The Edgy Frame

Our paint sprayer has been hard at work with the R&D team to update some of the painted products. As it’s essential to continually improve on what we have created before. One product that we have worked on is that of our painted, framed Tricoya, now with a new edge.

What is Tricoya

Tricoya isn’t a timber that many people have heard of but it is one we have worked with very successfully. Its a wood base board material made using a high performance resin. One of the main benefits of this material is that it is very stable, strong, durable and virtually rot-proof. In fact the timber itself comes with a 50 year guarantee. An added bonus is that its environmentally friendly. So all round it wins in many categories and is great alternative to some traditional timbers. The only thing to be aware of is that it does need to be painted, the timber itself is not the prettiest when left natural but with a lick of paint looks beautiful.

The new edge

Previously these signs were just painted boards as shown in the photographs below. However we have now added a frame with an edge, The frame is 30mm thick and is usually painted the same colour as the board itself. However, that doesn’t mean you are restricted to this, in fact Thorne Farm shows how two colours can work effectively. There are further choices when it comes to the edge itself. You can either have a chamfered edge like the one on the ‘Sherwood’ sign, or choose to have it squared edged.
