Katy, TX – Katy Mills Mall Signs Reflect Updated Design | Sign Industry News
It seems in our fast paced world of today that most consumers shop online while the mall’s attendance is suffering. We are very proud to be a preferred sign vendor for Katy Mills mall. They have updated their look to a fresh, modern look that reflects the outlets and local businesses stores. What a great investment to entice consumers back to the relationship shopping that online stores lack.
Our client, Lovisa, is a worldwide brand that offers fashion forward jewelry at ready to wear prices. They were expanding into the Houston and Katy markets and chose Katy Mills mall as their next installment. The scope of the job included installing their pre-fabricated storefront sign. We were already familiar with the regulations from the mall. The scope was adjusted for the additional blade sign requirement and that we would fabricate it ourselves. Here are some of the details of the 2 signs.
The Prefabricated storefront sign was manufactured in China so the components were a little different than our traditional fabrication materials and methods. It was laser cut rear letters with hand formed returns and welded joints. The sign was an internally illuminated 304 marine grade made of polished mirror stainless steel. The illumination was 3700k LED ribbon with 96 LED’s per meter @14.4 watt 12 volts. The primary electrical source was a 120V jacketed cable of 7 amps. The faces were 3mm thick poured resin with a 2mm opal acrylic diffuser. We planned to mount with stainless steel captive nutserts to suit m5 threaded stainless studs affixed with all thread studs, nuts and screws.
The double sided Blade sign was fabricated with a stainless steel frame. The faces were 6mm white acrylic with 15mm black acrylic route cut logo letters affixed on top of the white acrylic with adhesive. We used white LED’s for the illumination. The box trim was 10mm white. We mounted the SS frame to the store front fascia with metal screws and silicone adhesive. The LED transformers were housed inside the galvanized box mounted on the inside wall of the fascia.
With our experienced installers, we can install just about anything! We receive many requests for install only jobs. It is less profit for us when we do not fabricate in house but it is a way to help out another sign company and can be lucrative to form a lasting relationship for repeat business.
