Advice on large sign for steel clad building

Morning all,

Need some advice on producing a large sign which is going to be mounted onto the side of a steel clad industrial building.

The sign needs to be 4700mm long and approximately 800mm deep. I dont want to suggest just screwing dibond straight to the building but wondered what might be a better option.

I'd thought about a sign tray with mounted graphics - but really need some guidance please.

Best wishes
Andy

Hi Andy,

we just use Splayed rivets and touch up the heads with One Shot paint or any metal paint will do.
