Aluminum Signs: Multiple Types
There are several kinds of aluminum signs from which to choose, each offering different plusses. The experts at Signs Now can help you select the type that’s best for your application and your budget:
- Aluminum signs consist of sheets of aluminum thick enough for many applications. Another term for aluminum signs is “standard aluminum signs.” It’s important to note that these aluminum signs are not the silver or metallic color you might expect. Standard aluminum sheets arrive at our location from the factory painted white. Of course, this base coat of white paint is often an advantage as many people specify custom-painted aluminum signs.
- Aluminum composite panels (ACP) are two sheets of aluminum that sandwich a solid plastic core. Often the choice for outdoor applications when extra rigidity is required, ACP signs are thicker than traditional aluminum signs yet lighter in weight! These aluminum signs are sometimes called e-panel aluminum signs. Alumalite™ is a brand name that’s often associated with aluminum composite panels.
- Brushed-aluminum signs are dull, polished-metal signs in the silver color you usually associate with aluminum. Many users, of course, appreciate the classic metallic appearance and make brushed aluminum part of their final signage design.
- Extruded aluminum signage is another term for aluminum signs. It refers to the production process in which an aluminum ingot is extruded or shaped. In the case of aluminum for aluminum signage, extruded means flattened.
