Rusty Steel Metal Letters

Rusty steel letters are often made from low quality steel that will rust all the way though and disintegrate over time. Corten steel, often referred to as weathering steel, is a group of steel alloys which were developed to eliminate the need for painting, and form a stable rust-like appearance after exposure to weather. U.S. Steel holds the registered trademark on the name COR-TEN. Corten steel is becoming very popular in architectural design of modern buildings. Only the surface rusts, not the underlying steel and as a by product of that process, the rusty surface actually protects the underlying metal. If you need rusty looking sign letters but want to avoid the gradual degradation of the steel itself, you have found what you are looking for! cut metal letters banner

Corten Steel is a group of steel alloys that are often used in outdoor construction. Corten Steel eliminates the need for painting and if left outside, exposed to the elements, they will develop a rusted appearance in just a few months. Our Corten steel sign letters, numbers and logos come to you as a grey steel with some rust already started. If you want to speed up the weathering process you can apply a solution of vinegar in water and use a pump spray to soak the letters every day after they are installed.

INDOOR OR OUTDOOR USE.

Mounting Hardware

no mount option

PLAIN MOUNT

The no-mount option is for when you want to glue letters directly to a flat surface using some kind of adhesive such as silicon caulk or liquid nails. The problem with this type of installation is that glue tends to squeeze out the edges and it can get very messy. Also, until your glue sets the letters can move around and for large letters that means you need to use long strips of masking tape to hold them in place.

welded stud option

3M DOUBLE FACE TAPE

Only available up to 6" letter size and not available with polished or anodized finishes as we need studs on those to do the polishing or anodizing. Double face tape should never be relied upon as the sole source of adhesion to the substrate. We do not recommend double face tape for outdoor use.

removable stud option

REMOVABLE STUD MOUNT

The most popular mount with cut metal letters is the stud mount. Aluminum letters and numbers with removable or screw in studs, have been drilled and tapped on the back of the letter to accept the stud. The stud then gets glued into your mounting surface with silicon caulk or epoxy and holds the letters firmly in place. All stud type mounts require a mounting pattern to properly locate where to drill for the studs. A stud mount of one form or another is required when ordering Polished, Anodized or Powdercoated aluminum letters because the manufacturing process cannot be done without them.

edge mount option

EDGE STUD MOUNT

The bottom stud (or top or both!) gives you tapped holes in the edge of the letters for mounting in a vertical configuration. Metal letters have to be at least 3/8" thick to drill the holes and the letters have a minimum height of 4" Round letters will have flat bottoms and the same applies to top drilled letters. Metal letters 8" or more must by code have tie backs when used outside. We do not supply tie backs.

bottom or top rail option

BOTTOM/TOP RAIL MOUNT

Maximum length of rail is 8ft and not available for letters greater than 24" or less than 4". Metal letters are bolted through the rail into their edge and can be done either on the bottom, the top or both by request. This ordering form only provides a single rail on the bottom of the letters. For additional options please contact us for a quote.

combo-all mount option

BACK RAIL MOUNT

The double rail is mostly used for installation on metal corrugated buildings. It does detract from the look of the sign and is considered old school. In today's world a metal conduit raceway from home depot would look better to mount your letters on, and they come ready finished. Double rail mount has a maximum 8ft length and the rails are pre drilled to accept the letters ordered with screws that go through the rail into the letters. Assembly is required.

angle bracket mount option

ANGLE BRACKET MOUNT

Angle bracket is mounted to a flat surface like a roof parapet and the letters are attached to the rail at the bottom only. This mount will require tie backs if outside and over 8" letter height.
