The Low cost alternative to solid or cast metal letters, widely used on reception and honor walls, waiting rooms, break rooms and conference rooms. REAL METAL!
Slides show various types of laminated letters including Gemleaf, Metal on Foam, Acrylic on Foam and Metal Face Acrylic
Typically ready to ship in 6 working days or less from the Iowa Plant
Gemleaf™ employs microns thick foil laminated to acrylic in up to 1/4" thick. Unlike metal face acrylic which utilizes real metal sheet, Gemleaf has metals, wood and marble patterns simulated on the face. This allows for laser cutting so we can create letters and logos as small as 1" tall. Typically 5 to 7 production days.
ALL OUR LETTERS AND LOGOS CARRY OUR LIFETIME GUARANTEE!
The no-mount option is for when you want to glue letters directly to a flat surface using some kind of adhesive such as silicon caulk or liquid nails. The problem with this type of installation is that glue tends to squeeze out the edges and it can get very messy. Also, until your glue sets the letters can move around and for large letters that means you need to use long strips of masking tape to hold them in place.
DOUBLEFACE TAPE MOUNT
Double sided tape can only be applied to letters up to 24" in height. If using this option then always use a liquid silicon caulk as well to protect the letters in case the tape should fail
Plastic pad extending beyond back of letter, typical with plastic letters, install product direct to wall without having to drill any holes. Installed with use of a spacing guide. Silicone is a common adhesive to hold such letters.
STUD IN BLOCK MOUNT
This is the default stud mount. This option will have blocks glued to the backs of the letters that create a natural surface standoff of about 3/8" which can be enhanced by choosing a standoff length in the forms options. The blocks are drilled and tapped to accept studs(threaded rods) that get glued into holes drilled in the mounting surface. A drill mounting pattern is required.
The combo or combination mount differs from the combination all mount in that it only has stud THROUGH pads on the tops of the letters and standard PAD mounts on the bottoms. This mount is useful where you want to drill as few holes as possible and still have mounting rods(studs) in the wall. Installed by drilling holes for the stud through pad and adhering non stud pads directly to mounting surface. A drill mounting pattern is required.
COMBO ALL MOUNT
The combination all mount is stud through pad on all points. This gives you adjustability on every stud and is useful for irregular surfaces such as corrugated metal buildings, lap siding, stone walls or anywhere you want a standoff form the wall that is adjustable during installation. A drill mounting pattern is required
FLUSH STUD MOUNT
Letters have to be at least 3/8" thick to drill and tap the holes but this mount is very secure since it does not rely on a glued block to hold the stud. This mount is best used without wall stand-off which will compromise the purpose of this mount which is to prevent theft. If you want stand-off you can select it also but allow for the stud length which should be 2" in the wall plus the length of the stand-off. Mounting pattern is required. See the section above for mounting to real brick or for more information.
