City Codes and Ordinances to Consider When Installing a New Digital LED Sign

When installing a New Digital LED Sign you must take into consideration and be aware of all of the local city ordinance and codes which will affect the installation of your sign.  Not fully understanding these codes can cause permit denial, delays and other potential issues.

Some of the issues you should take into consideration are:

  • Are LED Signs allowed?
  • Is there a maximum or minimum height requirement?
  • Are the signs required by law to be a certain distance from the main road?
  • Specific sign construction requirements (For instance some cities may not approve certain materials or types of construction within their jurisdiction)
  • Specific Message Restrictions (Such as restrictions on animations and transitions, required hold time between slides or messages, brightness, ect)

How To Survey Your Existing Sign and Other Common Issues To Think About Before Breaking Ground On a New Electronic LED Marquee Sign

Purchasing an Electronic LED Marquee in many cases is a big decision and like any big decision you need to make sure that you do the proper research and take a few things into consideration.

To help us in creating and choosing a sign for your location one of the first things you will want to do is to do a site survey of the location.  To do a site survey you do not need any special 'surveying' tools, all you will need is pen and paper, measuring tape, and a camera.  When dealing with an existing structure it is critical to measure the distance from the sign to the street or right-of-way.  In many cases it is better to raze the existing structure and start fresh with a new pole or monument LED sign.  Another important element is the traffic speed and the viewing distance.
You also want to determine how much information you want readers to see as they drive by.  This will help in determining the size, pitch and number of lines for the Electronic sign.  If you want to show only text, then a higher pitch sign is fine.  However, if you plan on using pictures, animation and graphics, a tighter pitch sign would fit your needs better.
