Non-Illuminated Letters: Built Up
Built-up letters are created using a variety of methods at Applelec in metal or acrylic. Known as 3D letters or channel letters due to the channel created when a letter face and return are secured together, built-up letters can be illuminated with LEDs from our extensive range of modules.
Built-up letters are created from a choice of flat faced, rim and return, rimless, bevelled and prismatic letter styles. Applelec’s built-up letters are available in Premium metal, Standard metal and acrylic options depending on project requirements and are used for shop signs, display signs, way finding signs and directional signs.
Metal channel letters can be created in a variety of materials with Applelec offering aluminium built-up letters, stainless steel built-up letters, copper built-up letters, brass built-up letters and titanium built-up letters with a wide range of material styles including satin, polished and brushed finishes and RAL or British Standard (BS) paint processes.
Built-up letter returns are created efficiently at Applelec with our automated return shaper, Delilah. Used to shape the returns used in the construction of our built-up letters, Delilah accurately shapes letters in seconds, leaving just the addition of a metal flat cut letter face needed. Applelec can supply built-up letters at this raw stage if required.
