What are the Different Types of LED School Signs?
Schools often use a myriad of different sign styles to engage their communities, and parents and communities across the nation are getting creative with their signs. Each sign is completely different and helps dynamically connect unique communities. It is important to know the types of signs to establish the best option for your community.
Outdoor LED Signs:
Can be used for anything from simple text messages to high definition, full-color animations. Elementary, Middle, Secondary, and Post-secondary schools all implement LED displays specific to their community’s needs.
Changeable Letter Signs:
Schools where LED displays are not permissible often focus on changeable letter signs as a way to reach their communities and keep them engaged in school activities. Letter signs can often be used to provide a long term economical fix where dynamic messaging is not the school’s focus.
Light Box Signs:
Also known as Identification signs or cabinet signs, these can be used to be sure the community identifies the campus clearly. These are often internally illuminated. LED illumination should be used as fluorescent bulbs are a higher expense when electronic consumption and frequent replacements are taken into consideration. Polycarbonate is a cost-effective upgrade to the traditional acrylic due to durability, and full digital prints allow for highly detailed graphics.
Indoor LED Signs:
LED Walls are now becoming extremely popular due to newer technology that allows for more attainable price points. Schools are engaging with their student body in visually demanding ways thanks to these flexible displays and the content capabilities that come with them. However, longevity and ease of use should be considered when establishing expectations. Definitions can range from 6mm to 0.2mm.
Also known as masonry style signs, these signs are devoted to preserving a traditional appeal specific to some communities and their aesthetic. The materials used are durable and highly flexible, allowing for integrated signs with highly variable textures and architectural elements. LED displays, cabinet signs, and changeable letter displays have all been integrated with these designs to provide a traditional look with modern capabilities.
Athletic departments nationwide are implementing LED displays and scoreboards in ways that were once thought unattainable for schools. Modern scoreboard technology and software solutions allow for very economical scoreboards to become dynamic and engaging fundraising tools for schools to take advantage of.
