Entrance/Ladder Sign Maintenance & Installation

Your entrance/ladder sign is treated with Rubio Monocoat Woodcream to give protection from the elements. It allows the wood to age naturally (it will grey with age), but protects it and makes it water-repellent.

The pearl effect (water-beading) will gradually diminish and treatment will be required, depending on the weather your sign is subjected to.

Instructions to apply a new layer of Rubio Monocoat woodcream if the beading effect has diminished.

STEP 1.Clean the surface by using water at low pressure and a soft brush; there is no need for sanding. 

STEP 2. Apply the pre-mixed woodcream with softener carefully and evenly to the surface with a brush suitable for water-beading products, in the direction of the wood. Work in zones in the direction of the wood fibre. Spread out the product in one go with the application brush. 

Instructions for using Rubio Monocoat exterior soap spray, to clean and nourish the timber.

Step 1. Wet your sign.

Step 2. Shake the bottle, to mix the contents thoroughly.

Step 3. Spray the product on the surface.

Step 4. Clean with a floor cloth or fluff-free duster.


Fix your entrance/ladder sign into the ground with your preferred method. Stake posts or post holders are the easiest to remove in the future.

If installing straight into the ground/earth further treatment processes may be required, we recommend Bitumen paint for this. This may also be required if using post holders as water can ‘sit’ in the bottom of the post/stake holders.
