Swinging Signs Information

The standard size of our swinging signs is 45 cm x 60 cm. These measurements will vary depending on the design chosen, the text required, and can be portait or landscape. Please contact us for a quote if you would like a different size, smaller or larger. As with our weathervanes, we can produce bespoke designs for a swinging sign based on any theme, generally for no extra charge for a farm, business or home. A wonderful personalised house warming gift or wedding present for a loved one!

Our swinging signs are drawn by a professional designer at Black Fox Metalcraft in our workshop in the Scottish Borders, and cut using the most up to date laser technology. Designs are cut from 3 mm thick mild steel, and electroplated to protect against rust. They are heavy duty and built to last - our large signs weigh around 15 kilos.

A standard bracket with hand forged scroll is included in the price. These are suitable for mounting to a vertical surface such as a wall or post. Each swinging sign is joined to its chosen bracket with heavy duty links, using stainless steel bolts andlocking nuts (which we provide).  Signs can be fixed in place with a matching bracket beneath - this is sometimes a preferred option for very windy locations. See picture below. We are happy to produce custom brackets to your specification - please contact us to discuss your requirements. Fixing bolts are not included as requirements will vary depending on application.

All of our swinging signs are electroplated to prevent rusting, and finished in a matt black powder coat, baked on at 170 degrees. The text is carefully painted by hand in ivory cream. Please enter the text required in the comments box at checkout. As standard, a 'Times New Roman' style font is used, but we are happy to use pretty much any other typeface if required, please just let us know. For a more crisp, corporate look, we can also apply text using vinyl lettering - please contact us if this is your preference. Up to two lines of text are included in the price - if your house or farm name requires more space than this contact us for a price. Please allow four weeks for the delivery of your Black Fox Metalcraft swinging sign.
