How to Install an Standoff Sign

3.18.2015

Brent Thompson, Production manager w/ Heritage Custom Signs & Displays demonstrates his method on how to install a standoff lobby sign.

  1. Brent begins with a cardboard template he made the same size of his sign, it has pilot holes in it for accurate alignment.
  2. Use masking tape and tape the template to the wall then use a level or tape measure to ensure the sign will be straight.
  3. Mark the wall thru the pre-drilled holes and remove the template.
  4. Drill a small pilot hole in the sheetrock, then insert a heavy duty wall mount into the wall, this will hold the standoff mount securely to the wall.
  5. Insert a screw into one of the metal standoffs and fasten it to the heavy duty wall mount. Repeat to the remaining wall mounts.
  6. Clean the back of the sign, once secured to the wall it can’t be reached unless it is removed.
  7. Insert a top mount to your sign and screw it into the metal standoff. Repeat with the remaining standoffs.
