Xtream Signs was started in 1999 by Matt Porteous back when Matt thought “Xtream’ would be a good name for his fledgling sign company. Hey, it was the 90’s, he was young, he made a mistake, but that has nothing to do with our ability to create and install great signs. So lets move on…
Twenty something years later, Matt has acquired a vast wealth of technical and practical experience in modern sign making techniques. Plus he has gathered around him a small team of four with a collective 110 years of relevant and complimentary experience, plus equally experienced specialist contractors. All this collective experience can be applied at every stage of your project, beginning with Design; it’s not just what it looks like but what are the technical and practical requirements of your job? Let us worry about that.
At the manufacturing stage, we have the knowledge to enable us to choose the right structural techniques, cladding and print media for your specific location and requirements. Once production is complete, everything relies on careful and effective installation. This is where experience and maturity are vital. A damaged sign costs more than just money and time, it’s our reputation at stake too.
Health and Safety
Our health and safety procedures are first rate, mostly because of our regular work with Gull. Every time we enter a Gull station we run through a JSA (job safety analysis) identifying hazards and safety procedures, with all staff wearing flame retardant clothing.
We regularly work at height as well so our installers are fully trained and certified in the appropriate working at heights safety procedures. We have also recently completed a first aid refresher course.
One of our key points of difference is our in-house Elitron CNC Router. Having this means we can turn projects around much faster than if we had to outsource. It also gives us more options for output as the Elitron can cut such a wide range of media including ACM, acrylic, plywood, signex, paylite, cardboard, corflute and vinyl.
It will cut to depths of 50mm an sheets up to 3mtrs x 2 mtrs or vinyl off a roll. It can crease cardboard to varying widths and pressure as well as perforate. The CNC can also kiss cut adhesive stocks for stickers and labels which can be supplied as individuals, on sheets (of any size) or rolls.
