More about Letter tracking for changeable letters.
To create a channel for your letters you will require 2 pieces of tracking. One for the top and the other for the bottom. Letter tracking for changeable letters are necessary for your letter tiles to sit in. The tracking is available in 50cm sections, so if you require 20 metres, you will receive 40 separate pieces. Moreover, they are conveniently interlocked in blocks. Simply remove tape, slightly bend the tracks and they will separate easily.
Tracking is available in white or clear, but white tracks are considered more resilient for outdoor and are less prone to water stains and general UV damage.
If you need your Sign outdoors try our double tracking which will allow you to use a weatherproof screen. We recommend 2mm perspex to be used for your screens. Perspex is widely available, however, we would recommend using an online company, that offers rounded corners.
We have a tracking checker diagram on the site, making calculating how much tracking you need very simple. Try it here.
Once you have chosen your desired letter size, a cardboard template will be dispatched with your order which makes applying tracks a simple task. Importantly, you will need to get the tracks the correct distance apart.
Spare tracking will always be included and this allows you to test the tracks on your chosen surface. Workshop glue is available to buy on the site.
If you plan to create your own outdoor sign using our tracking and letters, consider riveting the tracks onto a metal board. However we offer a bespoke sign making service which means a fully prepared sign can be delivered to you. Furthermore, this can include both weather shields and tamper proofing devices, meaning your letters are protected from both UV damage and wondering hands!
