Do you know how a lobby sign installed and what are the important elements to have in consideration while doing this? Well let’s take a look. The video at the bottom will also give you an idea of how it’s done.

In this example, Signs for San Diego installed a lobby sign for Sage Beverages, a local company from Northern San Diego County. The first step to install this lobby sign was to draw on a big sheet of paper, the sign’s perimeter, and also the points where the screws would go, which would later hold the sign on the wall. It is also smart to make a note on the sheet of paper which part is the top and which one is the bottom. These baselines were m done to have an idea of where the sign would go on the wall and how the sign was going to look once installed.

The wall has to be measured, and double checked to center the sign perfectly. Positioning the lobby sign is essential, it has to be placed where everyone notices it when stepping into the room. After the sheet of paper with the drawing of the sign was centered and leveled, we placed it on the wall using tape. Then, we drill several holes onto the wall though the paper. These holes form the spots where the screws hold the sign.

Removing the sheet with the baseline, we place the sign’s support studs into the holes, and we carry the lobby sign in, placing it on the wall. Each stud acts as the base for a one inch chrome standoff. The standoffs bring depth to the lobby sign. The Standoffs go through the sign and anchor it with a threaded cap. The cap installation in the final mounting of the lobby sign and the lobby sign is now installed. Now you know how to position and installed a lobby sign.
