Signs of the Times - January 2017 - 16
The City of Oceanside, CA recently replaced its 50-year-old harbor sign with a new one formed from 96-in.-high letters
constructed from King ColorCore® (North Port, FL) engravable polymer sheets. Public Safety Industries LLC (San Clemente, CA) fabricated the letters, which city crews installed on existing foundations.
Rick Wilson, Public Safety Industries' owner, said he routed the letters into 0.75-in. thick, 4 x 8-ft. King ColorCore blue
over white, multi-layer polymer substrates, which created white letters on the blue field. The 8 x 8-ft. letter size required
two boards per letter. Wilson joined the two faces by cutting horizontal lap joints and binding them with stainless steel
screws. The City of Oceanside mounted the letters on marine-grade plywood before installing them onto the existing
framework, which includes concrete foundations and diagonal back supports. The city also purchased and arranged the
installation of the signs' LED luminaires.
King ColorCore's high-impact polymer sheets are available in 18 color combinations and are environmentally stable
and FDA approved.
