It is important to have signage experts visit your business in order to determine the best location, signage type, system, and materials that will resist any unpredictable surprise weather can bring. Especially, in areas such as Colorado, where severe storms arrive every year. At BSC Signs, our professional staff will perform extensive research on your needs and possibilities. This way we can come up with the best combination of materials, weight, resistance, flexibility, and other features that will make your outdoor signage an effective, eye-striking, safe, and long-lasting advertising tool.

As a business owner, it is important to find a location where your sign is extremely visible, but away from extreme heat and prolonged direct sunlight. On the other hand, too much shade can backfire, as wind could break tree branches or excessive debris, damaging your sign.

Make it Safe

Professional sign technicians will also determine the best height and position, regarding the weight of the sign, so it is installed with proper elements and supports. This way, no matter the situation, your outdoor signage will be safe for your customers and staff. Not having an outdoor sign mounted correctly could, under extreme conditions, loosen damaging private property or even worse, hurting someone.

Proper and regular scheduled maintenance can help to avoid unfortunate events during heavy storms. BSC Signs can perform a maintenance visit to make sure your signage structure stays in optimal conditions. If after a heavy storm you notice any signs of deterioration on your outdoor signage, it is vital to secure the area and contact a technician to take care of the situation immediately.

Powered Up

Some business owners believe that it is better to unplug their digital signage during extreme weather events or heavy storms. However, it is better to keep the EMC or digital signage running. First of all, advanced technology in EMC signs is designed to prevent damages resulting from problems with downed power lines.

Also, the heat generated by the digital signage system helps prevent condensation from forming inside the cabinet, providing that power is not disrupted for an extended period of time. It is also recommended to avoid covering the LED face. Doing it can actually cause damage to the LEDs, as it inhibits ventilation.

Public Safety Collaboration

Digital signage can provide an important social benefit to public safety during severe storms, working as a means of emergency announcements. You can easily and safely control remotely your digital sign, keeping local residents informed of the situation.

As you can see EMC and digital signs are excellent outdoor options that can provide a wide range of benefits for a long time. Contact BSC Signs today and learn everything you wish to know about digital signage.
