Letter Construction Details (click here)
These letters are comprised of a U-shaped
channel that is made of metal. SignsByWeb uses
all aluminum construction in each Channel Letter we
make. Though aluminum construction costs slightly more,
it has many advantages over steel constructed Channel
Letters. Aluminum letters will never rust. Steel letters that rust cause
stain damage to the surrounding wall or roof area of
you business. Aluminum letters are also lighter than
steel and will require less mounting fixtures to be
installed onto your roof or wall. Once the channel of
the letter is built, custom-blown neon glass is installed.
Then the colored letter face is attached to the front
of the letter. Each letter is then properly wired to
a transformer located in the raceway or remotely, behind
the wall, depending on mounting method selected.
Anatomy of a Channel Letter includes the face, the trim cap, the returns (sides of letters) and the raceway (if applicable).
Channel Letters can be one of serveral different types, with the vast majority being Standard Channel Letters
There are a wide variety of standard colors available:
Types of Channel Letters
The most common type is Standard
Channel Letters. These letters are made up of a U-channel
base, with colored Plexiglas faces. Click here to view sample Channel Letters.
Channel Letters are ones that have metal faces and returns
(sides of letters) but have a clear plastic backing.
These letters are designed to be mounted an inch or
two away from the wall. At night, these letters create
a halo-lit effect.
third type of Channel Letters is one with 'open' faces.
Though not actually open, the faces of these letters
are clear plastic with the balance of the letters built
just like Standard Channel Letters. This allows for
the raw neon to be seen, as well as the inside of the
U-channel letterform itself. Open Face Channel Letters
are very effective for aggressively grabbing attention.
Channel Letters can be mounted
in one of two ways. They can be mounted either directly
to the wall, individually, or mounted on a rectangular
box called a raceway. Individually mounted letters look
better than raceway mounted letters. To mount letters
individually, SignsByWeb first lays out the
mounting pattern to your storefront, then drills holes
for hanging the letters as well as running the electric
through the wall. This superior looking method of mounting
Channel Letters also costs slightly more, since raceway
mounting takes far less time to install. Raceway mounting
is mostly done in our factory. Each letter is pre-spaced
and mounted to the raceway. This allows for easier installation,
we mount the raceway to the wall rather than each letter,
and all necessary wiring is contained primarily in the
raceway as well.
Every Channel Letter SignsByWeb makes is built to UL standards. Most sign
companies offer UL listed construction as a premium
option with premium option pricing. Nearly every zoning
department in nearly every county requires UL Listed
signs, and for good reason. Illuminated signs, especially
channel letters have many electrical connections. The
nature of neon itself allows for the electricity to
arc, or jump from the glass to the metal letter itself
if not properly constructed. Electric signs need to
be properly constructed and wired to prevent any problems.
SignsByWeb builds highest-quality Channel Letter signs.
