Events in world history both large and small have traditionally been preserved or remembered by the unveiling of a plaque.  Symbolic to the memory of the event, the plaque should also be able to stand the test of time.

Plaques can be found in heritage sites, on houses, around the National Trust estates and anywhere that something important wants to be remembered.

Cast aluminium plaques (which are the modern equivalent to cast iron plaques) are used when you want a casting which is painted.  Usually a bare metal cast plaque would be a bronze plaque.

Whether you would like to design your own, or give us the details and have our artwork team draft it for you, modern computer based designs and traditional plaque maker techniques are combined to produce a piece that will dignify the occasion or person in a fine way.

Upon design completion, the pattern is manufactured in the factory and given to our foundry.  The foundry uses the sand casting method on the pattern to produce a mould which then in turn is used to set your design in solid metal.

Although being a more costly material, Aluminium is used as a modern alternative to Iron because its qualities make for better defined plaques; also the lower melting temperature allows the casting to be made more energy efficiently.  Iron is disposed to rust and is rarely ever used for castings in the present day because Aluminium is largely recognised as being the appropriate medium by the sign making industry.
