One way to get routed signs is by using a hand held router. Although, a hand held router produces beautiful signs using wood, metal and other hard materials, they can be slow. In this fast-paced world of business and competition, you need your sign or signs fast. For a sign company like Connecting Signs, we want equipment that produces fast and high quality results to meet our customers’ needs. A CNC router will do just that. These type of routers are controlled by a computer, which uploads all the design information in the machine. A CNC router typically produces consistent, high quality work – improving productivity. For production that is repeated over and over, a CNC router is the only way to go. Automation and precision are the key benefits! The same thing applies to engraved signs. Routed & Engraved signs can be made accurate, repeatable, and cost effective in considerable less time than doing by hand.
Types of signs:
- Routed out signs (indoor or outdoor)
- Engraved (creates a hand chiseled look)
- Engraved tags
- Cutout letters and graphics
- Intricate logos
- 3D letters
- Custom ADA compliant signs meeting government regulations
Complying with the ADA
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires all commercial facilities (which include any building open to the public) to accommodate the special needs of individuals with disabilities by removing physical and communication barriers. This means that buildings such as hospitals, government buildings, public and private schools, transportation terminals, hotels, restaurants, and manufacturing facilities must meet ADA requirements in terms of signage design and installation.
There are companies familiar with the ADA and that can help your firm conform to the regulations. Keep in mind that while there are costs involved with ADA compliance, the government also provides ADA-specific tax refunds for businesses.
Materials that can be routed and engraved:
- Metal (stainless steel and aluminum)
- Sign foam
- Routing is a high speed process of cutting, trimming, and shaping wood, metal, plastic, and a variety of other materials.
- Sign engraving is the process of removing material from a substrate, leaving indentations that form letters or graphics.
