Easy to install fixings for built-up lettering
Your built-up lettering will be pre-fitted with this type of fixing system.
This diagram shows how the fixings are mounted onto the back of your built-up lettering. If you specify face illuminated built-up lettering which has foam PVC backs the mounting pins will be bolted to the PVC. The fixing system is the same for both halo and face illuminated built-up lettering.
This built-up lettering system works on sign trays and panels too. After step 1 you simply drill holes into your sign panels and bolt the built-up lettering through to the backside of the panel. The space nuts supplied with your built-up lettering allows you to set a standoff distance from letter to sign panel.
Holes drilled in sign panels should be 7-8mm in diameter to accept the M6 threaded letter fixing studs.

Notes on this type of letter fixing:
It is very important that you blow out the fixing holes before injecting resin. If you do not do this the chemical resin bonds to the masonry dust, not the masonry.
