THE MATERIAL OF CHOICE
FOR ZOO ENVIRONMENTS

DURABILITY GUARANTEE – TOUGH IN ALL CLIMATES – WATER AND WEATHER RESISTANT

DURABLE & ECO FRIENDLY

ALTO™ is a uniquely durable, eco-responsible and vibrant aluminum surface material used for custom SIGNS, PANELS and MURALS. 

Its unique ability to withstand hot and cold weather environments, humidity, marine atmospheres, extreme sun exposure and heavy traffic has made ALTO™ a trusted brand for zoos and aquariums across North America.

It can be found at the San Diego Zoo, Bronx Zoo, the Santa Barbara Zoo, the New York Aquarium, the Houston Zoo and many others.

Zoo signage does a lot more than point the way to the lions or the gift shop... 
We've perfected a material that responds to the needs of guests, the zoo and the environment.

FOR THE ZOO

ALTO™ is easy to install and easy to update for new exhibitions, zoo information

or activities. It’s also low maintenance and does not require harsh chemicals for cleaning, which makes it safe for animals, guests and staff.

FOR YOUR GUESTS

Hands-on treatment is expected, so ALTO™ won’t fade or rub off.  Sticky hands, a resting place for a diaper bag, something to lean on, ALTO™ can take it. Panels stay colorful and clear for years, ensuring guests get the full experience.

FOR THE EARTH

Put up signs that honor the conservation message.

Recycling aluminum saves 90% of the energy required to produce new metal. Our powder-coats and sublimation dyes are non-toxic and there are no chemical coatings.

TESTIMONIALS

Wendy Campbell talking about ALTO™

“The graphics we created for a new habitat at the Zoo were unlike any we’d done before and were intended to enhance the architect’s design. The perforated panels needed to be beautiful and strong, and ALTO™ delivered perfectly. The graphics are stunning and add an important visual element to the space.”

Wendy Campbell,
Creative/Brand Manager, Santa Barbara Zoo.
