5th Star have been installing and repairing signs for the last 10 years.

We have installed many of Brisbane’s and the Gold Coasts iconic sky signs.

Sky signs are the main figure head sign at the top of many Highrise buildings.

We became involved in this industry because of our irata trained and accredited abseiling electricians, carpenters and welders.

We can repair any illuminated sign weather it be neon or LED, we also subcontract to other signage and abseiling/industrial rope access companies and supply our qualified tradespeople.

We can install any sign in any practical place, we are one of the few sign installation businesses that have a building, carpentry and electrical contractors licence.

We also have a 14m truck mounted cherry picker that we use for sign installation, repairs and maintenance.
