As the pioneers of specialist Golf Course Signage, Eagle holds the key to the right materials.
There are many different mount options to choose from and the selection is governed by your club’s environment, budget and taste, to name a few factors. Our personnel are ideally positioned to consult you when creating a solution for your club’s signage.
Iroko is a hardwood from West Africa. It is a very dense and durable timber which is kiln dried to reduce the moisture content to below 10.8%. This ensures a stable reaction when used in an outdoor environment. All Hardwood provided by Eagle is of the highest quality and stained and protected with Teknos products which is a water based stain and timber protective product. The initial coating from the factory will ensure that the timber lasts over two years.
Maintenance – Aquaprimer and Aquatop products are available from Eagle in 1, 3 & 20 litre cans. At least once per year all coatings should be washed with mild detergent and water to remove any surface pollution.
EaglePlex is a recycled polymer timber that can be relied on to outperform all competition. Eagle guarantee to provide a realistic, durable and affordable option to natural timber which is totally maintenance free. EaglePlex combines strength, stiffness and toughness and is ideal for challenging environments where durability is important. It’s a highly engineered material, rigorously tested and refined to give maximum performance. The surface finish is knot free, evenly coloured and has a very realistic textured timber-like finish.
Eagle’s Consolidated Lumber is crafted using a composite, designed for outdoor conditions. Made from a rigid polyurethane (PUR), the textured top surface creates a resilient, virtually maintenance-free layer.
Beneath this durable top layer lies a wood-free polymer resin core, reinforced with fibre for extra strength and durability. This means that it won’t expand or contract, warp or rot, like timber or composites made using wood.
This is an innovative product that is also eco-friendly and is the first signage product in the world to have an independently verified carbon footprint. Consolidated lumber is made in Britain, which means it has been tried and tested in all weather conditions.
*No trees were harmed in manufacturing
When you install Consolidated Lumber, it’s not just beautiful outdoor signage you are investing in, you are also investing in a low carbon material.
We set out to replicate the beauty of wood and natural timber without all the flaws of a natural product and by doing so, we have produced premium wood-free outdoor signage which is manufactured using the least amount energy and carbons possible.
● The unique PUR layer resists scratches and stains and is designed to withstand demanding outdoor environments.
● The structural core is a blend of natural minerals bonded in a polymer resin with long fibre reinforcement for added strength and durability.
● Consolidated Lumber is solid, not hollow, meaning it’s strong and won’t warp, rot like wood, or harbour insects and pests.
● Consolidated Lumber is wood-free and non-porous, which means high resistance to algae growth and excellent anti-slip properties.
● The dual-tone PUR surface is hand tinted using pigments designed to resist fading and sun damage.
● Our unique ‘cellular’ internal structure reduces weight while maintaining strength.
At Eagle we like to use natural resources whenever possible. The ideal solution is to create a sign system that has a natural appearance that a stranger is unable to distinguish from nature itself. Natural hewn rock if available on or near to the course, used as a mount for a cast bronze plaque can be a very effective solution. At Eagle’s foundry we can cast collars into the reverse of each plaque enabling easy fixing to natural rock.
Some golf course environments suit a stone based system, such as The Old Course at St. Andrews, The Home of Golf. Flexibility is the key, Eagle has developed a sandstone compound that can be shaped into natural looking boulders, pedestals and monoliths. Recesses are built into each rock to match the chosen size of plaque are made at the manufacturing stage.
