Weatherproof Foamex Boards can be used as outdoor signage. They are durable and can be wiped clean. They are also used indoors in area where you need extra durability. They can be wiped clean, are lightweight and look professional.
Printing is clear and crisp and they will showcase text, graphics and photography.
Here at Manual printers we offer a more durable alternative to our Full-Colour Posters – the trustworthy Weatherproof Foamex Board. If you are looking for a semi-permanent solution for signage then Foamex is the right solution for you. Foamex is less permanent than our DiBond material that we offer and more permanent that our Correx material, however, is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
All of our Foamex Boards are printed digitally onto a self-adhesive material and then applied to your desired thickness of board. This is to ensure the best possible print. After the product is trimmed you cannot notice the self-adhesive vinyl
Choose from a 3mm thickness or a 5mm thickness. If you are looking for thicker options, talk to one of our supervisors by using the online chat
We trim each board to your required size
Our Foamex Boards are lightweight and easy to install
Because Foamex is a flexible and durable material, it can be stuck, screwed, nailed or riveted to any suitable surface
Our boards are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use
M1/B1 fire-rated to comply with UK and European fire safety standards
