Illuminated Letters & Logos

  • Wall Mount

    Letters are secured to walls with screws - type and size to match letter weight and mounting surface type. Holes pre-drilled into letter backs by installer, screws pass through plastic and into mounting surface. Washers and/or anchors may be required.

  • Rail/Raceway Mount

    Letters are secured to raceways or rails (containing wires) with screws – type and size to match letter weight and mounting surface type. Holes pre-drilled into letter backs by installer, screws pass through plastic and into raceway or rail. Washer and/or wall anchors may be required.

  • Other Mounts

    Letters designed to create a halo effect (when lit with LEDs) are typically mounted to walls with studs and spacers to stand-off the wall – thus creating a halo. Typical stand-off is around 1-1/2", but can vary based on desired halo look and mounting surface color or sheen. Illuminated letters provided with LEDs and a UL Listing will be provided with installation and wiring instructions – and required special considerations regarding any electrical work – based on local and national electric (NEC) and UL codes or requirements. 

Changeable Copy

  • Track On Wall

    Flat changeable Pronto or Moon-Glo letter track is either glued or screwed to walls. The track is designed to allow letters to be removed from the face with a Change Arm. Track spacing is based on letter size and mounting surface.

  • Track On Panels

    Flat changeable Pronto or Moon-Glo track is either glued to panels or attached with nylon rivetes. The track is designed to allow letters to be removed from the face with a Change Arm. Track spacing is based on letter size and mounting surface.

  • Marquee Letters

    Dimensional Slotted or Snap-Lok Letters are designed to be installed onto custom profile extruded track. Clear Slotted plastic track can be either screwed to the wall or glued to plastic panels. Snap-Lok plastic or aluminum H-bars are designed to be attached with bar clips to panels or walls (view drawing). 

Plaques

  • Plain Mount

    Plaques with no mounting hardware that can be attached to mounting surface with a combination of adhesive or double-faced tape – based on surface and plaque weight.

  • Blind Stud Mount

    Back of plaque is drilled and tapped to receive threaded studs. Studs are pressed into pre-drilled wall holes and secured with adhesive and/or anchors – based on the wall type and letter weight. Studs can be aligned in-line for brick or block mortar upon request.(view drawing)

  • Solid Wall

    Machine screws, passing through plaque holes, with or without decorative rosettes. Screws are either bonded into wall holes with adhesive or a combination of adhesives and anchors – based on wall and plaque size and weight. (view drawing)

  • Hollow Wall

    Machine screws with toggle, passing through plaque holes, with or without decorative rosettes. Screws are then tightened to expand toggle in a hollow wall cavity. (view drawing)

  • Wood Mount
