There are a variety of installation options for reflective aluminum signs. We offer the following installation accessories: standoffs, command strips, zip ties and hanging clips. Choose the one that best matches the location of installation.
Required tools: Standoffs, a drill, screws, anchors, marker and a measurer
Standoffs include an anchor, screw, barrel, and a cap with threaded stud. The anchor is used to mount the standoff to the wall. The standoff barrel is what spaces the sign at a desired distance from the wall. Then, the threaded stud is used to sandwich the sign with the cap which adds the decorative finish to the wall-mounted sign.
Before installing, take the measuring tape and find the perfect position for display. Take the sign with pre-drilled holes and place it on the wall. Using the holes on the sign as a guide, mark the areas for the standoffs on the wall.
Step 1: Drill 4 holes in the marked areas.
Step 2: Install the anchors, leaving enough external threading to allow the barrel to attach to the exposed end.
Step 3: Now, take the barrel and screw it onto the wall through the anchor. Repeat the same action with the rest of the barrels.
Step 4: Next, take the sign and line up the drilled holes with the standoffs on the wall.
Step 5: Take the caps with the threaded studs and fasten the sign onto the standoffs. This will sandwich the reflective sign between the barrel and the cap.
We’re done. The sign is securely mounted to the wall with standoffs.
Required tools: 4 pairs of command strips, masking tape, scissors, measuring tape
Command strips will arrive in pairs already attached to the back of the sign. The strips consist of two identical layers ‘clicked’ together. One side of the strip is covered with an adhesive layer and the other with hooks.
To attain maximum adhesion, the selected surface area must be clean, dry and smooth. Before the installation, thoroughly clean the area of application and allow it to dry completely.
Next, take the measuring device and find the perfect placement for the installation. Adjust the reflective metal sign to your desired position and mark the area of application with masking tape.
Step 1: Take the sign with command strips already attached to it and peel off the liners of the strips.
Step 2: Press the sign with the strips against the surface in the pre-marked location.
Step 3: Now, once the sign is attached to its place, you can remove the masking tape.
Step 4: To ensure the adhesive will hold, remove the sign from its bottom corners, pulling it up and away from the surface.
Step 5: Next, press the strips onto the wall for a few seconds to ensure that they are secure.
Step 6: Wait about an hour before reattaching the frame to make sure the strips are securely attached to the surface.
Step 7: After about an hour, align the strips on the frame with the strips on the wall. Press the sign onto the wall until each pair of strips click and seal into place.
We’re done. The rigid sign is now securely fixed in its place.
In case you need to remove the sign, grab its bottom corners, then pull it up and away from the surface. Finally, remove the strips by pulling them downward.
First, you need to find the perfect location with a fitted object for reflective aluminum sign installation with zip ties.
Step 1: Position the sign with pre-drilled holes into place.
Step 2: Take one side of the sign and pass the tip of the zip tie through the hole.
Step 3: Now, thread the zip tie around the object it will be secured onto. Pull the zip tie through the hole on the other end to tighten it and secure the sign into place.
Step 4: Take the scissors and cut the extra end of the zip tie for a cleaner look.
Step 5: Repeat the same action with the rest of the applicable corners of the sign.
We’re done. The light reflective sign is securely fixed into place from two or four corners as needed.
If you want to hang your reflective aluminum sign, hanging clips are the best option and require a very simple installation.
Step 1: Take the hanging clips and pass them through the pre-drilled holes on the reflective sign.
Step 2: Now take the sign with the clips and hang it from the ceiling hardware or any other location ideal for a hanging clip installation.
Download our PDF installation guides, which provide step-by-step instructions on how to install custom reflective aluminum signs with different accessories. Installation guides are available for the following accessories: zip ties, command strips, standoffs and hanging clips, which can be downloaded separately. Each guide provides precise information on the required hardware and techniques of application.
