Gemlite or Lit Formed Plastic are a 2 part plastic letter based on the popular formed plastic product produced for over 60 years. A molded plastic face fits over a molded plastic back that contain the LED modules. Traditionally this was a stepped return which partially revealed the white plastic back but we have recently introduced a full depth face that hides the back entirely. Gemlite is made in 5 different variants to suit different requirements. The material used for the face and back is a cotton based plastic known as CAB(Cellulose Acetate Butyrate) which is a durable plastic that remains flexible in all environments.
Lit formed plastic letters and logos are entirely produced in the USA and carry a manufacturer's lifetime warranty. LEDs on the other hand will not last forever. Most systems are designed to last approximately 50,000 hours, or around five years. After the LEDs fade or burn out, they will have to be replaced. Power supplies and LED modules ar UL Certified and carry a 5 year warranty.
The mount includes threaded blocks solvent-bonded to the letter back to receive a 10-24 threaded aluminum stud. Silicone adhesive should be applied to the studs and into the drilled holes at installation.A full size install pattern is included.
Made with transparent pigmented plastic, formed plastic face and side lit G-100 letters offer the best of both face and side lighting visibility. These letters come in two return options and flat, round, or prismatic font faces for a refined appearance.
