UL Certified GemLite letters are produced with a two-part construction – faces and cans. Both components are formed with UV stable, CAB plastic that has been certified by UL for lit letters. Face lit letters are produced with a translucent material that is custom designed for LED lighting. Typical backs are formed in white to better reflect the LED lights. LEDs are secured to the backs with double faced tape and special hold down blocks. Average letter depths are recommended to be 2”-2-1/2”deep with a minimum stroke of around 1-1/4”.

Steel backs are laser cut to fit within the inside of the return. This is not a perfect "puzzle" fit–but is close. "L" brackets are glued to the inside return of the can. The steel is attached to the "L" bracket in 1 of 2 ways: 1. Loose tacked (welded) which is not removable. 2. Holes drilled through steel to allow for pan head screw into "L" bracket. Both methods have holes drilled for mounting studs. Backs are available raw, finished or painted steel. Steel backs are recessed slightly to allow screw heads to be flush with back of letter.

Holes and bosses in bottom/top to receive threaded studs. Letters over 12" will require our "Engineered Stud". Rounded letters will require some flattening. This method can only be selected on letters with a Lexan or steel back. Tie-backs (not included) are recommended for a safe installation on letters over 8”. (view drawing)
