark, and this type of sign is one of our bestselling products. Illuminated sign trays can be made to your exact size specifications and offer a versatile and cost-effective way of ensuring your business stands out.

We offer three material options for you sign - aluminium composite which is lightweight, cost-effective and suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Aluminium composite trays are available in a great range of standard colours or you can be wrapped in vinyl print or wood effect film. We offer an aluminium option which is more robust and ideal for outdoor applications. The tray is folded, welded, filled and smoothed to create seamless corners and joins. This option can be powder coated to any standard RAL colour. Lastly we offer a stainless steel tray that is available in either a brushed or mirrored chrome finish. This option is suitable for both indoor and outdoor usage, and the marine grade steel is ideal for outdoor signage.

Your illuminated tray sign is stencil cut with your chosen design (we offer an excellent design service if required) and then backed in an opal acrylic which is lit from within the sign using high bright LED lights. All of the wiring for the LED modules is hidden within the body of the tray, and the high bright LED modules are low wattage for low energy consumption. Your illuminated tray sign is supplied with fixing rails and an IP68 outdoor rated power supply. The tray can also be used to house your power supply if required.

In addition to our illuminated sign trays, we also design, manufacture and install non-illuminated custom sign trays, as well as projecting tray signs and illuminated projecting tray signs.

Be sure to also check out our other signage products including sign lettering, our great range of illuminated signs, lightboxes, neon signs, sign posts, digital signage, signage boards and office branding for walls, windows and floors.

I enquired about a neon sign (and a few other things) through the website. I had a response within 10 minutes and received my quote the very same day. The staff were knowledgeable enough to advise me on a few things, which I was more than happy to oblige. When my order arrived it was perfect - the quality is excellent and can tell it's all premium materials and craftsmanship that will last a long time.

I ordered a trough light for our company sign on the website as after looking on multiple other sites this was the easiest to use and very fairly priced. The light arrived exactly as I requested it and within the delivery timeframe they provide. Will definitely use again for our next signage requirements.
