A raceway mounted sign is defined by the kind of mounting unit that it uses. A raceway mount is a type of structure that not only affixes the sign to its base, usually an exterior wall, but also houses all of the electrical components of the sign. The raceway mount acts as a two-in-one component in this sense; it mounts the sign to the wall surface and it holds all the electrical wiring and the transformer required to illuminate the sign. The signs that appear on raceway mounts are often channel letters because they stand out and give a full-bodied look to the sign.
Raceway mounted signs provide excellent visibility. They are often rather large so as to be seen from a distance. Because raceway mounted signs are illuminated, they can still generate impressions at night, in the rain, in the fog, and other inclement weather. Illumination is a great advantage for a sign because it makes it more visible but the wiring required is an added complication. You don’t want wires exposed to the elements for prolonged periods of time. The raceway mount keeps all of the electrical work sheltered so you don’t have to worry about that. Plus, the mount keeps your sign secured in place, even when exposed to strong winds.
