As we emerge from the final restrictions of the pandemic, many businesses are preparing to reopen fully for the first time in many months.
A duty of care to staff and customers has never been more important to companies, yet there’s one area that’s often overlooked. When premises are empty, or maintenance budgets reduced signage is left vulnerable to the elements and health and safety issues can be missed.
As a result, the risk of accidents is high just as businesses get ready to welcome customers back.
We’re here to help
As signage maintenance consultants, Cygnia ensures your signage is in full working order, ready for the return of your customers.

The consequences of not taking action can cause serious injury and irreparable damage to a business.
