Sign Fixtures and Fittings: Buying Guide

Ensuring that safety signs are properly and securely installed is just as important as making sure that you have the correct safety signs. Employers are responsible for ensuring that the correct safety signs are being used in a workplace, and that this signage is highly visible and legible at all times.

Choosing the Right Signs

When considering which sign fixings you need, it is important to complete a full risk assessment of the workplace and identify the areas that will need signage. Some areas will pose unique challenges, such as outdoor environments, damp areas such as swimming pools, and areas that require mobile signage.

It is also important to consider whether the worksite requires permanent or temporary signage as some of the sign fixings are more appropriate for temporary needs, whereas others are suited to more permanent installations.

Types of Sign Fixings

Seton has a wide range of wall and ceiling fixings to ensure that you can find the exact fixtures required to meet the specific needs of your workplace. Below are some of the many different types of sign fixtures and fixings Seton offers:

Stanchions are portable, stand-up outdoor sign fixings that can be placed anywhere as and when needed, making them particularly useful for construction sites, roadways and crowd control. These temporary signs fold out when needed and there are clips to secure them in place, making them ideal as temporary signage. The Seton range carries classic Metal Stanchions, along with stanchions specifically designed for reflective signs and Double Sided Stanchions.

Self-adhesive tape and tabs are extremely convenient for mounting signs or displays as they require almost no installation, just the application of the adhesive tape or tab. Seton’s Self-Adhesive Tabs are ideal for when you need to put up posters or notices as they can be easily removed without causing damage and are designed for more temporary measures. The Double Sided Sign Mounting Foam Tape, however, is a more heavy-duty option that can withstand moisture, chemicals and temperature ranges of -18ºC to +66ºC. This tape can affix to uneven surfaces and is great for displays and exhibitions.

  • Posts and fixings are some of the most popular sign fixings for a reason; they are sturdy, durable fixings for permanent signs. Seton offers Post & Fixings Kits that include all of the installation essentials for sign post fixings. Alternatively you can find posts, caps, sign channel fixings and sign fixings standoff, all available to buy separately.

  • Permanent adhesive is ideal for when you need to permanently mount a sign but want to avoid drilling holes. This heavy-duty adhesive is both UV and water-resistant, so it is a great option for wall sign fixings for both indoor and outdoor environments. SignFix Permanent Adhesive can also be used as a sealant and used for damp and uneven surfaces, making it a great tool for sign installation in tricky areas.

  • Nylon ties and elastic ties are simple, easy ways to hang temporary signs and banners. Elastic Banner Ties hang banner signs easily and professionally using a tensioning system that mitigates the risk of the banner sagging and ripping. They can be easily affixed to fences, railings or scaffolding. Nylon Ties are a cost-effective way to hang temporary safety signs securely. These ties also have a convenient releasable closure to make installation and take-down even easier.

  • Suspended sign fixings are a great way to efficiently hang signs, such as fire exit, parking, or directional signs, from the ceiling. The Z Hooks Hanging Kit Seton offers is designed specifically for double-sided signs and is easy to install; the kit includes ceiling frame clips, self-adhesive pads and Z hooks. Seton also offers a Hanging Kit for Double-Sided Signs with S hooks that is exceedingly easy to install and includes S hooks and chains to hold the sign.

  • Screw fixings are a cost-effective and easy way to install signs. Seton has Sign Screw Fixings that include rawlplugs and screws, and are great for installing rigid signs into position. When additional protection is needed, Seton also has Security Fixing Kits that avoid tampering and vandalism as, once the screws are in place, they cannot be undone with a conventional screwdriver.

These are just a few of the many different types of sign fixings Seton offers. In addition, Seton has a range of sign fixture accessories, such as suction cups, screw fixings, wire sign fixings, strap tensioners and post end caps, along with other products.


What does the law say?

According to the HSE, it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that all employees, customers and workplace visitors are properly warned of any potential health risks and hazards. This involves not just ensuring that the correct signs are used, but also that those signs are installed in such a way that they are highly visible and well maintained. Using the correct fixtures and fittings is essential in signage installation to ensure that the signs can be seen by all visitors to a workplace.

When deciding where to place safety signs and what surfaces they should be affixed to, it is important to walk through the workplace and identify any potential safety risks. During this risk assessment you should make notes of where the safety signs should be installed, and consider the kind of fixings and fixtures you will need to install the signs properly.

The HSE has a series of helpful guidelines on how to perform a risk assessment and choose the correct safety signs and signals for your workplace.

What kinds of wall fixings and fixtures are there?

Seton also has an array of important sign fixing accessories, including suction pads, strap tensioners, drive screws and post end caps.

What kind of wall fixings do I need?

Each workplace presents unique challenges with regard to which safety signs to use and how to install them. Before selecting wall fixings, it is important to first determine whether signs need to be permanently or temporarily installed. The next stage is to consider where they need to be placed – once you know where the signs are to be installed, it will become clear to you which kind of wall fixings you need as each type of sign fixing is designed for specific environments and surfaces.

How are exterior signs mounted?

Exterior signs can be mounted in a variety of ways, depending on the specific needs of the worksite and the signage material. Signposts and post fixings are very popular because they are both sturdy and versatile. Signs are affixed to posts using fixings and Channel Clamps. For signs made of rigid plastic, SignFix Adhesive is a great option as it is UV and water resistant, hardy, and extremely easy to use. Alternatively, if you are interested in hanging large signs or promotional banners, Seton also offers Elastic Banner Ties, which are fixings specifically designed for banners.
