Vitreous enamelling is an exceptionally durable surface finish that withstands all the elements, is easy to maintain and boasts excellent longevity.
A vitreous enamel surface finish is achieved by fusing glass particles to sheet metal or cast iron by firing it at a temperature in excess of 800°C. The result is a surface that is incredibly hardwearing to all the elements, is temperature resistant (up to 800°C) and chemical resistant with exceptional colour stability.
The finished enamelled product is easy to maintain, clean and hygienic, meaning it can be used for many applications internally and externally.
Our vitreous enamel is available in a wide range of colours, with screen printed graphics (block and 4 colour photographic images). Our designteam once again has no limits with this product, the ability to reproduce graphics to any level of detail.
Graffiti can be easily removed using solvents, without affecting the graphics or enamel and its these unique qualities that makes vitreous enamel an ideal application for any high specification sign project.
A more cost effective solution with a similar look and feel is a more standard stove enamelling process. Using alloy or stainless steel plate, the background is stove enamelled, images applied with cast vinyls or screen printed and the surface over lacquered and baked with a street tough finish, which is polished to give depth. This product is again extremely durable but is slightly more vulnerable to scratching.
We recently supplied and installed internal and external signage for the newly refurbished Clare House Surgery, a local Tiverton doctor’s surgery.
Clare House was built in 1816 and our sleek signage brought a modern twist to the historical building.
The client was thrilled with the result! They said:
‘Clare House Surgery are pleased to be associated with Ken White Signs. Not only has the firm produced high quality interior and exterior signage for our new Surgery extension and refurbishment, but their customer care has been efficient and exemplary’
Ken White Signs are both delighted and humbled to announce our involvement in the upcoming Chloe Carter’s Fight on Cancer Celebration night. Taking place at Muddiford Court this coming 15th November, the ‘Glamorous Ladies and Black Tie’ themed event looks set to be a truly heart warming night bringing phenomenal aid to those struck by the perils of Cancer in their youth. The Fight on Cancer fundraiser is the product of young Chloe Carter’s bravery and personal experience battling Stage 2 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma which led to her undergoing intensive chemotherapy and surgery to remove the insidious lumps from her neck.
Now recovering with an optimistic look to the future, Chloe is aiming to raise money for her local Paediatric Ward and CLIC Sergeant who have both contributed massively to her recovery these past months. When Chloe’s mother and grandfather approached us here at Ken White Sign’s for our assistance we felt an immediate need to help however we can and have since worked closely with the family to help promote and design the event ahead of its November launch.
Having already been partnered in business with Muddiford Court in the past, the whole project has been a very co-operative experience which looks set to be a huge success for Chloe, her charities and all her supporters. Our very own Ben White, speaking of our involvement had this to say “It was great to meet with Sue and Alan in our offices on a couple of occasions. Hearing an account of Chloe’s journey from their perspective was so heartwarming and straight away I wanted to help in any way I possibly could”.
Directors Chris and Simon White are doing a bungee jump on Sunday 9th November 2014 in memory of their mum Jean. All money raised will be going to Hospiscare.
The bungee jump was given to Chris and Simon from their brother Ben White as a ‘Best Man’ gift at his wedding December 2013. They thought it would be a great opportunity to raise money for a charity which is very close to their hearts.
Their mum (Jean) was diagnosed with Mesothelioma (a cancer caused by exposure to Asbestos) 6 years ago. In 2010 Jean was admitted to a Hospiscare Unit and they looked after her through a very difficult time and gave her and the family so much support. The family have decided to take this opportunity to do something in memory of their mum and at the same time give something back to the local Hospiscare unit based in Tiverton
