Bad LED sign installations are becoming more the norm than the exception. Buyer beware is the old adage and I’m here to tell you it is true. When you spend your hard earned money on an LED sign, you expect it to operate at all times, a bad LED sign installation is the most common reason an LED sign will fail or constantly have to be repaired. You should hire only companies who have a good track record of installing LED signs and that know all the right ways to avoid costly mistakes.
An LED sign is one of the best investments a business or organization can make when they have a brick and mortar location. The more traffic that passes by your location, the higher the return. LED signs are proven to attract attention and the ability to change your message so easily is its single greatest feature. Imagine being able to advertise your special of the day on the day of the special, or announcing a weekday special well in advance to build your audience of new customers? There really is no limit to what you can achieve with an LED sign as your marketing tool.
Some of you may have purchased an LED sign or some of you are just now looking into one for your location. Having worked in the LED sign industry for well over 9 years, I have come across clients who have lost thousands of dollars because they chose the wrong company for installation. An LED sign is a complex electronic device, it depends on accurate power and amperage, proper grounding, proper ventilation and a qualified installer to ensure all are correct.
Sign-Express has been selling and installing LED signs from more than seventeen years and that type of experience is hard to find. Our team boasts over 1000 signs installed nationwide. All of our Sign-Express LED sign installers are trained in specific LED sign installation methods. Before all installs, the client is provided a detailed power specifications document that outlines the power requirements for the LED sign and the other identification sign(s) included in the order. Stamped engineering drawings are ordered to ensure that the proper footing and mounting method is up to code and sufficient for soil and extreme weather conditions in the area. Sign installers are provided a detailed LED sign installation manual, engineering drawings and configuration diagrams for proper signal connecting and instructions on the mounting method to be used. Once the installation is completed, installers are required to walk the structure with the client and acquire a customer signature of approval. Photos of the completed installation are the final step, this is how Sign-Express documents the work performed such as electrical breakers controlling the sign, the grounding-rod proper installation, adequate ventilation of the electronic signs and working photos of the sign in operation. These photos will allow our support technicians to identify issues that may occur and have them corrected before the LED sign is damaged. We have found that 90% of failures of an LED sign can be avoided by taking these steps at the time of installation.
So if you are in the market for a new LED sign, please be diligent in choosing both your LED display for the correct size and location and only hire an installation company who is skilled in LED display installations.
