New Rowmark Products for 2014  

We're excited to introduce new colors to some of our most popular Rowmark product lines, including ADA Alternative�, MetalGraph Plus�, ColorHues and Heavy Weights.


ADA Alternative�  
Introducing Deep Bronze and Orange as new products to our popular Rowmark ADA Alternative Appliqu� and Substrate� product line.

Rowmark's ADA Alternative� has been the premier material choice in the industry for tactile and ADA compliant sign-making applications for over 20 years. Not only has ADA Alternative� quickly become one of Rowmark's most popular product lines, but demand continues to rise today with the growth of the tactile and ADA signage market.


Go to ADA 

MetalGraph Plus� 

Introducing new Brushed Antique Gold/Gold & Brushed Stainless Steel/Silver as standard products in the MetalGraph Plus� product line.  

Aside from traditional engraving projects, MetalGraph Plus� has popularly become the cost effective, lightweight alternative for fabricating indoor/outdoor vector cut-out letters in place of real metal, brass or stainless steel. Offering this product line in the same cap and core color eliminates the need to paint the sheet edges for color consistency. Unlike other heavier, thicker materials, MetalGraph Plus� can also be easily cut with a CO2 laser or other comparable engraving equipment.


In response to the continued popularity of Rowmark's ColorHues™ product line and its increased use in tactile and ADA compliant sign-making, POP projects, gift applications and more, the following colors have been introduced:


Rowmark continues to closely monitor the latest color trends to meet the changing needs of the industry and offer the hottest products available to the market that will expand customers' design options for a growing range of visually dynamic projects.


Heavy Weights 
In response to the increasing demand for materials and color options for outdoor sign-making, marine and recreational applications, we are excited to add a variety of new three-ply products to the Heavy Weights™ line.

For the past decade, Rowmark has been offering our Heavy Weights™ products as a tough, thick gauge engravable sheet solution specifically designed to withstand the harshest outdoor elements. A heavy-gauge 3-ply polymer sheet with a textured surface, it is available in a bright palette of primary color combinations popularly used in high traffic areas, including Yellow/Black/Yellow as a NEW addition. Also, Heavy Weights™ Brown/White/Brown and Green/White/Green are now available in 1/4" thickness.
