The return joins are usually folded around the corner and visible along the edges, they are produced this way to add strength.

Joins can also be produced on the corners if requested.

Trays can be produced in multiple pieces and supplied with "male and female" joins which allow the two pieces to slot together.

Railed Signs

Small, medium and large rails can be attached by either rivets or tape and railed signs can be produced in multiple pieces. Panels being joined side by side have a standard rail run to the edge and joining sections are supplied separately for customers to rivet on site.

Panels that are joined top to bottom have an interlocking rail attached along the edge (male part of the rail overhangs) which is slotted into the other rail and locked on site by the customer.
