While driving on Fourways Crossing back roads I found this sign yesterday.
Imagine how hard it must have hailed to weaken and break the Acrylic.
I stopped the car and looked around and saw there were pieces of debris and details made of 3mm thickness Perspex with caps made of American Gemini plastic trim.
I thought about it for a while and came to the conclusion that if we made it with the polycarbonate sheet we supply, this would not have happened.
Using the materials we supply has the following advantages.
1. Because the PC is strong and flexible, it does not break easily. The price may be similar or even less than Perspex or Plaxiglass.
2. It is not plastic trim but aluminum trim, so it is light and strong. Also, it is very stable because you put the PC in a groove in the trim and secure it by shooting nails around the edges.
3. It is cost saving because it does not use expensive glue.
4. Operation is very fast and clean as there is no need to wait for it to dry.
Yes, you’re right! This is a natural disaster and thus the warranty is not applicable here, but it will be one less signage project without any extra sales effort required.
What if you offer your client a second option instead of Perspex at a lower price? Using the LED optimized diffusion poly-carbonate material which has very little chance of breaking. Which option will they choose?
Here is another damaged signage project.
This broken channel letter signage has been on display now for several months.
