Don’t Look Down: We Install High-Flying Signs at Whatley Quarry

Posted on: May 23, 2019

If you install signs for a living, you’re going to need a head for heights. As if we didn’t know this already, we got a reminder in our recent work at Whatley Quarry, where some signage was needed at some nail-biting altitudes.

We’ve been working at Whatley Quarry for a little while now. A few months ago, we blogged about our Phase 1 site signage. That involved installing the first way-finding signs for the site.

The quarry is run by Hanson, one of the best known names in aggregates. Whatley has been supplying aggregates to the massive Hinkley Point C power station project. Not surprisingly, it’s an extremely busy site — so clear signage has a key role  in keeping everyone safe.

In our most recent visit, we moved onto Phase 3 of the project. We installed a variety of signs, including additional way-finding signage:

Our Phase 3 signage also required some hydraulic lift power to install the highest signs:

The van in the first picture gives some idea of scale — as you can see, those signs are a long way up! Fortunately, the Mirage team are old hands at installing signs in all sorts of places (and in all sorts of conditions), so everything went smoothly.

Mirage Signs carry out a lot of work at construction and similar sites. In fact Whatley is not our first quarry, as we were commissioned by The Hills Group to install signs at Mortimer Quarry in Berkshire.

If your construction site or quarry needs high-quality signage, please get in touch. Mirage Signs Ltd design, produce and install a huge range of signage for the construction, industrial and extractive sectors.
