LC Signs joined the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning
On Friday 28th September, we held our very own Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan. Some of our keen home bakers had made scrumptious cakes and cookies which were thoroughly enjoyed by the whole team. The Star Baker badge was awarded to David in our Metal Dept for his mouth-watering ‘Blondies and Brownies’.
We raised a grand total of £111.20 for Macmillan.

Latest major project here at LC Signs was an 8.5 metre tall ‘T’ shape totem with 3.2 x 3.2 metre foot print.
The totem comprised 3 sections with 2 individual totems forming the shape of a ‘T’ with a stencil cut illuminated header roof section.
Then challenges we faced were to take our customers design intent and find a way to make it buildable and simple to install with a 3mm site tolerance. Our design required our customers structural Engineer to approve our proposal.
The 3mm tolerance was overcome by using slotted base plates, welding the frame up as one item and then separating the three individual items for each to be clad.
One of the surprising factors of a sign this size is how much the 200 x 200 x 10mm steel sections can still flex once they have been welded into a frame causing issues with panel alignment during construction and which doesn’t occur once the totem is installed.
Everything went well and we look out for the next challenge.
