Links Signs has deployed Drytac Polar Grip to create a series of eye-catching displays at five London Underground stations celebrating the Euro 2020 football tournament. The family-run wide-format business was approached by Transport for London (TfL) to produce the graphics, which were installed at King’s Cross, Paddington, Baker Street, London Bridge and Wembley Park.

With several matches, including the semi-finals and final, taking place in the capital, TfL wanted the signs to be ‘innovative and attention-grabbing graphics that provided unique photo opportunities for fans.’ All the graphics were printed on Drytac Polar Grip polymeric self-adhesive vinyl, paired with Drytac Interlam Pro Emerytex which is fully approved by TfL and carries all the required fire and slip certifications and ratings for public spaces. They were printed using Links Signs’ HP Latex 570, installed 18 months ago, and installed over a period of five nights prior to the start of the tournament on June 11.

Paul Cox, operations manager at Link Signs, said Drytac Polar Grip was the ideal solution for the job as it is approved for use in projects on the London Underground, adding that the product delivered outstanding results across the series of graphics. ‘When working on projects for London Underground, we cannot use any materials that are not approved,’ he explained. ‘Drytac is not only approved, but also an incredibly stable and reliable product that can be easily applied. We really liked working with the Drytac vinyl; it delivered exactly what it promised, and we will be looking to work with it on other projects we produce for TfL.’
