UNIQUE DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION
Proprietary Aluminum Extrusion System
Our Proprietary Aluminum Extrusion is 170% thicker and contains almost three times as much aluminum as most other signs.
Durable & Smooth Sign Cabinet
Construction and design of the sign cabinet determines the aesthetic appeal and long term durability of the sign. Our cabinet is without equal in the industry! Building on our Extrusion System, our cabinet is almost twice as thick and wide as other signs - that means our sign is significantly stronger. It stands up to abuse and provides years of extended service life. Take a look at the corners. They’re rounded and smooth, not sharp-edged. Here’s a sign of outstanding appearance and superior workmanship. It’s obvious we didn’t cut corners. Now look for the hinges and screws…You won’t find any. This adds to the smooth classic, clean-line appearance.
Dual Face Technology
Our Durasigns have TWO FACES on each side and are far superior to the ordinary double sided sign. The Inner Face is constructed of exceptionally thick (3/16”), white translucent acrylic. It’s smooth – not pan-formed or planked providing crystal clear illumination. High performance 3M vinyls create your name and logos. The clear letter track is chemically bonded to the inner face, precluding the use of rivets that show up at night as unsightly dark spots. Our Outer Face is constructed of 3/16" high impact-resistant U. V. polycarbonate (50 % thicker than most other companies that use 1/8" thick polycarbonate). It protects the Inner Face and ensures the sign's long-lasting good looks. The Outer Face marries with the cabinet extrusion, creating a positive seal and completing the form.
We make sure that our signs provide better vandal protection than any other sign on the market by using:
- Graffiti Resistant Paint
- Break-Resistant UV Polycarbonate
- Industrial Quality Locks
- Thickest Aluminum Cabinet
- No Hinges or Fasteners
Sealed Outer Door
Other sign makers manufacture double sided signs with a single face on each side. To protect the message area from damaging mischief, an add-on vandal cover is attached to the plastic face with rivets or screws. This is not a good solution. The add-on vandal cover does not seal to the sign face – so moisture and mildew fog the enclosure. Meanwhile, June bugs, moths, and other flying insects find their way inside along with mold, dirt and road grime. The sign faces become dull and unattractive. Our outer door creates a positive seal that keeps out:
- Dirt & Road Grime
Industrial Quality Locks
We use industrial quality locks to secure the outer door of the sign cabinet. The keys cannot be removed while in the “unlocked position” insuring that you never forget to lock it. Other sign maker's “add-on vandal covers” use screws to secure the cover. Don’t be fooled when they say they use a “key”. It is simply an allen-key head with a key shape design.
Our Outer Face reveals the full width and height of the inner face. The inner face is smooth-not planked- and provides crystal clear illumination and unsurpassed visibility. Our clear letter tracks are chemically bonded to the inner face, precluding the use of rivets that show up at night as unsightly dark spots.
