University challenge

Within a six-week time frame, A D Bell Sign Systems created new signage that involved face-illuminated built-up metal letters supplied by Applelec to coincide with the change in name of Leeds Metropolitan University to Leeds Beckett University and the first day of enrolment of the new intake of students.

The built-up letters were constructed in a rim-and-return style with white opal acrylic faces illuminated with SloanLED VL Plus modules. The brief was to create impactful signage with a classic and timeless feel in order to reflect the 190-year history of the university.

With simple white illumination and a subtle colour template, the desired impact was achieved due to the sheer scale of each letter, which exceeds 1.5 metres in height. Powder-coated in silver and featuring large white faces, the signage is equally effective when non-illuminated during the daytime as it is when illuminated at night.

With signs as large as those now installed, each letter required its own power supply, fed back to two purpose-built wiring enclosures where each letter is clearly labelled to assist future maintenance work. Featuring built-up back trays, each letter was secured to the building façade using a chemical resin anchor.
