OXO Sign

The Thames London OXO Sign

Architect Albert W Moore was commissioned by the Liebig Extract of Meat Company, to build the site in 1927 keeping as much of the original structure. The Local Authority was very fussy about huge illuminated signs especially being seen from the Thames. When Moore submitted plans to have the company name in lights blazoned across the building the Council were none too happy with it. But there’s Moore! He decided to use OXO (which just happened to be a subsidiary company of Liebig) And as you know it reads OXO vertically rather horizontally

  • O
  • X
  • O

So why did they accept this?

He claimed it was “an elemental geometric form? rather than a word. Hence the Oxo “sign? could no longer be classified as an advert.

can you better this wiki entry?  If so, juct click edit and then save.

Trestles can bought individually, but a pair of trestles is required.

Trestles can be bought upto 12ft high. A catwalk or staging as some call it, spans between one tresle to the other. the trestle is around 3ft wide at the bottom, tapering in more tearer the top.

The catwalk is approx 2.5ft wide.

both trestle and catwalk are manufactured in either Timber or aluminium. the timber trestle & catwalk are much heavier and also break easier than the aluminium alternative.

Trestles make an excellent work platform for general signage upto shopfront hieght & vinyl installation upto artic truck & trailer size.

Trestles are very quick and easy to setup. they are also a very stable working platform.

It is advised to check on working regulations in your area or country, as well as the required safe working hieght to work with trestles without a barrier / hand rail system, in place.

like the catwalk, a barrier can be purchased complete and ready to clip onto the catwalk quick and easyily.
