Nova Aluminium are suppliers of aluminium systems including light boxes, flex face, soft signage, overhead lighting and way finding solutions.

Nova was formed in 2005 but can boast a wealth of experience in the supply of aluminium extrusions to the sign trade dating back to the early 1970s. Based in Bristol, we deliver nationwide to sign companies using our own fleet of transport.

Our systems include the ever popular acrylic faced light boxes, in both single and double sided formats. In 2 standard depths, there is an ideal solution for every application. Our 90mm section, NovaSlim, is no available as a screw free option, so is great for internal signage. Alongside this is NovaTex, and internal point of sale system utilising the “passive wedge” tensioning procedure, making it simple for retail staff to change the media in house. Available as illuminated options in 40mm, 65mm, 83mm and 100mm double sided, possibilities are endless. The frame is also available at 18mm deep.

Large flexable faced boxes are our forte here at Nova. NovaFlex is our unique full perimeter tensioning system that is suitable for boxes in all shapes and sizes, recent achievements using this system exceed 20m x 7m!! Working in conjunction with SignComp we have developed NovaComp, flexable faced signage using the black clip but with a completely flat perimeter. Available at depths of 135mm and 200mm, both with the option of illumination.

Overhead lighting is also available from Nova Aluminium by using NovaTube and NovaHood. Both at 80mm diameter and the NovaTube on fully adjustable brackets, comfortably illuminating 3000mm.

Wayfinding systems from Nova Aluminium, couldn’t be simpler. With a choice for 4 posts, including the recently added 125mm diameter round post, there are options for all applications. Standard planks are available at 100mm, 150mm and 200mm and we can fabricate bespoke panels to most sizes. Pole and Plank also allows for V shaped, triangular and monolith signs where required.

Our newest system is NovaGuide – ideal for aisle signage, but with an array of uses. The 40mm frame accepts a magnetic tape allowing the user to magnetically retain 5mm foam panels within the system for both single and double sided applications. The easy change facility is a hit with Signmakers and retailers alike!

Here at Nova we are always looking for new ideas to increase our suite of systems, the ideas often come from Sign Makers who have a project that they need help to achieve. All of our systems are designed by our team, so if you have an idea, no matter how small, we can help you to achieve it by developing the system with you.
