Sign Trade Supplies Decro wood-effect Aluminium is now available

New Decro coatings for high-quality aesthetic effects are ready to order from the STS website

 Sign Trade Supplies (STS) has announced that its Decro range of Wood Grain-effect Aluminium and other Special Texture Coatings are fully available and ready to order from the website. 

The Decro coating mimics the look, the natural patterns, and the texture of wood, marble, stone, and Corten steel. It also adds a weather-resistant layer to improve the long-term durability and overall resilience of the aluminium profile or extrusion. 

Decro is ideal for use in architectural signage, wayfinding schemes, retail displays and interior fit-outs. 

Garrick Dartnell, Head of Marketing at Sign Trade Supplies, says, “We are really excited by this new product and are delighted that it is now fully available to order for fast delivery on our website. Decro is a unique product that delivers unlimited design possibilities when creating spaces that require a solid structure and foundation.”

He continues, “Aluminium is an incredibly flexible, durable and practical solution for many display applications. Its only real issue is that it looks like… well, Aluminium! If you want to make your display look great with the look and feel of more natural materials, like wood or marble, the solution until now has been to cover the post in a vinyl wrap. Decro is a simpler, more environmentally friendly, cheaper and, frankly, better looking, alternative.”

Reliable structures

Using Decro coated Aluminium products ensures dimensionally stable profiles that will not bend, warp or twist. Using real natural materials often results in a significant amount of wastage due to products like timber being open to size and shape variation, while Aluminium is ordered to size and weight.

Decro profiles can be up to 7.1m in length and a circumference up to 650mm. They are produced in a three-step process of cleaning, powder base-coat layer and then the final texture layer. This allows the product to offer an unprecedented range of finishes, such as oak, teak and mahogany.

Garrick concludes, “This is such an exciting product and after receiving huge amounts of pre-orders we are really pleased to be delivering to customers. There are so many options and possibilities with Decro and we would encourage you to take a look at the website or pick up the phone to have a chat about what this product can do for you and your customers.”
