Interpretation Panels

We design, build and install interpretation panels for external and internal use.

All our interpretation panels are hand-made. We provide the concept, design, manufacture and installation.


The frames for our outdoor panels are made from either wood (Oak or softwood) or metal (steel or aluminium); our indoor panels come in a range of hard or softwoods.

Our panels can be wall mounted or free standing on legs (lectern or vertically).

Graphic Panel Design

We design full scale interpretation panels and smaller plaques (or mini interpretation panels). Typically 100mm wide mini interpretation panels are ideally suited to locations where physical but unobtrusive location-based interpretation is required. Their narrow width enables them to be attached to existing countryside furniture wooden gate and finger posts. The plaques provide a bitesize piece of interpretative content and are often combined with a URL, QR code and/or NFC tag so that users can access further (online) content. Read our Evolution of the QR code blog to discover how panels that ‘Go Digital’ can enhance the visitor experience.
