Our lit profile signs are engineered specifically for use on tower cranes. We have fine tuned our fabrication process and have a product which is light, bright, and durable. We start with design in order to develop a solution which has excellent contrast and visibility and takes full advantage of the surface area allowed for you particular crane.
Lit profile signs are internally lit individual letters on a composite aluminum backer and custom aluminum frame unlike large and heavy raceways used on typical channel letter signs. Our LEDs are IP44 wet rated with a 50k hour half life. We solder every connection, carefully route every wire, and ensure a water tight finish on every sign - we understand that no one wants to repair a sign 300’ in the air. Power supplies are mounted inside custom water tight enclosure which can be mounted up to 10’ from the sign which allows for easy and safe maintenance.
Using welded aluminum tubing as a support structure instead of a larger solid raceway or backing we not only achieve a larger size but a very light weight ratio with a 42″ x 140″ sign coming in at around 120 lbs.
Mesh banners are an economical solution which is typically restricted to a smaller size but great for temporary signage.
”"Thank you so much for helping us find a signage solution for tower cranes on our project sites. Your product design provides better visibility than traditional signage options we have tried, such as banners and light boxes. While I haven't seen the signs on our Louisville Arena project for myself, I have heard nothing but good things.
I appreciated the various alternatives you presented as we were finalizing the signage design. Although it took me a while to decide exactly what I wanted, you patiently offered suggestions and solutions, which helped build my confidence in your expertise.
Finally, I can't say enough about my experience working with you. I appreciated your responsiveness, your "can-do" attitude, and your ability to deliver on a tight deadline. It's been a pleasure working with you and I have recommended your product as a company wide solution for Mortenson tower crane signs."”

”“Tower Crane Signs was a pleasure to work with! Since this was the first tower crane sign our company had purchased, we had many questions regarding sizing, lighting, etc. Brian and his team were quick to put together several mock-ups to help us visualize what our completed sign would look like. Once we selected the right sign for our site, delivery and follow up was prompt. Thanks for the great service!””

”“I worked with Tower Crane Signs on the 1015 Half Street Project in Washington DC; a 420,000 sqft speculative office development for Opus East L.L.C.
I worked directly with Brian Stoddard. Brian responded quickly to the signage RFP. We needed the signs as soon as possible; Northwest Wholesale Signs were able to fabricate and deliver them from Seattle, WA to Washington DC in 3 weeks. The signs have great visibility and were easy to install. I would highly recommend them for any project signage."”
