Among the most popular types of lettering for company establishments today is channel sign letters and projected signs. These letters are the neon letters that are prominently seen in organization facilities and mall that effectively bring in consumers to their service.
These signs are generally extruded metal structures that feature plastic faces, where its internal part is filled with neon lighting. The metal structures used in these letters are typically made from aluminum or steel. Of the 2, aluminum costs a bit more than steel letters.
Aluminum is lighter and does not rust
Nevertheless, although expensive, aluminum letters never rust while steel letters tend to rust. This rust will then cause stain damage to the surrounding wall and roofing area of the business. Moreover, aluminum letters are lighter than steel and can be set up using fewer mounting fixtures.
The built channel light is then installed with neon glass based on specs after which the colored letter face is connected to the letter front. Private letters are then wired to a transformer that is in the raceway or behind the wall according to the chosen installing technique.
Different mounting methods for your projected signs
There are 2 methods to install channel sign letters; they can either be installed separately, directly on the wall or installed upon a rectangle-shaped shaped sort of box called a raceway. Of the 2, the separately mounted letters look, in the opinion of many people, better than the raceway installed kind of letters in your projected signs.
When separately mounting letters, the mounting pattern is very first laid on the storefront and then holes are drilled for both hanging letters and running electrical energy. This form of setup costs more as it takes more time to install than raceway mounting.
Raceway mounting is usually done in the factory where each letter is pre-spaced and after that installed on the raceway. This makes it simple to install the lettering as the raceway, and not the individual letters have to be mounted and wired to the wall.
