New Mersey Glows again with Sign Maintenance UK

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

Sign Maintenance UK, part of the Signworld Group of companies, are a UK based signage manufacturing company with over 20 years of industry experience working with the largest brands from all sectors. Providing a comprehensive service to the sign industry, from sign installation, sign maintenance, sign servicing, sign repair and sign renovation, all of which is executed by the most highly qualified sign engineers within the industry.

Sign Maintenance UK, the Signworld maintenance division, were recently contacted by New Mersey Retail Park on Speke Road in Liverpool. Their large flagship totem signs were suffering from broken neon lighting and needed urgent repairs carrying out immediately. Sign Maintenance UK sent out a team of experienced and skilled PASMA and IPAF certified engineers in minus 15°C temperatures, with specialist access equipment to reach the tall signage and begin the repair and cleaning programme.

Work consisted of; immediately making safe all the damaged electrical elements, removing all giant 3D built-up letters, removing all the internal neon signage, fitting economic energy saving LED’s and refitting letters to look like new. Each letter was also recoated with protective paint. The team had to work with the large structure from within and replace all of the electrical components to ensure longer life following Sign Maintenance UK’s visit. Each letter uses LED lighting to glow from within and also to create a ‘halo’ effect around the letter. This effect helps create fantastic glowing letters that can be seen from far around while still saving energy.

As you can see from the photo’s below, the finished effect is stunning. The cool icey blue glow of the ‘New Mersey’ letters offset against the warm firey light of the ‘B&Q’ letters works wonderfully.
