Pylon signs mark your business location and may be your strongest advertising component. A creatively designed free-standing sign which has been optimally positioned attracts attention and advertises to passers-by around the clock. Affordable Signs & Neon is your choice in all signs including pylon signs of the highest quality in Frederick County, Montgomery County, Baltimore County, Howard County, Carroll County & Washington County Maryland.
Although there are many styles of pylons, most are constructed of aluminum and steel. The graphics are adhered to translucent panels internally illuminated by high output fluorescent lamps.
Pylon signs are not limited to fluorescent lamps. New pylon signs are fitted with LEDs which are 100% green energy. Also, LEDs hold up in extreme weather which maintains brightness. Fluorescent lamps can have a dim appearance during cold weather. LEDs have a lesser effect on the brightness of the sign if a few LEDs go bad, versus fluorescent lamps that can make the sign look dim when one or two bulbs go bad.
Pylon signs with existing Fluorescent lamps can be “Retro-fitted” with LEDs to help alleviate the cost of a new pylon sign. “Retro-fitting” to LEDs also reduces electric consumption.
Pylon signs may also include an electronic message center. The electronic message center serves as changeable advertising for business announcements, sales, events, or other information. A manual change copy center has individual letters which are easily changed by hand. These were a way to advertise to a customer base that passes the place of business on a frequent basis. An electronic message center allows the client to reach out their client base without the need of manually changing letters in the harsh weather environments. We only use Watchfire Electronic message centers due to them being manufactured in the USA, and provide a 5 year warranty.
