Building Identification: Channel Letters

Channel letters are normally formed from either aluminum or plastic. Either the front or the back of the letters is a rigid translucent material (usually acrylic). The letters are normally illuminated with neon or LEDs housed within each letter. They may be mounted directly to a store fascia or wall (with wiring, transformers, etc. hidden behind the wall) or . alternatively, they are mounted to a long shallow box (called a raceway) which contains the electrical components. The raceway is then mounted to the wall or fascia. Letters are completely customized in style, color, size, etc.
