A shining beacon
Acting as a shining beacon to visual culture, illuminated signage for the National Media Museum supplied by M4 UK and Applelec, is now glowing brightly across Bradford City Centre.
To deliver maximum visibility to the museum’s identity signage, the lettering features LED illumination with a kick. Installed at elevation, it uses key construction techniques to intensify light output and ensure the National Media Museum’s logo is visible across the city.
The sign, which is 15 metres in length, uses Applelec’s fabricated 850mm-high letters that are face illuminated with a double line of high brightness SloanLED V Series modules, while the interior of each built-up letter was painted in satin white, to further aid light reflection.
The sign fixing system was particularly heavy duty and an anchored stainless steel Hilti bolt was used to secure each letter firmly into position, while a cable tray was fitted inside the building to protect all LED wiring and produce a neat and secure finish.
Despite the scale and brightness of the sign, it is highly energy efficient, with the SloanLED modules and power supplies, which were also supplied by Applelec, drawing just 450W in total.
The National Media Museum lettering is the second project completed for the Science Museum Group by M4 UK who previously worked on signage for the National Railway Museum.
