By leaving the negative space around logos and letters open we are usually able to double the letter size and still comply to the same surface area restrictions. We calculate the surface area with our design / cad software for accuracy.
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.
Nothing is more irritating than only having half of your sign light up with the most inconvenient letters missing. Our signs incorporate either Gelcore or Sloan quality LED’s and power supplies with a half life of 50,000 hours. That’s almost 6 years of non stop use and much longer if the sign is on a
timer or sensor.
