      Utopia™ LED S14 series of lamps are not only built to operate in the demanding conditions of signs, marquees and amusement rides, but they are also uniquely designed to provide an appearance that replicates traditional incandescent lamps. Utopia lamps do all of this while saving up to 80% in energy costs.

      The Utopia LED S14 lamps use special AC LEDs which allow them to operate with fewer electrical components. This reduces the number of potential points of failure, providing you with a more reliable product. This higher level of reliability is especially important in hard to change applications. These dimmable LED lamps consume only 2 watts of power and are able to be cycled and flashed. Their life is rated for up to 50,000 hours, and they’re approved for wet location operation.

      USHIO is proud to stand behind these energy-saving LED lamps with a 5-year warranty. The Utopia LED S14 lamps come in E26 medium base with warm white color (2700K). These LED S14 lamps are available in clear, frost, red, green, blue, and yellow.

    • Thanks for all the responses!  Even you Eddie, your contribution is priceless...    Dave, that is great to hear that you are in a position to give back to your community by passing on your knowledge!  I hope some day to be knowledgeable enough and experienced enough to mentor others.   My biggest struggle is finding new customers.  I have some great return customers both local and nationally but in order to see the growth I would like I need to find how to reach a very select customer, national sign companies doing installs in Colorado.  I did not have any prior experience in sign sales prior to starting my install company and have done well finding my way but am eager to see more growth soon. 
    • Sign Installers Wanted This position will consist of installing illuminated and non-illuminated signage.

    • Tell them to take a hike.    We were sent a job like that once with a new plate for a 2,500lb sign 55ft up.  When I questioned the PM she said any good welder could just cut the old plate off and weld on the new one (no gussets).  I dug my heels in and demanded to have a spud insert with donuts, said no way.  Well after that I asked to talk to the engineer and wa-la I got just what I wanted.
    • I agree.  Sounds like they don't know what they're doing, or their processes are flawed.  A good PM will make sure a job is set up for success.  Something that takes an hour in the shop takes 4 out in the field.  Also, I'm sure they're focused on maximizing profit, but bulk manufacturing base plates seem short sighted when they could reduce their filed labor by setting you up for success.     You should send them a video of you torching off the old plate and re-wiring the sign.  Then send her a T&M invoice matching the time on the video.  Probably won't get paid, but you'll make your point.
    • Let me guess, the national starts with the letter "P"..........anything over 150 square feet always gets a new match plate with them, welded in place with new gussets. Photographs at 360 degrees all around showing all 3 pass welding completed to specs....   Honestly they are just covering themselves liability wise......they don't want to assume that the existing plate is to specs, install a new sign on it and the thing have issues later.   You just have to bid it in the work, with the additional work needed, see if it still is worthwhile to you to complete. Torching, beveling and welding in a new match plate correctly with the series of photographs is going to take several hours.....   But consider it a lesson to carefully read all the bid forms you are signing, could have been a contract and you would have been in a real bind.
