    we use these for both letters and for panels - if a panel we just put lots of them on the back circa 1ft apart You use a 2 pack adhesive and the fixings don't fail. Only downside is the plastic cups to start to perish after about 8 - 10 years so make sure you remind them to replace the cups in good time

    silicone is just fine. What we have done in past is cut pvc circles about 3" diameter, 2 part epoxy primer on both sides and silicone them to back of acm sign. The pads on top of sign were drilled and studded so I could have something anchored into wall and of course silicone the other pads.

    This will last and it will hang with no issues

    Hello. I was happy to see that a product that my design studio (Wills Watson+Associates; www.wills-watson.co.uk) designed, is being discussed in this thread. In terms of signage, Buttonfix Limited won the Product of the Year Award at the British Sign Awards. It also won the Good Design Australia Award and I'm delighted to announce that Buttonfix Limited has just won a Queen's Award for Enterprise in Innovation. The Type 1 Bonded is made from ABS and can be solvent bonded onto acrylic or used with constructional adhesives. Lincoln Sentry sells Button-Fix in Australia. The company is happy to answer any technical questions via their web site.
