System Features & Design
The beauty of Charleston Manufacturing, LLC architectural signage systems are their inherent versatility. Utilizing modular components, the systems can be adapted to virtually any signage application ranging from monolithic designs to interior wall-mounted directories. The Charleston Manufacturing, LLC systems offer design integrity, aesthetic quality and remarkable economy.

Charleston Manufacturing, LLC maintains a complete in-house paint facility. As a result, we are able to offer single source responsibility and a high level of quality control. In addition, our color matching capabilities are without equal. We take pride in providing full color matching services, usually in a week or less.

Our standard paint finish is an acrylic polyurethane, the most recognized coating for quality, brilliance and longevity in architectural signage systems. 6063 T5 aluminum extrusions are mechanically pre-treated, primed and electrostatically painted.

The finish is then baked on in an oven-accelerated air-dry system. The resulting hard, slick surface makes it impact resistant and able to withstand exposure to most solvents and chemicals as well as heavy traffic or abuse. In addition, the finish maintains

its "just painted" look years after exposure to sun, salt, and corrosive industrial environments.

Beyond our standard acrylic paint finish, Charleston Manufacturing, LLC can also provide anodized, Kynar 500® or other premium coatings as required. Please call us directly with your inquiries.

All posts and frames are manufactured from heavy duty 6063 T5 aluminum extrusions produced to Aluminum Association standards. Standard sign panels are supplied in .063 to .125 aluminum. Acrylic, fiber glass, Lumasite® or polycarbonate panels may also be specified.

There are a number of ways for a sign to effectively convey the proper graphic image. Charleston Manufacturing, LLC employs state of the art graphics equipment and technology. This allows the architect/specifier the freedom to choose from a number of processes for producing a graphic image. Some of the processes used by Charleston Manufacturing, LLC include:

  • Applied vinyl copy
