The Process of Installation

Posted on July 18th, 2017 by Abby Winfree

Have you ever wondered how the signs get installed after they are passed through design and production? There are many steps that lead up to the sign being installed, before actually installing it!

Pre-planning – Obtaining permits and meeting zoning requirements are critical.

Site Preparation – Where will the sign be displayed? Will it be attached to a wall, poles, or a monument base? Walls should be checked for structural integrity before considering attaching a sign. Poles should be mounted in concrete and monument bases.

Here is an example of a sign we recently installed for the Quad Cities Chamber in Galesburg, Illinois:

Attach the sign – Bolt the sign to the raceway or directly to the wall. Be certain to use hardware sturdy enough to withstand the weight and weather. Secure the sign snuggly with no wiggle room. Even the slightest movement of the sign in the wind can lead to structural problems to the sign and building.
