Site Safety Signs

Health and safety signs are present everywhere around the world, from schools, universities, workplaces, factories, construction sites to hospitals. These signs are easy to understand, even for people who do not speak English. They often contain simple symbols that are internationally recognised, such as the skull and crossbones that indicate a potentially deadly hazard or the flame that warns of a fire.

Their main purpose is to prevent accidents in public places and workplaces, provide information, and display warnings or prohibitions. During emergencies, health and safety signs are crucial for everyone to understand what to do, how to follow instructions, find evacuation routes, and locate the necessary fire protection and first aid equipment.

The size and font used in the signs should always be chosen according to the distance from which they have to be read, ensuring that the texts and pictograms are legible. Compliance with the regulations around these signs is also essential, as many of them have internationally recognized designs.

At Express Hoardings, we offer a comprehensive range of construction site site safety signs that adhere to current regulations. We provide access awareness signs, warning signs, fire safety signs, first aid signs, hazard signs, compulsory construction wear signs, and other information and prohibition signs like "no smoking" or "keep door shut.". Our use of colour ensures that those who cannot understand the language can understand the images. All our site safety signs are made of durable Correx boards and UV inks for longer lasting weathering. We offer both standard templates and custom designs to suit our clients' preferences and requirements.

Material Used

Choosing the right material for a site safety signs can be a complex task. To simplify things for you, we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions that will help you understand the benefits of Correx material.

What is Correx?

Correx is a type of extruded polypropylene sheet that is sold under a specific brand name. While it is sometimes referred to as corrugated plastic, it is different from corrugated cardboard in that it consists of a single piece with two flat surfaces and flutes, or open pipes, running through it. The thickness of Correx is determined by the size of these flutes.

What Material is Correx composed of?

Correx is manufactured using propylene ethylene copolymer, which is a type of corrugated plastic.

What is the manufacturing process of Correx?

The production process of Correx involves the use of a molten plastic material that is forced through a metal template or die. As the plastic material passes through the template, it cools down and solidifies into a continuous sheet. The sheet is later cut into individual boards which can be printed on.

Is there a difference between Correx, Corvex, Coriflute and Corrugated plastic sheets?

If you're confused about the similarities or differences between Correx, Corvex, Coriflute and corrugated plastic, don't worry. While these may seem like different products, they are all essentially the same thing: corrugated plastic sheets.

That being said, it's important to note that Correx is actually a brand name that has become so widespread that people use it as a generic term to describe any type of polypropylene fluted plastic sheeting. So, whether you're looking for Coriflute or Corvex, you're essentially looking for the same thing as Correx.

Is Correx recyclable?

Yes, Correx can be recycled and it belongs to the Waste stream 5 category.

Does Correx decompose naturally?

Although Correx cannot be classified as biodegradable, it will eventually decompose and fall apart with prolonged exposure to sunlight.

Does Correx have waterproof properties?

Correx is definitely 100% waterproof, making it an excellent option for temporary signs and outdoor advertising displays that require printing.

What is the temperature range that Correx can handle without melting?

The temperature at which Correx begins to soften is around 144 degrees Celsius and it will completely melt at 165 degrees Celsius.

Is Correx resistant to fire?

Ordinary Correx does not have fire-resistant properties. However, there are alternatives that offer flame-retardant capabilities. We recommend consulting with our team to explore these options further.

What is the strength of Correx?

Correx is an incredibly strong material that can withstand a significant amount of force. It's especially resistant to tearing or breaking when its thickness is 4mm or greater, making it highly durable for a wide range of applications. However, it should be noted that while it can be easily bent along the flutes, it's much more challenging to bend it across them.

What is Correx used for?

Correx, a corrugated plastic material, finds its applications in a broad spectrum of industries. The material's uses are determined by its thickness.

The 2mm-thick Correx variety, being the thinnest, is widely used in tray and packaging applications.

The 4mm version is the preferred choice of many printers for small outdoor signs and point of sale products that include stockist boards, safety signs, and bollard covers.

Thicker 6mm and 8mm Correx varieties find their use in creating larger signage, where their extra thickness adds to their strength.
