Rail Signage

Design, manufacture & installation for the UK's largest infrastructure projects

Design capabilities

Merson have in-house capability to carry out all of the design work required for a successful Railway signage project.

Our dedicated team of Wayfinding signage designers can be introduced at the beginning of a project to develop the sign schedules, before engaging our Technical Designers to bring the signage to life using the latest CAD design programmes. We design signage with the finished product in mind, addressing the key interfaces and thus reducing risk during installation.

We are conversant with all UK Train Operating Companies’ design standards and therefore all of our technical and graphic designs are compliant in terms of material and colour specifications.

Capability

We can manufacture all types of Railway signage in-house across our three manufacturing facilities. Our dedicated Infrastructure production line can respond to urgent requests with short lead-in times and our fleet can deliver them across the UK.

All rail project operatives are PTS-certified and so able to work in all areas, including Trackside. We have a consistent in-house installation resource for Railway signage and therefore do not subcontract installation work.

COMPLIANCE

We are an approved contractor on RISQS, the national procurement register for the Rail industry.

Having worked with Network Rail on numerous station projects, including those with complex stakeholder relationships, we are well-versed in the compliance practices involved. We have dedicated staff members to ensure that all materials are approved prior to installation and that all required paperwork is completed to a high standard ahead of project handover.

We have also worked with English Heritage on a number of rail projects on listed buildings, including the rebrand of Kings Cross St Pancras Station. Many stations are listed buildings and we ensure our signage products are compliant with this.
