||You will be notified when your sign is
prepared for shipment. You will receive either an email
or a phone call providing the name of the shipping
company, the Bill of Laden number and the terminal phone
number. We recommend that you call the dispatcher
at the freight company and ask about your sign's
delivery. Every freight company wants to make the
delivery of your sign as convenient as possible.
Depending on routes and loads, remember that it may be
necessary for you to have man power available at a time
that may not be the most convenient. This may be
unavoidable at times. An option should this occur would
be to have your sign delivered at a local business that
has a loading dock. Later when it is more convenient,
you can transport your sign to where you will be
More often, your sign will be delivered
to your facility at a convenient time. You will normally
be provided an approximate time or span of time to
expect delivery. Your sign will weight between 300 and
500 pounds on average. We recommend you have four to
five men available to slide your sign from the truck
down onto the ground.
Many times, you can request your sign be delivered on
a truck with a lift-gate. There will be an additional
charge. This is about $100.00 on average. Not all
delivery routes however have a lift-gate option
available. If you desire a lift-gate, ask the dispatcher
if you can receive your sign on a truck that has one.
||Your cabinet keys are standard key
stock. We recommend you have several additional keys
made when convenient. We can mail replacement keys
||Premier model signs that are installing
on a wall have two options available. One option
is we can provide you with brackets welded onto your
cabinet. The other option is to install your cabinet by
drilling straight through corners gussets (braces)
provided on the inside of your sign cabinet.
||If your wall does not have a base for
your cabinet to rest on, the cabinet should be installed
using lag bolts. If there is a wall, you can use
either lag bolts or heavy duty tap in drive pins.
Signs resting on a base will require a minimum of one
quarter inch spacing for condensation drainage vi the
weep holes provided in the bottom of your cabinet.
||Your sign face hangs from a hangar bar. It is necessary
to set your sign face back onto the hangar bar when the
face is returned to the cabinet. Closing the cabinet
door with the face not placed properly can result in
binding the door against the face. The faces are made of
virtually unbreakable polycarbonate but can be damaged
if sufficient pressure is exerted.
||You will need to open your sign cabinet
and remove the sign face to reduce the weight of the
sign cabinet for installing purposes. The
electrical wiring of your sign is under aluminum covers
on the inside walls of your sign cabinet. Removing
these covers will provide you with access to the
extrusion walls for drilling.
The electrical wiring is
located on the inside at the bottom of your sign
cabinet. Extra length of wiring is coiled up and
is located beneath access panels at the bottom of the
Consult your local electrician for how he would best
like to access your sign cabinet. Because the walls are
aluminum extrusion, access can be made by drilling
straight through either the walls or the base.
||An on/off switch is provided on every
sign. The location of the switch will depend on whether
or not you will be having us provide you with angle
brackets or not. If your sign will rest on a base and
will be mounting without a space between the columns and
the sign cabinet, the switch will need to be located on
the top of the cabinet. Please tell your sales
representative how your installation will be made so
that we can provide the switch without you having to

that you have taken with us. We understand it is not
always convenient to have someone taking pictures but
