 INSTALLING YOUR ATOP OF WALL SIGN.

  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 installing it.

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 250 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.

 
  Uncrate your sign and inspect for any concealed damage.  
  Your standard model on-wall sign will mount using one of two options. You can have us provide you with exterior brackets or interior gussets ( braces ). Please advise your sales representative which method you prefer.

 
 
  Consult with your electrical contractor for how he prefers connecting to your sign. The electrical can be run straight into the cabinet through the inside rear wall or through either the extrusion side wall or bottom of the cabinet.    
  Your vandal cover uses push pin keys. We can mail replacement keys when needed.  
  Engineered drawings are not provided for atop of wall sign cabinets. Installing your cabinet involves one of two options:
  • Signs to be mounted atop of an existing wall.
  • Signs to be installed atop of a wall to be built.

Your sign cabinet will include a steel 8" x 8" plate that extends below the cabinet.  Threaded rods are not provided unless requested. Our standard 3/4 inch threaded rods are excellent for applications where the rods can be installed as the wall is being built.

On existing walls, threaded rods will need to be installed.  A minimum of 6 inches will need to be drilled for the rods. We recommend an epoxy available in almost any hardware store.

  Please remember to share any photographs that you have taken with us. We understand it is not always convenient to have someone taking pictures but the pictures that you share WILL help someone else understand the installation steps involved in their new sign.

We would especially appreciate photos showing...

  • Unloading your sign from the truck.
  • Attaching your sign to the wall.
  • Wiring the electrical on your sign.
  • Your completed sign with the installation "crew".

When we receive photos of signs with a message such as "THANK YOU CORNERSTONE", we immediately mail a free message book as a Thank-you. Should you be able to video your installation, contact your sales representative and ask about a Special Reward.
