Here you will find the main production processes we use in the construction of our road traffic signs. The information and equipment below shows how Tennants UK makes top quality, reflective traffic and control signs. This page outlines the features and benefits of the three main systems we use - Printing, Cutting and Laminating.
All of Tennants printed traffic signs are made with the ORALITE® UV traffic sign printer using CE certified digital printing inks. This setup provides us with the ability to produce the very best quality prints possible.
Our traffic sign printer is based on the AGFA UV printer Anapurna M 2050 from Konica Minolta. It uses CE certified ORALITE® 5019 UV digital printing inks, which have been developed in cooperation with SunJet, a division of Sun Chemical, the world’s largest producer of printing inks and pigments.
We can print on all the ORALITE® retro-reflective films used for both temporary and permanent signs.
And all the films used for permanent signs are fully CE certified according to the Construction Projects Directive.
A comprehensive, worldwide service system ensures the performance and efficiency of the ORALITE® UV digital printing system for the manufacture of trafﬁc and control signs on the basis of ORALITE® retro-reflective films.
Tennants use the Zünd cutting system to cut many of its products including the majority of road signage, this helps to streamline the process and by cutting in-house it means your lead time estimates are more accurate.
