Installation Hardware

strap Mount

Strap Mount:

Thin metal straps slightly recessed into back and soldered to return. Stud boss soldered to strap to receive threaded studs. The strap helps strengthen returns of letter. This is the default mounting method for fabricated letters. Not for use with LED lighting systems as shadowing may occur.

 

side mount

Side Mount:

Stainless "L" bracket with holes and bosses to receive threaded studs is glued to inside return. Due to bracket size, a minimum 6" high and 1" deep letter is required.

shadow free mount

Shadow Free Stud:

Metal stud blocks glued to inside of can. Threaded to receive 10-24 studs. Available on letters up to 12" high. Letters greater than 12" use strap mount placed against face to achieve the same shadow free effect. Smaller letters could also use this mount to receive pads with studs for a flush pad mount.

lexan back mount

Lexan Back:

Lexan backs are laser cut to fit within the inside of the return. This is not a perfect"puzzle" fit–but is close. "L" brackets are glued to the inside return of the can. The lexan is attached to the "L" bracket with stainless flat head screws. 6"-24" high letters use .118" thick lexan. Above 24" use .236" lexan. Lexan is not perfectly flush to back of letter. Holes are drilled through lexan to allow for mounting studs into "L" brackets.

steel back mount Steel Back:

Steel backs are laser cut to fit within the inside of the return. This is not a perfect"puzzle" fit–but is close. "L" brackets are glued to the inside return of the can. The steel is attached to the "L" bracket in 1 of 2 ways: 1. Loose tacked (welded) which is not removable. 2. Holes drilled through steel to allow for pan head screw into "L" bracket. Both methods have holes drilled for mounting studs. Backs are available raw, finished or painted steel.
can mount

Removable Can for LED:

Image shown with optional LEDs. Same rules and construction as lexan back with the exception of the "L" brackets. "L" brackets are held in place with removable pan head screws (not glued). Side screws pass through holes that are drilled into returns. When lighting with LEDs the can must be removable from the lexan. LEDs are attached to inside of lexan back.

Note: Painting inside of can for optimal LED reflectivity is an additional 10%.

bottom mount

Bottom Stud:

Metal "L" bracket glued to inside of face& return. Holes and bosses in bottom/top to receive threaded studs. Due to bracket size a minimum 6" high, 1" deep letter is required. Letters over 12" will require our "Engineered Stud". Rounded letters will require some flattening. Pricing includes a
lexan or steel back.

Engineered Stud:
Metal "L" bracket glued to inside of face & return. Holes and bosses in bottom/ top to receive threaded studs. Letters 12"-24 require a minimum 1.5" depth, letters over 24" will require a minimum 2.5" depth. Backs are also included to provide added structural support. Stud diameter
may also vary per architect specification. Rounded letters will require flattening.

Fabricated Stainless Steel Letters are perfect architectural letters for retail or other areas where high-end quality fabrication is an absolute must.

The Process:

Whether your project requires single-directional polished stainless steel or premium titanium coated stainless steel; your fabricated sign will be reproduced to exact specifications. Beginning with your artwork or any standard style, the process uses precision-guided lasers, routers or jigsaws to cut the requested letter, logo or shapes from thin gauge sheets of stainless steel or titanium-coated stainless steel. For most letters, 22-gauge material provides the proper balance of strength and weight, while some larger sign letters require 20-gauge material to provide adequate strength. The letter returns are produced from narrow band material or cut to size based on the desired letter depth and bent to the contour of the laser-cut faces to produce a hollow-backed letter with 90º angle edges that have clean, crisp corners and hand-soldered using a lead-free silver solder.

 

Fabricated Sign Letters can also be used in combination with buyer supplied neon lights or LEDs to create internally illuminated signage. Common users of these “halo lit” letters with neon and LED lighting include museums, office
complexes, financial institutions and other buildings that require an extremely high-end look for their signage.

LED or Neon Lighting is NOT SUPPLIED or Available from us.

Available in a wide variety of finishes such as brushed, polished or painted, Fabricated Stainless Steel Letters can be produced to your required depth and size. Gold Titanium coating is also available to provide the look of brass at a fraction of the cost..

Custom painted colors are also available using PMS matching or using a manufactures color such as Sherwin Williams, PPG, etc.
