Entera manufactures five distinct signage products: channel letters, back-lit letters, pylon signs, monument signs, and electronic display systems. In addition, Entera offers total customer packages which include an array of signage products custom tailored to meet the demands of a diverse range of businesses.
Channel Letters are individually illuminated letters and graphics. These letters are found everywhere, from shopping malls to exterior storefront identification. There are three types of channel letters:
- The most common type is Standard Channel Letters. These letters are made up of a U-channel base, with colored Plexiglas faces.
- Reverse Channel Letters are have metal faces and
returns (sides of letters) and have a clear plastic backing.
These letters are designed to be mounted an inch or two
away from the wall. At night, these letters create a halo-lit
- The third type of Channel Letters are ones with "open"
faces. Though not actually open, the faces of these letters
are clear plastic with the balance of the letters built
just like Standard Channel Letters. This allows for the
raw neon to be seen, as well as the inside of the U-channel
letterform itself. Open Face Channel Letters are
very effective for aggressively grabbing attention.
Back-Lit Letters are individual letters and graphics that are
illuminated from a source that is located behind the letters.
The usage of back lighting creates a halo effect around the
letters and adds increased visibility and attractiveness.
Pylon signs are an effective way to provide advance notice of the location of a business or to feature a business name or logo. It is very common to see pylon signs on or near main streets. Manufactured of aluminum & steel, the structures are made for long term usage. With signage, as with many other business investments, initial cost may not reflect long term value. A properly designed sign can effectively communicate for many years.
Monument signs are free-standing signs constructed on the ground with a continuous footing or foundation and a base at grade level. Most communities have tight restrictions on the specifications for monument signs, making it imperative to engage knowledgeable professionals in the manufacturing and installation of monument signage. Entera has the knowledge and experience necessary to ensure proper compliance for every company's monument signage needs.
Electronic display systems
display systems utilize digital media to display information.
The use of electronic display systems has rapidly increased
due to their ability to display information rapidly, fluidly
and in a more esthetically pleasing manner. Electronic displays
are often utilized by companies needing to communicate large
amounts of information, such as airports, bus terminals, and
stadiums. However, their use has also increased rapidly in mainstream
commerce. Despite a larger initial cost, electronic displays
have an exceptional ROI based on their programmability and adaptability.
