Some of our external notice boards are designed to be mounted on the side of a building, while others are freestanding. The choice is yours!





No. 1 for Community Engagement

From its professional look to its eye-catching visibility in public spaces, an outdoor notice board has many benefits. A high-quality, aluminium outdoor notice board is always a good way to go when you’re trying out different ways of advertising to your community.



Community Notice Board

Advertisements for businesses and events, and even “for sale” posters can all use space in a community outdoor notice. Individuals and local businesses alike can advertise effectively on an external notice board. From restaurants that want to advertise their newest offers to other upcoming events like community classes in karate or knitting, outdoor notice boards are a popular way for communities to share messages with each other and often end up brimming with exciting messages.

A bright, smart and clean outdoor notice board, with so many people passing by, can really catch the attention of the public. Many businesses, schools and community halls would be lost without their external notice boards.

Looking into outdoor notice boards is always a good way to go when you’re trying out different ways of advertising in your community. If you want to restrict access and prevent people from hanging unauthorised notices, a tamperproof notice board is the right choice for you. These are supplied with key locks for ease of use and to secure your notices. Of course, locking is not mandatory, so if you don’t need users to request permission before using the board, simply don’t lock them out!

No. 1 for Schools

It can be really difficult for school management to keep parents informed about happenings inside the school while managing so many individual students every day. External notice boards are a great way of making sure you’re achieving this. The sense of community an external notice board can promote is one of its primary advantages, and this is especially important for schools. Your school community can keep your notice board looking healthy by filling it with messages and information for students and their parents.

Top Tip: Which Way Is Up?

While rotating the board you already have rather than simply buying one in the correct orientation might seem like a no-brainer, you’ll save a lot of time and effort in the long-run by simply buying a new notice board. Unless they’re located in the correct area of the display, design features like drainage holes – which are present in some outdoor notice boards – will not be able to carry out their function.
