Quality shouldn’t be lost with size
At KEMP London there are no size limitations to worry about. We can create large neon signs to be the centrepiece of an exhibition, stage show, or store front. Alternatively we can make smaller ones if there are spatial constraints to worry about. We never let the size compromise the quality and impression the signs will make.
Whatever your ideas we are confident we can effectively translate them into a beautiful neon sign that is the perfect size for your needs. The crucial thing to remember is the colour and details of the finished signs will stand out regardless of how big they are.
When you see large neon signs with glass tubes that are several feet in length you may wonder how such a long piece of tubing can be manufactured. In most cases multiple smaller sections will have been spliced together to create it. This is a more effective process than trying to manufacture a single piece of tubing.
When glass tubes are being spliced together accuracy and the quality of the weld are absolutely crucial. Any problem with either could result in poor alignment and leaks, allowing the gas to escape and causing the light to fail.
When splicing the cut edges of the tubing need to be even and as close a match as possible. Jagged uneven ends will make it incredibly tough to get a good quality weld. As a result each piece of tube needs to be cut with precision and care.
When sections of tubing need to be spliced together it is important the welds don’t ruin the aesthetics of the sign. The best solution is to hide them in parts of the design that won’t be seen including corners and curves. It is important to ensure the weld does not get damaged due to these locations though.
If you are considering your design ideas and are thinking about large neon signs please have confidence we can manufacture them for you. Just take a look at some of the products on our website; we are sure you’ll be surprised by some of the sizes.
