Channel Letter Signs

Channel letter signs are a popular and effective form of signage.

Commonly used by businesses to promote their brand and attract attention. They consist of individually fabricated letters or characters that are typically made from metal, such as aluminium or stainless steel. These letters are hollow, allowing for the installation of lighting elements inside, which illuminates the sign from within.

The fabrication process of channel letter signs involves several steps. First, the design and dimensions of the letters are determined according to the customer's requirements and the available space for installation. Once the design is finalised, the metal sheets are cut into the desired shape using specialised machinery, such as laser or a cnc router.

After the letters are cut, they undergo a bending process to give them their three-dimensional shape. This is typically done using a computer-controlled bending machine, ensuring precision and consistency across all the letters. The sides or "returns" of the letters are then welded or fastened together to create a solid structure.

Once the letters are fabricated, they are painted or powder-coated to achieve the desired color and finish. This coating not only enhances the visual appeal of the sign but also provides protection against weather elements, such as UV rays and corrosion.

Further steps involve the installation of lighting components inside the letters. Typically, LED modules are used for illumination. LEDs offer the brightest and most consistent output. The additionally benefit from their increased energy efficiency and longevity. These lighting elements are carefully positioned and secured within the letters to ensure uniform illumination and maximum visibility.

Finally, the channel letter signs are mounted onto a backing material or directly onto the building facade. The installation method can vary depending on the location and the specific requirements of the project. The letters are securely attached to the surface using various techniques, such as stud mounting or flush mounting, to ensure stability and longevity.

Channel letter signs offer several advantages for businesses. Their three-dimensional design creates an eye-catching and professional look, making them highly visible both during the day and at night. The illuminated interior lighting provides added visibility and can be customised to create different effects, such as front-lit, back-lit, or halo-lit signs. Additionally, channel letter signs are durable, weather-resistant, and can be easily maintained.
