Innovative. It’s a word used quite often in the sign industry but what constitutes something that is truly innovative? The true definition is something that features new methods that are advanced and original. That’s exactly what the L&H Flush Mount Panel System is….a new method that is original, eco-friendly, and advanced for directional signage.
Recently, the Reading Health System, now Tower Health, contracted L&H Companies for the complete exterior/interior signage and wayfinding package at their main hospital and offsite locations. For the directional signage portion, L&H Companies fabricated a new flush mount panel system. Also, working with Cloud Gehshan, the design firm on this project, a design concept was established that pushed new limits to incorporate the modern system.
This system uses a specific milling and cutting method, uniquely designed by L&H Companies Engineering Team, allowing for the top panel to be fastened with two almost invisibly small screws at the bottom which hold the panel in place. We use this innovative method to mount the panel flush to face without using any adhesives or permanent connection devices so all mounting fasteners are hidden.
The ingenuity about this system is it’s easily changeable and allows for the entire front panel to be removed and updated without difficulty. The old panel gets sent back to L&H Companies’ stock to be repurposed later, making it environmentally friendly. Also, onsite facilities can very easily remove the screws and install the new panel.
Another significant feature is that updates can be easily changed without error. A traditional slat directory over time can get the typography wrong when updated several years later. The end result looking poorly because the updated lines don’t match the original font style in the other slats. Our new system has consistent typography because the entire panel is reprinted, ensuring a clean constant look. Lastly, the typography on the sign doesn’t require any unique treatment because it’s high resolution digital or screen printed producing a super clean final sign.
This product is limitless in design and can be created in almost any size to be used on a wall or ceiling directional sign. It’s a functional system that is aesthetically pleasing allowing designers to create a unique design for their client in almost any shape, typography, or color. They’ll have the ability to originate a sign system that is truly innovative.
