Product FAQ's


Can I use Fusion in outdoor applications?

Fusion is not recommended for exterior use. Fusion is very durable and chamber tested to endure extreme climate conditions for both temperature and humidity. It, however, is not designed for exterior use. We do approve it for limited exposure situations such as covered parking structures. If you have exterior signs on your project, Takeform can provide an alternate solution.


What is the grain direction of the laminate sign face?

We manufacture our face components with a horizontal grain. Decorative backers are cut with grain in the vertical position to contrast with the face components. You may request that an alternate grain direction be used.


How do you mount a sign to glass?

We typically cut a thin decorative laminate in the shape of the sign that is applied to the back of the glass. This covers all adhesive used to mount the sign. A less expensive vinyl solution is also available. Notify your sales associate at the time of order if mounting on glass.


How are work station signs attached to the panel?

We have a variety of attachments, including pin, magnet, Velcro® and numerous under-the-cap attachments designed for a particular panel. If we do not have an attachment for your system, we are happy to fabricate one.


Standard Fusion collections show four directory options. Are there more to choose from?

In addition to the standard Fusion directories, there is a wide selection of directory options within the Adapt System of components.


I need a sign type that is not available within Fusion.

Supplementing the Fusion collections is Adapt. Adapt is a system of 1100 components that may be utilized to configure a sign type not found within the standard Fusion collections.


Can we use laminates other than your standards?

Yes, any commercially available laminate may be utilized. Non-standard materials may extend the lead-times by one week. There is usually no up-charge, however, it is wise to confirm price and availability prior to order.


Can we use materials other than your standard Lumicor's for decorative backers?

Yes, again lead times may extend up to six weeks and there may be up-charges. Confirm price and availability at the time of order.


Do you offer any "real wood"? alternative to laminate?

Yes, we recommend pre-finished veneers by Tree Frog and Ligna by Formica. These materials have up-charges and will require additional lead time.


What if the sign cannot be positioned on the latch side of the door per ADA regulation?

In this instance, the sign may be installed on the nearest adjacent wall. Locate to allow approach within three inches (75mm) of the sign without encountering protruding objects or standing within the swing of the door.


What is your recommendation for cleaning signs?

Signs may be cleaned using a clean lint free cloth and Fantastic® All Purpose cleaner. DO NOT use ammonia or alcohol based cleaners.
