Brushed aluminum is a widely popular office sign material for many reasons. It’s subtle in design yet lends an overall striking look to any professional setting. Aluminum is a budget-friendly option to go for, and it can be cut and created into many customizable shapes and sizes. Here’s what you need to know about brushed aluminum office signs and how it can produce a stunning addition to your professional business setting.
Brushed Metal for Polished Look
When one thinks of metal, they tend to imagine a shiny and gaudy finish. In a professional setting, perhaps one does not want that flashy, high-shine look. Brush aluminum is a modern and tasteful alternative for office signs. Up close, brushed aluminum has been buffed to a grain to tone down its reflective quality. What’s left is a finish that is both industrial and refined. The satin-like finish retains enough shine to catch your customer’s attention while retaining a polished and subtle pattern. Of course, this also depends on the size and shape of your sign design.
As a wall graphic or ever-popular dimensional letters, brushed aluminum can be cut into custom shapes or etched with various designs. The impact of your sign design varies with the size and placement of your brushed metal sign. A smaller office signs like a plaque can indicate the entryway to a department or wing of your building, while larger designs are installed in lobbies or near the outdoor entrance. Make your sign really stand out by mounting it on studs in front of a dark background for contrast.
Easy to Clean
Cleaning and maintaining aluminum signs are simple. Use a soft cloth, dampened with soapy water, to gently wipe away any grimy buildup. Then, absorb the excess moisture entirely with another clean cloth. In most cases, periodically wiping it with a dry cloth or going over the sign with a dust trapper will work fine. Aluminum does not rust but can corrode. While not likely to deteriorate any time soon in an indoor environment, be mindful that moisture can cause oxidation and corrosion marks to form in the long run.
