Heritage Gardens Signage

September 29, 2016


Heritage Gardens Rehabilitation and Healthcare in Carrollton, Texas needed a high quality monument sign to draw attention to their new facility. They chose Dallas Digital Signs & Graphics to design, build, and install their new centerpiece. After carefully designing the sign with their architect, we began fabricating the monument from aluminum tubing and sheet. The aluminum frames were precision cut and MIG welded in our Denton facility before the heavy wall .090 sheet aluminum was riveting on. The LED-illuminated sign cabinets were then produced and skinned the same way with aluminum angle retainers installed for the unbreakable, single piece Lexan poly carbonate faces. 

The plans initially called for 48 pairs of LEDs per cabinet; however we increased the amount to 76 to ensure a higher level of lighting that would work best in the particular location that the sign was situated. Next, the sign cabinets and decorative trim were prepared for painting and a faux stucco finish. The client requested a green faux stucco finish with silver decor trim pieces.  To do this we mixed Behr exterior enamel with masonry until it was the consistency of cookie dough and applied it with a roller.  After two coats the sign had a durable yet decorative shell to protect it against the elements.  The silver trim pieces were test fitted and any gaps were filled with 3M epoxy filler. After careful sanding and priming, they received several coats of exterior spray paint. The vector file containing the client’s logo was printed with our HP latex printers onto transparent vinyl and laminated with 3M UV resistant film to ensure durability in the outdoor environment. After applying transfer paper and peeling the backing off we carefully applied it to the poly carbonate sign face. Test lighting confirmed that the additional LED's added earlier made all the difference.  Final assembly included electrical wiring, drilling, and connecting disconnect switches to the LED power supplies and attaching angled trim pieces that cleanly hold the sign face in place.  After carefully packing the sign components we were ready to install at the customers site, We excavated and poured an engineered concrete footing with steel attachment embeds. After the concrete cured, the sign was installed, and 1/4" thick laser aluminum lettering was installed under the illuminated cabinets to display the customers address. After final electrical hookup and testing, the sign was ready to advertise Heritage
