The Sign Authority fabricated and installed this custom electrical building sign for Swagelok in Glendale Heights, IL . Chicago Fluid System Technologies is an authorized Swagelok sales and service center. They offer products and services to diminish procurement, installation and operation costs connected with fluid systems. Their products range from tube fittings, valves, regulators and energy services. They are a one-stop-shop for all fluid system needs. This cusom back-lit sign was installed on the outside of their building in Glendale Heights.

We have done a lot of work in the past for Chicago Fluid Systems with the Swagelok brand. They gave us a call and wanted to replicate a sign that was installed in another facility in a different state. They sent us a photo of the sign without and specifications and The Sign Authority was able to re-create the sign down to the last detail. They described the sign as being back-lit and edge lit. We did a site survey and were able to determine the size needed for the sign. We then created drawings for the sign and submitted them to the client for approval. We used their corporate logo and colors to assure the proper brand identity.

This sign was constructed from aluminum with an edge or lip around the edge to create the edge lighting they requested. The “S” logo in the center was also back-lit. When this sign is lit up an night it is quite stunning. The simplicity of the sign creates a dramatic entrance to their building.

If you are looking to replicate another sign from one of your facilities in another location, we can help. If you have an EPS file of your logo and a photo of the other sign we can create drawings to build your new sign. It is always better to have more information than less, so if you have additional sign specifications to send us, we can sort them out. Our years of experience in building custom signs will translate in building your custom signage.
