Protecting schools from metal thieves

Signature Materials has been asked to look at marking copper lightning conductors and lead sheets found on older school buildings. A school, in Greater Manchester is likely to have lead and copper marked in the Spring by Signature Materials as the first part of a trial on school buildings.As well as the metal, signage will  be placed around the site, and local press notified re the work and what to look out for.

If you have been affected or know of a school or public building, house, business premises at risk we may be able to help. Our marking is overt in nature, in that it can be clearly seen by potential thieves, and anybody caught with marked metal will be asked to prove how they came about it. At the very least they will be arrested fror handling stolen goods.
