Hi All,

We just got this new project for a small strip center. The green roof is fabricated .090 aluminum. The oval and plaza signs are carved. The box sign is electric with slide in tenant panels. Columns are 6"x6"x.25 steel powdercoated. Along with this free standing sign there are 5 42"x60" single sided oval tenant signs.

We have the aluminum frame and curved roof fabricated. Now its time to attach the wood siding and make the carved signs.

Well, after several delays we are back to work on this project. Here are a couple shots of the progress. We have the siding on the frame and the lifting points installed. The frame is aluminum but the lifting angles are steel. They are attached to the horizontal frame struts so that the load is distributed evenly.

What a beauty.

Yes they can get quiet heavy. We just finished up one about this size and it weighed 250 lbs+.

What I like about this kind of work they will last and look good for a long, long time.

John,

I've never done that type of work before. Is there any problem with Galvanic corrosion when combining the steel with the aluminum?

Yes and no... There will be galvanic action between the bolts and the aluminum angle. The angle iron is painted which slows the process down quite a bit. The steel angles are there for the purpose of lifting the sign into place. Eventually there will be some galvanic action at the bolt points but I'd guess; from what I've seen inside old signs; that it won't be an issue for a long time.They are there to lift the the sign during the installation.Once the sign is in place, they serve no purpose.

OK, the signs are mounted on the background. Next are the footings and then we install. It would be nice if it was a bit warmer.

The sign is installed. We picked up the posts at the powder finishing place and installed them, then went back to the shop for the elec. sign, top sign & roof. By the time we were finished it was 5:30. I went back today for a finished pic with good sunlight.
