Why are your prices so much cheaper?

All products are manufactured from raw materials without the need for outside help or sub contractors. We can make any speed sign system more cost effectively than competitors who buy everything in from someone else. There is no mystery, there is no catch.

Do you use cheap materials?

No. We are one of the only speed sign sites offering systems made from high quality welded aluminium. Compared to plastic or mild steel the materials we use are, in fact more expensive.
