Innovation – The Sign’Lab

The Sign’Lab

Semios’ innovation platform

Semios Sign’Lab is a collaborative innovation laboratory. Semios’ 150 employees are invited to suggest new ideas and participate in the various workshops offered throughout the year.

The aim of Sign’Lab is to:

  • Propose solutions with high added value

Self-powered solutions

Semios’ Sign’Lab has developed and tested a range of standard and customised solar-powered totems and signs that are now available on the market.


A fully self-powered solution

  • Electricity generated solely by the solar panel and stored in a battery
  • No power connection so no trenching required!
  • Programmable and customisable operating schedules
  • Low maintenance (twice yearly cleaning is sufficient)

A precise study of the on-site location is carried out to identify the best solution for your needs. The study takes into account your geographical location and the orientation of your self-powered solution.

Recyclable or recycled solutions

Sign’Lab has tested, developed and now markets a new 100% recyclable material made from rice husk which is adapted to the signage, advertising and decoration business.
Rice husk has been identified as an ecological alternative with extremely interesting properties and potential for our business!

This natural and durable fibre product is made up of 60% rice husk (food industry waste), 22% rock salt and 18% mineral oil.
