Member Post: Two Innovative Solutions for Arizona State University

by L&H Sign Company

A situation was presented from the Arizona State University project, designed by Infinite Scale, with wanting a seamless weld not exposing any assembly hardware for some of their ID signs. This challenge meant we couldn’t grind down the welds because the structural integrity and engineering stamp would need to be valid. L&H Companies had to come up with an innovative way to join two surfaces at 45 degree right angles to create a virtually seamless square weld on the ID signs.
