Exterior LED Displays
Is the goal of new signage to provide a powerful visual experience for people while they are outdoors? Regardless of if the signage is needed for a stadium scoreboard, to create an aesthetic concert background, or if something smaller is required—like storefront advertising—the right LED display will produce the desired effect. These displays are completely customizable, which means it is possible to get what is needed when required from industry professionals dedicated to exceeding customer expectations.
Long-Lasting Design and Durability
The outside world can be treacherous. Dust, ultraviolet rays, snow, rain, and extreme temperatures are all things that can impact the signage used. However, thanks to modern innovation and the availability of UV protective treatments, waterproofing, dust-tight enclosures, and other specialized protection methods, the LED solutions commonly used can make it through any conditions or adverse weather.
The Right Light
When the sun is out, it isn’t easy to see LED signage. However, with the right LED displays, a person has a high brightness level that can deliver up to 6000 nits. This makes the signs visible and easy to see even in direct sunlight.
A Versatile and Flexible Option
Regardless of the environment, there is an outdoor LED display that will work. Today, it is possible to purchase lightweight outdoor displays that can be hung or video walls for a temporary event that are fast to install and disassemble even by a single person. Other features include fine pixel pitch video walls for viewing up-close or transparent mesh solutions to see through. It does not matter how close or far away the audience is from the signage, the right LED solution will provide the desired results no matter what they are.
Channel Letter Signs
Channel letters are a type of plastic or custom-made lettering option that is commonly used for outside signage found on commercial or public buildings. Sometimes, these letters are illuminated internally. The three-dimensional letters that are unlit and used for monuments or sign panels are typically called dimensional letters.
Standard Metal Construction
The standard channel letter features a 3D graphic sign element. The channel is usually designed out of sheet metal, which is typically aluminum since it does not rust. Usually, to create these letters, a flat sheet of aluminum is cut by a computer-controlled water jet, laser, or router, based on the selected vector-based file.
This is the process used to create the backside of the channel. It is also the basis for the shape of the letter. The channel letter’s sides, referred to as returns, are created by bending a three-inch to six-inch-wide aluminum strip around the pre-cut aluminum back. The return is then welded at the seam, or it can be riveted.
Once complete, the letter can be painted and fitted with the desired lighting components, such as light-emitting diode modules or neon gas tubes. The last step is the installation of the translucent plastic face that is made from polycarbonate or acrylic fiber. The trim cap border is then applied to the edges, providing a finished look for the letter. It also creates a fastening surface for attachments. When the lights inside the letter are turned on at night, they attract the attention of people who pass by.
Channel Letters with Exposed Neon
These are the standard channel letter described above, but the neon is covered up using a clear acrylic face. The goal is to help keep the birds from going inside and making a nest and to offer protection for the exposed neon from the external elements, such as adverse weather conditions. Also, this design lets more of the exposed neon be visible, along with the channel letter’s interior, which helps create a more defined dimensional appearance.
Channel Letters Plastic Formed
A formed channel letter will have a molded plastic back and a raised lip. The fact or cover is either round or prismatic, which is a faceted face. It is made from light-diffusing, translucent colored plastic. Light comes from the sides and the face of these letters. Vinyl that is cut can also be applied to the face, which creates several colored light effects and can create a halo look. Plastic faces may also be designed with a chrome finish so the letters look chrome during the day but still light up at night.
Reverse Lit or Halo Lit Letters
The light will flood the wall where the letter is installed can create a negative space during the night. Letters designed in this style are also referred to as halo letters. This is typically the costliest option to make. The LEDs will be installed through the back of the can, and the back may include translucent or clear plastic. Usually, the letters will be mounted about 1.5 inches away from the wall so there is a gap between them and the building. The interior of the can may be painted white to help reflect the light.
The halo lighting’s effect allows for several creative effects depending on the sheen, color, and the building surface’s texture. Light-colored building surfaces that feature a matte finish will create the best halo effect, while a dark, mirror-like finish is the worst.
Back and Face Lit Letters
These are letters that combine the same features offered by the back- and face-lit letters. The interior of the can is not typically painted white.
