Printed hoarding board is produced by Johnsons for construction site perimeters and areas for site branding. The aluminium composite panels are extremely durable and perfect for cladding existing hoarding board perimeters. But how long does it last?
We use high quality hoarding board to print to. This is because we know that it receives our high quality print output extremely well, and also that the manufacturers of the board give a 5 year life to the board.
Can it last longer than 5 years?
Yes. We know that in most cases, that the board will last longer than 5 years, though the position of the hoarding and the kind of weathering it will receive can shorten the life of the print on the boards.
Will Anti-Graffiti Laminate Prolong the Life of the Hoarding?
We apply Anti-Graffiti laminate to all of our hoarding boards unless specifically requested not to by our clients. Laminate of any kind will not only protect the board but also, more importantly, the print applied to the aluminium composite panel. Anti-Graffiti laminate also does this and enables graffiti to be removed if the hoarding is defaced.
Our House Builder flags and flag installation services offer great quality and an efficient installation. Most commonly used by our clients alongside new-build sites, and our full service includes hoarding, signage and monoliths.
House Builder Flags and Marketing Suite Graphics
The House Builder flags and flagpoles are the most popular product. They are 6 metres tall to the top of the finial, and include a 2 metre long x 900mm wide flag. This portrait flag drapes permanently from a rotating arm ensuring a permanently expanded graphic even when there is little or no breeze.
The flags are weighted from the base and attached to the flagpole by a weighting ring and mast bands. This ensures the flag drapes permanently to enhance the graphics, logo's or text. The knitted polyester flags are single sided and have a 95% show through, giving a graphic on both sides of the flag.
We install the house builder flags with a rotating arm. This means that the flags will turn into the direction of wind direction to reduce the stress on the flag and flagpole and thus increase the life of the flag. Flags can be easily replaced in the future by removing the flagpole from the sleeve which is fixed permanently into the ground.
Double sided flags
Many clients go for double sided flags which include a light-block liner to prevent graphics merging together from both sides. However, the flags look fantastic as a single sided flag where the lightweight fabric drapes well and lasts that little bit longer.

We were asked by Fluid design agency to produce premium hoarding for their client in Kent. As well as the usual printed hoarding boards, this also included cut acrylic letters and logo's, tray signs and solar powered spotlights to highlight the branding.
Cut Acrylic Lettering & Logo's
The cut acrylic letters and logo's were produced on our flatbed cutting facility in Cheshire. The depths of the acrylic used was 19mm, 10mm and 5mm. Whilst the 5mm letters were adhered direct to the hoarding boards, the larger 10mm and 19mm acrylic letters were adhered using locators, projecting them some 20mm away form the hoarding board surface. This gave the hoarding a premium look.
Tray signs on hoarding boards
Solar Powered Lighting used on Hoarding
To add to this premium hoarding, we used solar powered spotlights. These were positioned on the acrylic text and logo at regular intervals across the length of the hoarding. As the acrylics were fixed with locators, the lighting during the evening accentuated the depth between hoarding boards. The solar panels had to be positioned in a direction to maximise exposure to the sun.
Printed Hoarding Boards
The hoarding boards between the logo boards were traditionally printed using our AGFA workflow and flatbed printing presses. The site survey identified areas where the hoarding boards
In some areas the cut acrylic letters were added to tray signs. The tray signs were made from 3mm folded ACM with a return of 50mm. This not only increased the premium look of the hoarding but also meant that these could be repositioned and re-used in the future.

If we're designing the hoarding for you, we can advise at this point and offer suggestions of how your printed hoarding could look.
When designing yourself, you can render your artwork onto our CAD drawing to create accurate artwork. This will give you a true visual of how your hoarding will look with your design. It will give you a better idea of where to place logo's, text and images.
If we think your design needs to be amended we'll let you know. Our experience will make sure the end result is how you expect it to be!

Durable Printed hoarding, with exceptional print quality
We use only the best aluminium composite substrates for all our signage and hoarding, ensuring a durable solution. Anti-graffiti laminate can also be applied which not only protects but will enhance the graphic. We also print to a quality that reproduces your design with accurate colour reproduction using the much coveted AGFA workflow software.
Free Site Survey
We offer a free site survey to assess the area, take measurements and discuss the style of hoarding that is required. At this stage we would measure and assess the hoarding structure the graphics will be fixed to, and then record any variations in height that may affect the run of the graphics.
Creating artwork for hoarding
If you are designing the hoarding panels, we would submit a scale template for you to render your graphics on to. This will allow you to see exactly how your graphics will appear when the hoarding project is completed. Call Jamie Brelsford on 01270 625 207 to discuss in more detail.
Hoarding Design Styles
There are a number of different ways to present your graphics onto existing hoarding structure. A complete covering with anti-graffiti laminate and complete with header and kickers are the most popular, but you can reduce expenditure by using boards in a landscape orientation. This band of graphics is usually centred across the hoarding, and as long as the hoarding is painted, it will be perfectly adequate to get your message across.
Other examples include acrylic logo's and text to add depth to the design. Solar spotlights can add a little more attention to the site too.
We can always discuss your design ideas during the site survey, or by phone using images of the site. If you need us to help design your hoarding, our studio will work with you to go through the brief and present design ideas to scale.
What exactly are hoarding panels and why are they the best substrate for your hoarding project?
Most hoarding board is made from an Aluminium composite which is strong, lightweight and durable. We use aluminium composites such as Dibond and Alu-Panel.
Advantages Of Dibond Hoarding Panel
Strong and rigid
Lightweight and easy to handle - less stress on existing hoarding
UV resistant and can be used outdoors
Can be laminated with anti-graffiti laminate film
Easy to cut to shape where required
The panel sizes are 8ft x 4ft and a larger size of 10ft x 5ft. Although any size and shape can be cut from these sizes.
Can you use any other substrates on hoarding?
Whilst the short answer to this question is Yes, these are rare exceptions. We have used heavy weight banner material on existing timber hoarding in the past, but we feel that after a short time it will deteriorate and will not represent your project well over the long term. However, you may have a short term project where this might be appropriate.
We have also seen Foamex used on hoarding projects, and whilst there might be a small saving to be made, the long term look of your hoarding is compromised.
Heras Fencing is often used on the perimetres of sites and is not suitable for use with aluminium composite panels. We use mesh substrates such as the one below to create graphics for Heras or temporary fencing. See our article on Heras Fencing Covers here.
