We first removed the existing signage by unscrewing the nuts, and grinder off 3 of the 4 existing screw threads already in place. This is because the new signage’s hole positions are different. Notice we left one screw thread untouched. This thread will serve as a reference point for the 3 new holes.
Next, we place the new signage onto the existing screw thread, and marked out the positions for the 3 new holes and drilled them out. To prevent the surface from cracks, the drilling process should be done slowly.
The 3 new screw threads are hammered into place. Ensure that they are all of the same height and thickness before doing so, and use the driller to enlarge the hole if necessary to facilitate the hammering process.
Finally, put the new signage in place and screw tightly. This item has a 5mm thick stainless steel 304 top plate with non directional finishing and chemical etching with pantone-coded coloured fill paints. Able to withstand outdoor elements with ease, our signage solutions are rarely replaced due to their superior durability. If this signage was to be used near the sea instead, a higher grade of stainless steel (316) would’ve been used instead, in view of the higher salinity levels. The previous signage was done by another contractor using some form of printing, and can be seen from the photo below that certain areas have already started to fade off.
