Monument sign refurbishing in Los Angeles, CA, would be the last aspect of the Compton College signage project we did. You may remember that we had done an athletics passenger van wrap, commercial truck wraps, pole banners to welcome students, and long-lasting 3D building lettering. For this project, we include some before and after photos to show the dramatic change in display.
Back in the day, standard lightbulbs were the height of illumination technology for monument signs. However, this setup had its problems. The bulbs’ heat tended to yellow the acrylic or polycarbonate sheets placed over them. Moreover, the continued heating and cooling would cause the material to become brittle.
Besides these issues, there were frequent burnouts that required replacement bulbs. Finally, illuminating a monument sign with lightbulbs was expensive. On the other side of the equation are LEDs. They give off no heat, last a very long time, and are inexpensive to operate – even around the clock. Retrofitting clearly makes sense to clients.
In addition to retrofitting the existing monument signs to use LEDs for illumination, we also focused on some cosmetic issues.
It is interesting to note that LED conversions pay for themselves in just a few short years, simply because of the energy savings. Moreover, LEDs have a typical life of more than ten years, which saves quite a bit of money on maintenance and replacement.
Monument sign refurbishing in L.A. or anywhere in Orange County is a service we frequently provide to clients who invested in their exterior signs a while ago. Before LEDs were considered the best practice for signage design, standard bulbs were the best options. If you have exterior building signs or monuments that need refurbishing, we are glad to help.
