About The Client
This started out as a bid project for us. The bid was for 4 different schools for exterior halo-lit dimensional letters that included Crestwood High School, Highview Elementary, Hillcrest Elementary, and Kinloch Elementary. Kinloch was by far very different than the other schools.
In this project, the architect had a place for the halo-lit dimensional letters on the corrugated metal to complete the look the school was hoping for. Halo lit dimensional letters are individual letters that are fabricated out of metal sheeting and welded together. The back of the letter is injected with LED modules and then sealed off with white defused acrylic plastic. This allows the light to shine through the white acrylic evenly and seal of the letter to make it watertight. We do make sure everything is up to UL standards when fabricating or installing any of our electrical signs. The letters were then painted red to jump off the corrugated metal where they were installed.
Installation was as complicated as it looks, but we were able to set the letters out from the corrugated metal enough so that the uneven surface did not affect the letters being installed evenly. Installers used the pin mount method, which allows the threaded rod to be silicone in the building’s exterior.
We are always excited to take on new experiences at Signarama. This project, along with the other 3 schools we placed halo-lit dimensional letters at, worked out perfectly. Our clients were extremely happy with the outcome and we have gotten additional work from them!
