Neon Safety: Neon Sign Assembly

July 17, 2017 3 min read

If you’ve purchased a neon sign, then by the time it arrives at your chosen delivery address it should already be assembled and you should be able to just plug the sign in and admire its alluring neon glow. However, when it comes to choosing the right location to place it, you may need to take some safety considerations into account. As such, here are some key points you should be aware of when deciding on where to place your neon sign.

Choosing the right space for your neon sign

There really is no better way to catch someone’s eye than with a stunning neon sign that’s made just for you, so whether you’re looking to install it in your living room or on the outside of your business premises; you can be sure that it will be an attraction to all! When choosing the right space for your neon sign, though, you should first consider whether you will use it for domestic or commercial purposes. Next, you should think about where you would like to place it, as you may like to mount it on a wall or encase it to serve as a standalone piece.

Domestic

If you’re looking to purchase a neon sign, it’s only natural that you would want to flaunt it for all to see in the most prominent room of your home, such as the living room or kitchen. Moreover, when activated, it will actually be harder for people to miss than see! In any case, over the years, neon signs have become a popular fixture in the home and have featured as an interior design trend numerous times in recent years.

When looking to add a neon sign into your home, carefully consider where you would like to place it and how this can be achieved, as your most preferred place may not be the most practical. As such, since neon signs are electrical items, the utmost safety should be taken when implementing into your home.

Safety Tip

When adding a neon sign into your home, you should look to allow for plenty of space to ensure that it receives a good amount of air circulation around it. If you would like to mount your neon sign onto a wall, then you should consult an experienced professional. 

Commercial

Neon signs have been used for commercial purposes for decades and have become synonymous with some of the world’s most enticing places to visit. This use, though, certainly hasn’t remained a thing of the past and the use of neon signs by businesses has truly proliferated in the modern era. A plethora of businesses regularly use neon products to formulate their brand identity, whilst also drawing customers in with maximum impact.

Safety Tip

When using inside to advertise your business, ensure that you allow for plenty of space around the sign to prevent accidental damage. It’s also a good idea to encase the product to further protect it from damage. When placing outside, you should consider how weathering conditions may affect the performance and place out of reach of passers by.

Wall Mounting

Mounting a neon sign onto a wall is possibly one of the safest locations to place it, as it will be generally out of the way When looking to mount your neon sign directly onto a wall, you should discuss this with the manufacturer regarding details of a professional neon sign installer. Not only that, but you should first look to obtain the dimensions of the neon product so that you can be sure your chosen place can accommodate it and is close to a mains power supply.

Encasing

If you’ve purchased a neon sign with a case, then when delivered, it should already come within the case or fixed to a panel ready to operate. However, if you have purchased a neon sign that doesn’t already come encased, and you have decided that you would now like to encase it, then you should speak to the manufacturer to see whether this is possible.

Summary

In short, when looking to use a neon sign for domestic or commercial purposes, many of the considerations are the same. However, for commercial uses, it’s likely that it will be exposed to more people at any one time than would be for a sign that’s used for domestic purposes. In any case, when looking to assemble into your home or place of work, you should take safety precautions to prevent damage or potential injury.
