Beckton Illuminated Architectural Signage

Beckton Station is part of the Docklands Light Railway (DLR). The DLR opened in 1987, and is an automated metro train system with 40 stations. The station recently underwent an enhancement project. Part of this project involved creating and installing new illuminated letters and a new architectural DLR roundel.

Links Signs fabricated the illuminated letters from stainless steel, mounting them to a hinging stand for ease of maintenance. The support frame was fabricated from mild steel which was hot dipped galvanised and then completed with a powder coated finish.

The post mounted roundel was fabricated from a 3.5m stainless steel post with a large internally illuminated DLR logo fixed to the top. The roundel is shaped stainless steel with powder coating to the outside edges. The faces were made up of 5mm perspex with applied translucent vinyl to ensure correct brand colours. We then illuminated them with LEDs for long lasting life and low maintenance costs.
