Cast Aluminum Plaques
With its exceptionally high resistance to corrosion, Aluminum is an ideal metal for plaques. With 4 standard textures, 45 standard colors and 6 standard borders, you can create a spectacular plaque. You may also add integrated logos, and emblems or even a portrait to really bring your plaque to life. Several mounting options are also available.
Creating ADA-compliant and directional signage that looks like it is part of the project shouldn’t be difficult. That’s why Metallic Arts is offering four-color plaques that will make your creations beautiful additions to any building.
Taking your photograph or supplied art, we will use a computer-driven printer to create fabulous images on a plaque that not only adds a delicious splash of color, but full-blown illustrations that inform, identify and add an upscale sense of style. The paint we use is UV-cured, solvent-free, rigid ink. Once applied to the plaque, the entire piece is powdercoated with a clear topcoat for maximum abrasion resistance and weatherability.
Created from 1/8" thick high-grade 5052 aluminum, these exquisite plaques and markers are solid metal through and through, and can be manufactured with integral ADA-compliant braille.
With more than a century of experience on our side, Metallic Arts is the leader in metal technology. Simply send us your high resolution photo image and we will produce a magnificent 4-color plaque at up to 600 dpi, as large as 38" x 64". These colorful plaques are intended for interior applications, but may be used in certain exterior locations.
Use Metallic Arts Photo-Image Plaques for:
- Government Buildings
- Office Complexes
- Schools & Universities
- Historic Sites
- Or anywhere you can think of!
Cast Aluminum ADA Plaques
Metallic Arts offers premium tactile signage in aluminum, bronze & brass to meet the requirements specified in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
We can cast ADA signs in our standard size (6" x 8") for typical uses, or we can custom-design a sign for your specific needs.
Room numbers, fire escapes, restrooms… Let’s face it; Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) signs are everywhere you look. While there’s no denying these signs are helpful to those in society who need assistance, they also represent an opportunity to increase your business. And, while ADA regulations don’t leave much wiggle room on most design elements, standard ADA signs from Metallic Arts are crafted to meet those guidelines.
For stock plaques, the standard size is 6” x 8” x .25” with Helvetica lettering raised .05” from the background and Grade 2 Braille raised .031”. California Braille is also available. Alternate type styles may be specified on custom ADA signs, but restrictions on styles do apply in meeting ADA specifications. All symbols depicted on ADA signs from Metallic Arts meet standards approved by the Department of Transportation.
Unlike other Braille methods that use separate acrylic or stainless steel beads, our Braille is part of the plaque component so there’s never a worry about the Braille symbols coming loose or falling off. All raised lettering, symbols and borders come with a brushed satin finish. The Braille is painted to match the background. If specified, raised areas can be painted with a color that contrasts with the background. Standard borders are 1/8” wide raised single lines with radius corners. Custom border styles and corners can be specified upon request.
Here at Metallic Arts, our ADA-compliant plaques and signage can help you upgrade your ADA project from a run-of-the-mill sign that points people to the nearest stairwell, to a highly attractive presentation that seamlessly blends in with the style of a building’s overall décor. Don’t pass up an ADA sign job just because you don’t know how to make them – let an attractive, professional-looking plaque from Metallic Arts become part of a building’s experience.
