TCL Series - LED Direct-View Signs

TCL Series - LED Direct-View Signs

Class: TCL Series
Sign Use: Exterior
Description: Outdoor Direct-view blank out LED signs

Direct view LED signs show the LEDs in a particular pattern to create the actual message. Extremely versatile, messages can be multicolored, superimposed for multiple messages, and virtually any size you require. Our direct-view LED signs are common in drive-thrus, parking garages, vehicle service bays and other applications where lane control is desired.

Using surface mount LED technology, our LED signs are constructed with super-bright, wide viewing angle LEDs to ensure easy readability, even in direct sun. These energy efficient traffic controllers can lower your maintenance costs with no bulbs to replace, and reduce your energy costs by 90%. The TCL series signs are vibration resistant. The TCL series signs are considered virtually maintenance free for 100,000 + hours even in the most extreme conditions.

LEDs allow for superimposed messages, subsequently reducing the required size of your sign cabinet. For example, an OPEN CLOSED or ATM OPEN CLOSED message sign can now be reduced to one half of its original size by overlaying OPEN and CLOSED. Signs can be single faced or double faced (messages on both sides). Custom messages are available without the associated custom prices. These LED message signs are available with short lead times of one week or less.

TCL Series Options

The TCL series is customizable to your needs. View the chart below to see the list of available options.

Message OptionsTCL Series signs display any message. The message can be in any LED color or combination of LED colors: red, green, blue, amber and white.
Character StylesCustomize the font style, character size, and case. The character size can range from 2.5 inch letters to 20 inches or more, depending on the size of the sign and the length of the message. Each letter can also have multiple lines of LEDs, to make your message bolder. This method is referred to as double-stroke or triple-stroke, and is used for large signs or signs to be seen from a far distance.
GraphicGraphics can help bring more awareness to your message. Graphics include anything from Warning Symbols (e.g. DO NOT ENTER or Handicap Symbols) to shapes like Arrows and Circles.
Double-FacedDouble-faced signs are another customization option that displays a message back-to-back for traffic coming from both directions of the sign. Identical on both sides or different on each side (e.g. "Do Not Enter" | "Entrance"). A double-faced sign can also have multiple messages
Multiple MessagesDisplay multiple messages in any combination of side-by-side, above/below or overlay orientation. Signs with overlaid messages have the capability to display up to 5 different messages to communicate the proper message when necessary.
