Front Lit channel letters are the most common letter configuration. As the title implies, this letter type emits illumination only from the front (face) of the letters. Front lit letters are also called “standard” channel letters.
Reverse Lit channel letters emit illumination only from the back of the letters. Reverse lit channel letters have sealed faces, and the illumination forms behind these letters. Reverse channel letters are also called “halo lit” letters.
Front/Back Lit letters produce illumination from both the front and back of the letters, giving them a dynamic and dramatic appearance.
Open Face channel letters are less common but can have a spectacular impact in the right location. Open Face letters are open only at the face.
Mounting Channel Letters
Whatever your choice in channel letter types, they are typically installed two ways:
Flush Mounted: These channels letters are attached directly to the façade of the building. Each letter has 3-5 holes to secure the stud that hold up the letter and the power wire. Installers must be able to access the backside of the installation wall.
Raceway or Wire Way Mounted: Here, the channel letters are affixed to a rectangular structure called a “raceway.” The raceway is then mounted to the building. Raceway mounting has the advantage of drilling fewer holes in the building and less time on installation saving you $.
