SignLettersOnline Flat Acrylic Installation Methods

Plain Mount is where we do not attach any mounting hardware onto the letters. There are many reasons to choose this method and the letters are installed in a number of ways. Most installations would have you apply clear silicone adhesive or VHB tape to the letter back.

Pad Mount is where we attach clear plastic pads to the letter back onto which you apply clear silicone adhesive and press into place on the mounting surface. You would then tape the letter into place (for approx. 3-8 hours) until the silicone has a chance to set-up (this may take more or less time on each installation).

Stud Mount is a 3/16"diameter 10-24 stud coming out the back. The stud mounting block will act as spacers which allow your letter to stand off the mounting surface. You can specify stud lengths of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 inches (3" stnd). Specify if studs need to be in line for brick or block wall mortar joints. Drilling Pattern is Needed!

Combination Mount is a stud going through a pad on the top half of the letter and simply a pad mount on the bottom half. You would drill a 1/4" diam. hole to accommodate the stud for only the top of each letter, as the bottom would only be a surface mount pad. Specify if studs need to be in line for brick or block wall mortar joints. Not for letters under 6 inches. Drilling Pattern is Needed!

Combination All Mount is a stud going through a pad on all locations (upper and lower parts of the letters). You would drill a 1/4" diam. hole to accommodate the stud. Fill hole with silicone. Specify if studs need to be in line for brick or block wall mortar joints. Not for letters under 6 inches.  Drilling Pattern is Needed!
Flush Stud Mount is a where we drill and tap into the letter material itself to thread the stud into the letter. This method allows for a stud mount without any standoff since the letter can be set flat against the mounting surface (no stud block/spacer). Otherwise this method is similar to Stnd Stud Mount above. Specify if studs need to be in line for brick or block wall mortar joints. Letters Must Be 3/8" Thick.  Drilling Pattern is Needed!
