Use this CSI 3-part SimpleSpecs™ master to specify dimensional letters; individual metal letters for interior or exterior use.
Finishes for exterior aluminum must provide resistance to weathering and ultraviolet degradation. Class II anodizing and lower-quality painted coatings may not be suitable for exterior use.
Dimensional letters are individual metal letters that can be used for both interior and exterior signage. They are typically made of aluminum, stainless steel, bronze, or brass and can be cut into various sizes and shapes to create a custom look. They can be used to spell out words or create logos and are used to identify a building, a business, or a specific location. Letters may be either attached directly to a substrate or raised off the surface (projected) on dowels.
Dimensional letters are a popular choice for building owners because they are durable and long-lasting. They can withstand harsh weather conditions and are resistant to fading and rust, which makes them ideal for exterior use. They can also be illuminated, making them highly visible even in low-light conditions.
In addition to their durability, they offer a high level of flexibility in terms of design. They can be painted, powder coated or anodized to match any color scheme, and they can be cut into a variety of different shapes and sizes to create a custom look.
Furthermore, dimensional letters are relatively easy to install and maintain, which makes them a cost-effective option for building owners. They can also be removed and re-used if the building or business changes names or is sold.
