Description Of Channel Letters Signs

Channel Letters Signs

Channel letters signs, also called pan channel letters, are a kind of illuminated signs that are widely used, both letters and logos can be made into channel letters signs. 3D metal or acrylic signs shells with LEDs inside as light sources. Whether it is indoors or outdoors, it is a widely used business signs with strong three-dimensional effect and good display effect.

The letters of channel letters signs are separated, and each letter can be lit independently. The channel letters signs can provide a high degree of customizability. It can be front lit, side lit, back lit, or even several surfaces glow at the same time.

  • Most of the current channel letters signs use safe LEDs as light sources, so an AC transformer will be used to provide 12VDC power for LEDs. Need to set up electrical junctions in the ceiling near the sign installation position or behind the wall.
  • The brightness of the LED will decrease after about 2-3 years, but this does not mean that the LED cannot be lit. If you feel that the brightness of the logo cannot provide you with a satisfactory display effect, you need to consider replacing the LED. In fact, many of our customers have used the channel letters signs for more than 5 years without replacing anything.
  • The distance between the AC transformer and the channel letters signs needs to be controlled within 5 meters (about 16.4 feet), too far will cause excessive DC voltage loss.
  • The AC transformer is best installed in a weak current box with cooling holes or placed in a place with good ventilation. so that the transformer can dissipate heat normally and increase the service life of the AC transformer.
  • We suggest hiring a professional installer to install the signs, we will provide the wiring diagram and installation notice, so the signs could be installed correctly and quickly.
  • We use the 304 stainless steel for the metal part of the channel letters signs by default, if your area is near the sea, then we will use the 316 stainless steel to build the signs shell, which is marine grade and need not to worry about the rust problem.
  • If it is to be used outdoors and there are frequent heavy rains in the area, we will use the IP67 LED and add water leakage holes at the bottom of the signs shell then do anti-light leakage treatment.

Channel letters signs models

Channel letters signs can be divided into the following models:


Channel letters signs have a good viewing distance. According to experience, there is a certain proportional relationship between the height of a letter and the viewing distance. The viewing distance of a letter is about 100-120 times the height of the letter. For example, a letter with a height of 10cm can be read at a distance of about 10 meters, and a letter with a height of 10 inches can be read at a distance of about 100 feet.


Channel letters signs can be installed in the following ways:

  • Direct Mount: Channel letters signs are mounted directly to the wall by stud bolts, needing drill holes in the wall to install stud bolts and through wires.
  • Raceway installation: Channel letters signs are mounted on the raceway, raceway is a rectangular mounting structure which serves as both a container for the channel letters’ cables, even AC transformer, and a mounting structure. Then the signs and raceway are mounted on the wall as a whole. Compared with direct installation, using raceway installation can make installation easier, because there is no need to drill many holes in the wall. Mostyl, each channel letter has 3 stud bolts and 1 wire, If it is installed directly, it needs to drill 4 holes on the wall. Then for a set of signs to have 10 letters, it needs to drill at least 40 holes, but if it is installed on the raceway, it probably means that 10 holes is enough.
  • Hanging installation: use stainless steel rope or stainless steel round tube to hang from the ceiling, or hang from the bracket.
  • Bracket installation: similar to raceway installation, the signs are installed on the bracket, then the signs and the bracket are installed on the wall together.


As long as the channel letters signs are installed correctly, the maintenance is very simple, just wipe the dust with a soft cloth moistened with clean fresh water, never use organic solvents to clean, especially for signs with plating or paint layers.
