ALTO Aluminum Durable & Eco Friendly Signs for Zoos

DURABLE &

ECO FRIENDLY

SIGNS - PANELS - MURALS

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 Bronx Zoo, New York Aquarium, Houston Zoo and 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

 "We have finished the inspection and post-painted assembly on the 4 projects… all looked great.  At the end of the 4 projects, we had over 2000 image panels with no rejects!".

Theme Park Client

"After printing using the ALTO™ product for the first time, I was completely impressed with the depth of colour, the texture, the precision and the durability. ALTO™ is the ultimate product for outdoor graphics."

Aniko Szabo,

Graphic Designer

"ALTO™ seems to be more vibrant  when it comes to the actual print. ALTO™ is very sturdy and its material strength can be advantageous when integrated into the construction of a node

vs. being only the

interpretive layer".
