Museum Signage Systems
*Made in USA
*Adds descriptive surface to Art Barriers
These signage plate adapters are purpose-built to work with the 16"H and 24"H Barrier range and will provide a robust display for artwork or directional information that can be fitted to an existing upright.
The adapters are both 45 Degrees but are offered in 2 different types to accommodate the 2 types of sign plates.
Adapter AS-SSCS comes with a smaller plate and has high strength double sided adhesive to allow our smaller label holder range to be attached to it. This includes frames that measure 4x6, 6x6, 6x8, and others. A simple rule of thumb is if the label holder doesn't have end strips then choose AS-SSCS.
Adapter AS-SSCL comes with a larger 4x4 plate and has a set screw to allow our larger signage plate range to be attached to it via their slotted system. This includes frames that measure 8 ½, 11, and 16 inches High. A simple rule of thumb is if the Signage plate has end strips then choose AS-SSCL.
When choosing the size of Label Holder to work with the Signage Adapter, be sure that it is large enough to allow the information to be read easily without stooping.
The Barrier Signage Adapter is produced in stainless steel and has slots that allow it to be used at any point on a run of barriers without interrupting the cord.
*Signage plates and signage adapter caps sold separately.

The groove that holds the acrylic is 0.090 (90 thousandths) deep and the standard acrylic we are using is 0.065 (65 thousandths) thick. This leaves 0.025 (25 thousandths) for paper, standard paper is 0.004 (4 thousandths) thick. Typically, I suggest 100 LB text paper because it’s a good all-around thickness and its readily available. If you want something thicker or want to use textured paper stocks, the thickest paper we recommend is 10 pt cover. Photo paper is always a good option as the print fidelity can be improved.
Standard print media used for these panels is simple printer paper and it generally returns favorable results. Sign Media can be made in a variety of other ways such as direct print on 0.06 (1mm) thick Sintra instead of using the acrylic. Vinyl wrap over 0.06 or 0.08 Dibond panel (ACM) or the acrylic panel supplied.
