Sign StandOff Caps & Barrels

Sign StandOff Caps & Barrels

Today I’m going to show you how to first
install a simple cap and barrel single-layered system then we’re going
to expand on that by building up this second layer. You’ll see that a dynamic
system like this will get high visibility and another great benefit is
how simply you can change out the graphics or artwork to refresh your
display. So let’s get started. What you’ll need to know when you call
in to place an order is the type of material you’ll be using, its thickness
and the panel sizes, so we can help you determine the weight of the item. Also
important is the mounting surface so we can determine which hardware to use.
After you’ve chosen an approximate location for your display be sure to use
a level and assure your panels are perfectly straight. Here we will use the
holes in our material as the template to mark the wall for our anchors. Use one of
these corner marks from the first template if you’re going to step out to
another layer. Overlap the hole with your previous mark, use your level and then
pencil in the other three holes. Now you have four marks for your first layer and
four marks for the second layer the center mark will anchor and hold both
panels. For lighter weight installs we supply the HD-WB2. This anchor is
driven in with a 5-32 hex bit. Apply steady pressure and the anchor
will drive itself in. It is convenient if your drill motor has a clutch feature,
otherwise, just be careful here not to drive the anchor in too hard. If you do
find a stud in the wall, grip the anchor firmly with pliers or vise grips and
then back the combination screw out. You now have an HD-CBS1 combination screw
they can be driven into solid wood or hollow steel stud. Be sure to use a pilot
hole when using just the combination screw. We have anchors available for almost any
surface and application, be sure to give us a call and we can discuss which
options will be best for your project. Now, with all your studs in place you can
thread on your first layer of barrels. Snug them down by hand. Here we are using the shorter, 1 inch x 1 inch barrel for the first layer. Now we will screw in
all of your threaded studs to your first layer of barrels, or, you can thread the
stud into your cap, then through the material and into the barrel, this may be the preferred method in some cases. These threaded studs vary in length, depending upon your material
thickness and cap and barrel combinations, so we’ll be sure to get you
what you need when you place your order. As a side note, having your material’s hole
size just a little larger than the threaded stud will give you a little
more freedom for aligning your panels. Now tighten up the rest of your caps, and
there you have an installation ready to hold signage and artwork. Keep in mind
your material dimensions are not limited, and larger panels can require more mounting points. For this next step, we will need a longer thread in the center
point to account for the thickness of this standoff spacer, and the material’s
thickness. Screw in the stud and then the spacer, making adjustments as needed. Now, you can thread on your longer
barrels for the second layer, just snug them down. Next, the remaining threaded studs. Now
hang your material. Take another look to make sure everything looks good on the
first layer. Install the upper caps. Level out the material, and then finish off
your display with the rest of your caps. There are few variables that you must
consider when designing custom layered systems, and that is, if you modify this distance, the
thickness of the material, or the number of layers, this distance (where the
outermost panels reach to the wall) may be a custom length barrel. Bear this in mind
when designing a system with multiple layers and make sure to give yourself
some extra time to work with us to ensure we can get you the right
components. Whether it be stock parts such as these, or a custom length barrel.
So give us a call and you’ll find that, with our help, something as complicated as a multiple
layered system, can become a simple, successful install. So thanks for
