BCP - Road Traffic Aluminium Composite Panel

A Righton Blackburns has developed its own range of Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) that is particularly suitable for the Road-Traffic sign markets, available in a variety of colours and finishes, in addition to sign and display applications due to its high strength, rigidity and durability. Supported by a wide range of post, clips and rails. This product can be supplied as cut to size Circles & Triangles.

This rigidity within the sheet is achieved by its construction of a Polyethylene core sandwiched between two thin aluminium sheets and it is widely used throughout the road traffic sector helping to combat theft due to its significantly lower value.

This combination of the materials and manufacturing process provides a product that can be up to a third of the weight for the same rigidity of more traditional sign and display panelling products.

All of Righton Blackburns composite panels are available pre-finished in polyester paint, offering a five-year product guarantee. In addition to standard colours, any colour is available providing you can satisfy a minimum production quantity.

Our ACM product can be supplied as full sheets, or cut to bespoke sizes, shapes or manufactured into sign trays.

CeluKa Foam sheet: Suitable for use in advertising, display structures, cladding, lining and more.

What Is Celuka?
Celuka is primarily a process and as with free foamed PVC, Celuka produces a sheet that has been expanded with gas to create a cell structure that helps to deliver a rigid, yet lightweight product. In the Celuka process the sheet is cooled immediately upon exiting the die which acts to suppress cell formation at the surface, creating a hard, high quality finish, while allowing the hot melt to expand inwards. The process is typically preferred for thicker sheets, available from 10mm.

Applications
An excellent replacement material for wood based products, Celuka sheets have the same screw pull rating as pine yet will never be troubled by rot, mould, swelling, chemical attack or insect infestation and have extremely safe fire performance to BS476/7 Class 1. Celuka sheets are suitable for use in many different applications, as with free foamed PVC, including advertising, display structures, cladding, lining and more.

Polycarbonate

For durability and design freedom, polycarbonate is a modern material ideal for a diverse range of glazing applications for schools, bus and smoking shelters, canopies and machine guards or encapsulation projects. Polycarbonate is the ideal safety glazing material where clarity, impact resistance and fire performance are critical requirements. Able to absorb high levels of energy, with an impact resistance 200 times that of glass, at half the weight, polycarbonate sheet is the ideal product for use both indoors and out, including commercial buildings subject to more demanding regulation or where there is a high risk of potential damage.

Marlon FS flat polycarbonate is available in a range of tints, colours and finishes that offer different levels of light transmission and light diffusion depending on the designer or specifier’s requirements. Clear sheet provides high optical clarity, making it the ideal glazing option for those applications that require high levels of light transmission.

Depending on sheet thickness, clear Marlon FS offers exceptional light transmissions of between 80% and 92%. Marlon FS is also available in tinted options including bronze, opal, green, blue and grey offering varying degrees of solar control, resulting in cooler internal environments. Whilst solar transmission is reduced, the sheet continues to transmit free natural light, reducing the need for artificial light, helping reduce energy cost and associated CO2 emissions.

The weight of Marlon FS flat polycarbonate is only half that of plate glass, making handling and installation ultimately more convenient. The strength and rigidity of Marlon FS, FSX and FS Hard enhance the spanning capability, making the sheet self-supporting, resulting in reduced requirements for support structures and increased resource efficiency. The material is extremely practical and can be cut on site to the required shape or size, minimizing waste. Marlon FSX features UV protection on both sides of the sheet which can help reduce both installation time and unnecessary losses due to incorrect installations.

Marlon FS flat polycarbonate sheet provides excellent design flexibility. It can be cut, cold curved or thermoformed, without losing impact strength or durability, enabling the designer to create interesting glazing solutions for a bright naturally lit interior environment. It is the ideal glazing solution for covered walkways, canopies, skylights, domes, bus shelters and train windows. In addition, Marlon FS flat polycarbonate can be screen printed directly and the smooth and even surface makes it ideal for vinyl adhesion. It has a great bonding compatibility and its resistance to knocks and scratches makes it perfect for use in high traffic areas and applications including signs, point of sale and store fixtures.
