Signs Express recommended using a flex-face system allowing the Studios to replace the interior skin whilst keeping the frame intact when any future need arises to promote a new film, series or commercial. The sign itself needed to be 8 metres x 6 metres and specifically positioned on the wall of Studio 9, high enough to be seen from the neighbouring Tesco car park creating maximum impact. IPAF certificated and experienced in installations of this nature, a four man installation crew from Signs Express Harlow completed the fit. Working simultaneously from 2 mobile access platforms they first fixed the frame, piece by piece in its precise location, then securing the printed skin into place with specialist fixings.
