Channel letters are also known as "internally illuminated letters". This description says it all in that each letter is generally lit from the inside with light shining through the plastic sign face or out the back of the letter (called a halo-lit, or reverse channel letter). Both neon tubing and LED are used in channel letter signs. We are a UL Listed manufacturer, designer, and installer of channel letter signs in the Chicago area.
As is the case for most of the signs we offer, channel letters are custom made from metal and plastic, and are commonly illuminated with LED lighting (very efficient) or neon tubing.
Channel letter signs may be installed directly to the building facia (each letter is mounted individually) or on a raceway. A raceway is a pre-fabricated metal box that runs the length of the channel letter sign. The raceway is then mounted directly to the building facia.
Your type of installation may be determined by the city ordinance or building owner's sign criteria. We can help you get the results you're looking for. Our channel letters are manufactured to the strictest standards, and meet all the necessary local electrical and building codes.
Types of Channel Letter Signs
>Standard Letters - are 3 dimensional letters covered with thick plastic and illuminated from the inside. >Exposed Neon - These resemble Standard Letters but there is no plastic covering, allowing the neon to show through. >Backlit - These have a solid opaque front and are illuminated from behind the letter, causing a "negative space" when illuminated at night.
