Illuminated Sign Boxes
What’s in the box?
Sign boxes, (AKA sign cabinets and fascia), are signs constructed of a cabinet with a graphic face and internal lighting. These are often affixed to the front of a building to advertise a business to passers-by. An illuminated box can be single or double-sided depending on the usage. A simple illuminated box will have a flat plastic face with printed/vinyl graphics applied to it to get the desired design.

Polycarbonate is naturally semi transparent thermoplastic, popular due to its high performance in any environment.
Capable of withstanding significant deformation due to high temperatures and inclement weather.
It also provides superior impact strength, high resistance to cracking or shattering.
When a sign exceeds a certain size margin, (~<7’ tall – 10’ long) using solid plastic might lead to some issues
- The sign becomes heavier and requires more supports being affixed to the walls to ensure stability
- The stoppers inside the sign box can only absorb so much movement so wobbling may be heard from inside the building, especially on windy days
These can be avoided by upgrading to flex face. Flex face is a banner-like canvas material stretched into a frame, like a drum, and decorated with printed or vinyl graphics.

Blade Signs are projecting or suspended signs perpendicular to the building façade. They are typically double-sided sign boxes and can be illuminated or non-illuminated. They are smaller in scale, and their objective is to attract foot traffic from those walking past on sidewalks. Because of this, they are popular in metropolitan areas, downtown areas, shopping malls, and anywhere that sees passing foot traffic.
