Due to the rising cost of electricity and the emphasis on sustainability, the demand for neon signs and flashing marquees is waning. Advertisers and establishment owners are finding economical and attractive alternatives to ensure their businesses are still getting noticed. By integrating plastic into the design of channel letters, manufacturers have been able to produce energy efficient and maintenance-free letters designed to withstand the elements while maintaining an attractive look.
Unlike their metal counterparts, plastic-based (Acrylic and Polycarbonate) channel letters offer a lightweight solution for a safer and easier to install final product. Plastic channel letters offer break -resistant properties and can effectively hide and distribute hot spots from the source of light. Available in multiple standard and custom colors, Piedmont Plastics stocks a large inventory of plastics used in the production of channel letters.
