SIGNgineer beam

SIGNgineer beam Fabrication Guide:  

Parts List: 

1.   Top dog house
0.040 aluminum - cut 1 1/2" less desired width
3.   1"x1"x1/8" aluminum square tube- cut  3 1/4" less desired
4.   0.090aluminum sheet - cut 4 5/8" less desired width
5.   2"x2"x1/8" aluminum retainer
6.   SIGNgineer beam without retainer
7.   SIGNgineer beam with retainer
8.   NOTSHOWN:  2" saddle and corner angles - cut 2" less 
      desired cabinet width

Mount 2" retainer to SIGNgineer beam without retainer then determine size of cabinet and cut SIGNgineer to size.  (NOTE:  Make frame 1" oversize to accomodate flourescent lamps)


First, match up all perimeter SIGNgineer pieces and mark for cross over supports, corner angles and saddles prior to fitting .090 sheet metal.  Fit .090 sheet metal into SIGNgineer groove as shown, square ends and tack weld to  SIGNgineer beam.   (Note:  make sure that 1" supports are not adjacent to lamp socket locations)   Outside of SIGNgineer should remain off until all other componets are tacked in place.  Slide SIGNgineer beams together.

Place precut 1" square tubes in desired positions, maximum of 40" on center.  1" aluminum tube act as lamp supports for wide span and may be used to mount ballasts while providing structual strength for the sign cabinet.  Cut raceway metal to size and fit appropriately.

Mount ballast to 1" aluminum square tube.  Mount dog house to ballast and wire as required.  Note bullt in wireway on SIGNgineer as shown above in photo to right.



Benefits of SIGNgineer beams:

Easily expand sign cabinets to any width with ease - 3.25" to 48"+.

Use with standard aluminum components- no complicated assembly or special parts to buy.  Eight basic components fit together to form the cabinet- quick and easy.

Built in wire way makes installation of lamps and ballasts quick and simple.

Use with single or double faced sign cabinets.  Plastic or Flex faces!

Clean, flawless finished look!  No visible welds on exterior cabinet.
