We have always been proud supporters of our Electric Sign Trade and have always been proactive in doing what it takes to help preserve our Trade and it's most valued tradition....that being Neon.  

 

Despite the misinformation that has been put out about Neon for decades now, Neon is very much a light/energy efficient light source and the most durable light source we have in our trade over time and we have plenty of case history to support this. 

 

 

WATCH OUT

As most of you may or may not know, there has been a huge shortage of the availability of Glass Neon Housings for Neon....and what has been available has been a lot of Chinese Fake UL Marked (Embossed on the glass) Neon Housings in the market for some time.  

 

They Claim a UL mark, BUT...they aren't a U.L. Recongnized accessory or sign component     .i.e. SSI / "Neo" Glass Housings have no valid listing with fake embossed UL Emblem

 

The biggest complaint for some time has been the threads are terrible and it made tightening at times near to impossible.  The other bad aspect was that the glass walls were too thin, and with just a little bit of heat they were cracking or a incidental drop bump might cause them to crack and break prematurely, some simply cracked on tightening mechanically to a sign body .

 

 

Also, it's bad news if you're a Wholesale Shop or Custom Sign Shop integrating these knock-offs into your signs.  It's passing along a fake listed product and should something happen like a "fire" I can't imagine Insurance Companies will be too happy about the use of a "knock-off"  

 

I've done my best in the past to look for and supply vintage housings that were listed for the Neon Arts and help with keeping that art going with Porcelain or older glass housings which we still do have plenty of (#100's & #300's).  But now we have those hard to get components to keep those awesome Neon Open Faced Channel Letters and Wall Signs going without running into shortages of components or options.

Love the #300 housings. With the open backs you don't get the accumulation of dead bugs, debris and water. Just used them in the restoration of this 22 year old sign. Hard to find but Erik seems to always have them and at a good price.

    • yes, you never know, they maybe interested.
    • Thanks for the info.    Buying up shops eh?  Maybe I'll ask them to buy me out.  After nearly 50 years in this crazy game I wouldn't mind retiring.   
    • I met them yesterday, seems like great guys, they have bought a few companies in NJ, and are looking to expand their network, they are growing,  their company very quickly and seems to be very organized and have a very modern work system.    their offices and shop are very clean, modern and organized, I think you could trust them. 
    • Does anyone know of someone who can hand letter on a brick wall in Phila?    The job was supposed to be lit channel letters, but they now wants to go old-school (very old school) on this location.  it's about 15' to the top of the lettering and a scissor lift can be provided.      Thanks folks!   Rocco
