'LOOK' ... Totems at St Thomas' Hospital

As the contracted sign supplier  for Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust,  Tara Signs were asked us to review the existing signs at the three main entrance points around St Thomas’ Hospital.  They were looking tired, outdated and unprofessional after previous sign suppliers’ attempts to amend information.

The requirements for the new signs were clear; they would contain more information and have the facility to be easily updated when things change. Brand prominence for the Trust and their partners were paramount, incorporated into eye catching, robust and interchangeable signs within the agreed budget. This included applying for the required advertising (planning) consent for the signs, arranging logistics and carrying out the installation.

Phil Shelley, in our sales team, researched and selected “LOOK”, a specially designed versatile totem sign system.  This system uses an extruded aluminium framework with AA25 anodised brushed stainless steel finish. A variety of sign panels can be used in the system, including acrylic & glass for illuminated signs, and Aluminium, ACM and Vitreous Enamel for non- illuminated signs. We chose 3mm aluminium fabricated tray panels for flexibility and durability. Each panel is powder coated, has the graphics applied and is finished with an anti graffiti coating, they then slide into place in the frame.

The LOOK system is flexible and adaptable in terms of size, height and content, construction is quick, routine and straight forward. There is limited time in the drawing office, no custom fabrication and the components are off the shelf. In simple terms, the signs are built quickly, precisely and cost effectively, something that was important to the Trust.

The results are clear to see, the signs are elegant, striking, robust and flexible, all the Trusts requirements were met and we were able to deliver a successful implementation.
