Coral Gables Art Cinema Sign

American Tropical Signs & Services fabricated and installed this eye-catching powder coated sign at Coral Gables Art Cinema in Coral Gables, Florida.  It consists of two aluminum panels, mounted on two 3” by 3” square tubing.  For depth, the logo was custom – made in formed plastic and the back panel was placed to cover the back of the letter’s attachments.  What makes this exterior sign distinct is its finish.  A powder coated painted sign  provides a robust finish to the surface and acts like armor against scratching, corrosion, fading and wearing.  Powder Coating Paint is the fastest growing finishing process in the country because unlike other metal finishing techniques that depend on chemicals and solvents,  uses electrically charged pigments.  The result is a beautiful uniform coating that withstand the most rigorous exterior conditions.

Our  satisfied client says

It looks beautiful, exactly how we imagined it, and your two staff members did a great job of installing down to every detail. We love it! :)
