Helvetica Medium Condensed Cast Metal Sign Letters
Lifetime guarantee! Each metal letter is precision cast in aluminum or bronze using up to twenty distinct manufacturing steps. The metal provides strength and permanence to your image. Seven metal finishes give you the choice of dazzling shine, brilliant color, or natural and antiquated metal. Combine these finishes with an extensive selection of letter styles to design signs that reflect your individual image.
The cast aluminum sign letters use virgin aluminum ingots Alloy 356 that are melted down in an all-electric, pollution free furnace. Aluminum Alloy 356 is a superior metal for outdoor signage because of its strength, hardness and corrosion resistance against weather extremes particularly in marine areas. This aluminum alloy has a tensile strength of 38,000 psi! The bronze cast sign letters use virgin bronze ingots Alloy NAVY G-88-8-0-4 lead free that are melted down in an all-electric, pollution free furnace. NAVY G-88-8-0-4 lead free is a superior metal for outdoor signage because of its strength and hardness.
The melted ingot is poured into a letter mold, which has been designed for excellent legibility. The mold also has added depth to give your character real dimension. Once your letter has been cast by skilled craftsmen, it is shot blasted, degated and belt sanded in preparation of finishing. The cast metal characters are turned over, drilled and tapped at the appropriate stud diameter for its stud mounting hardware used during your installation. In the finishing process, the letter is bead-blasted to make it precise and smooth then stroke sanded to give it a natural satin finish. Except for anodized finished (due to its metal changing properties), the letters are set up on a rack where it is coated with a two-part hardened acrylic polyurethane clear coat, then sent to an oven for baking. Your letters are then laid out for careful quality inspection then seal-tight packaged so your letters arrive mistake-free.
The cast aluminum letters can be anodizing in the colors of clear, gold, medium bronze, dark bronze or black. The anodized aluminum letter uses virgin ingots Alloy 514. Anodizing is an electro-chemical process which embeds the colored dye into the microscopic pores in the aluminum surface of the letter. The aluminum letter can also be painted, select from 45 baked enamel colors.
The online sign designer is for font style preview only. We provide the approximate sign dimensions for comparison purposes only. We have taken great care in providing the closest sign dimensions possible. Due to manufacturing processes beyond our control (temperature, pressure, mold locations) we cannot guarantee an exact line length. As a rule of thumb, allow 15% margin for space around the letters. This makes your sign more effective as well. Please call for exact dimensions.
These characters come with a lifetime warranty against fading, cracking, pitting or chipping as long as the letters are installed in their original location. Routine maintenance of rinsing with mild soap and water usually will restore the metal surface to its original appearance. Metal sign letters take 6-8 business days to produce plus transit time.
