Bespoke Solar Noticeboards for Harrow Council
Harrow Council identified a need for exterior illuminated noticeboards to promote community engagement within the borough. A key challenge was the capital cost, disruption and potential increase in their carbon footprint in providing mains power for illumination.

|Products used||Bespoke Eco-Vision Noticeboards|
As market leaders in solar powered noticeboards, Signscape and Signconex Limited (SASL) were invited by Harrow Council to tender for this project and were subsequently awarded the project to supply their Eco-Vison solar LED illuminated noticeboards. The award was influenced by SASL’s ability to design and manufacture the Solar signage in-house, together with the expertise to manage the project from design through to installation, providing the project on budget and at the most competitive price.
The project required working closely with Harrow Council to establish their specific requirements with some bespoke components such as a ‘Laser-cut’ header panels incorporating the Harrow Council Logo – internally illuminated by the same solar cells.
Eco-Vision is a solar-powered, LED illuminated display cabinet for external use. They are virtually maintenance-free, easy to install and have no running costs. Solar panels absorb daylight via the integrated photovoltaic solar panels which subsequently recharges an internal battery for use at night. The sign illuminates when approached, using its built-in movement sensor which conserves battery performance and life.
Eco-Vision noticeboards are made from premium and robust aluminium profiles offering superior weather and vandal resistance designs. They also feature an integrated weather shield and premium gas struts.
Signscape and Signconex Limited successfully installed Harrow Council’s new Solar Eco-Vision Noticeboards at 20 different locations overcoming the challenges of differing groundworks requirements. The project was successfully delivered on time and on budget.
