Lightbox alternative

Sign cabinets like the one we have pictured here are seen nearly everywhere. These are most commonly constructed from some sort of metal into a sign cabinet and faced with any number of plastics, translucent vinyls or metals. They also come in a great variety of shapes, sizes and lighting effect.

Most of what we see out there are the light-box variety. This consists of an aluminum cabinet with fluorescent tubes set inside. The sign face is either a flat or a raised pan style acrylic plastic. This light-box style is ideal if you are looking to illuminate your sign during the dark hours of each day. If illumination is not important to you then we have the perfect solution.

Our friends at TCM were looking for a sign that would stand out and easily mount to the uneven surface of there building. They were not interested in having the sign illuminate at night so the aluminum pan sign was a perfect fit. Our pan signs consists of a heavier gage aluminum with a fabricated folds on all 4 sides creating a "pan". The folds vary from 1" to 2" and are reinforced for added durability and structural support. Installation with this type of sign is relatively simple too. With our basic hardware kit, the installation of this type of sign can be tackled by the average handyman.

The real bonus with aluminum pan style sign is the cost savings it brings our clients. In today's market who is not looking for a savings?
