Benefits Of External Notice Boards

Are you looking for an external notice board? There are many types to choose from, and it should be one that suits the purpose.

When choosing your type of external notice board, ensure it is weatherproof.  If you decide you would like a timber notice board with a display case, according to where the display case is to be on show, it may be wise to consider a vandal-proof case, one that is shatterproof, lockable and that can have graffiti removed easily.

Another type of external notice board is made out of aluminium.  These can be snap-frame notice boards to edge-lit LED poster cases.  It’s really down to personal choice and what will work best for you.    Most aluminium notice board display cases incorporate a ventilation system to ensure there is no build up of condensation within the display case.  With regard to back boards, you could consider having a magnetic one which allows notices to be inserted and removed easily without the need for pins.

If you are looking for an external notice board that can be wall-mounted perhaps outside your office or warehouse, a Foamex notice board could be just the thing you are looking for.  These are relatively inexpensive, weatherproof and can be over-laminated with a crystal laminate with the design of your choice.  These external notice boards can be really effective and eye-catching.  It is better to use a minimal amount of text rather than overloading your notice board and making it look ‘too busy’.   

If you are looking for a secure, lockable external notice board, perhaps you would like to consider the vandal-resistant, wall mounted 55mm aluminium extrusion with a strong hinge system.  These external notice boards may be fitted to a wall in either portrait or landscape and are available with a reinforced lock and hinge system.

Post-mounted external notice boards also come in a variety of shapes and sizes to accommodate your requirements.  Post heights are available in different heights and can be embedded into a concrete base for stability.  These can also come in anodised aluminium or stainless steel. You could perhaps consider having the glazing to the notice board made of Plexishock glazing, which is an excellent choice of shock-resistant glazing or the unbreakable polycarbonate glazing. 

Some of these notice boards come with integral flush doors complete with a magnetic backing board, to ensure your notices or advertisements will not slip, and eliminates the need for using pins.  With regard to frames, these can come powder-coated and in a range of different colours with a choice of having a top, side or bottom opening hinged door, whatever best suit your needs.  

Depending upon the amount of information you are considering inserting into an external notice board, you could opt for a double-door notice board. You could perhaps think about a maintenance-free, man-made timber notice board or a maintenance-free recycled plastic notice board. 

With many external notice boards in the marketplace, you are sure to find one to your requirements and one that will complement the information or advertising you are displaying.
