East Devon District Council required the expertise of Bollards International to provide an alternative solution for replacing the existing cast iron fingerposts previously used for the seaside town of Sidmouth.
The use of polyurethane was their key decision when looking to provide new signage for the town. Bollards International's Manchester styled finger posts were chosen to suit the surrounding Victorian and Regency architecture.
The Manchester Fingerpost has a fully galvanised recycled steel core and is moulded from engineering-grade polyurethane elastomer containing chemicals derived from a renewable source (rapeseed oil) and fillers from recycled materials.
Ensuring the posts remain of a consistently high quality, a top-coat of high-performance, two-part polyurethane paint is used. This finish chemically bonds with the PU body eliminating any possibility of paint flaking or chipping. It is the best product on the market for long-term durability and weathering resistance.
The Heritage style cast aluminium fingers feature raised text and borders highlighted in gold, with a classic Pagoda finial top mount. These attractive information posts provided the ideal solution for guiding the public to the local amenities and attractions.
Bollards International successfully manufactured and delivered a cost-effective and durable solution for this prestigious project. East Devon District Council were highly delighted with the way in which Bollards International's Manchester fingerposts complemented the town centre.
