Mount Types


 This document is intended to provide additional technical information, options, and guidelines to plan for and conduct a successful “heavier” product installation direct to a wall. Various Post Mounts are also available for heavy plaques, when not mounting on walls.  View PDF

Blind Stud mount

Back of plaque is drilled and tapped to receive threaded studs. Studs are pressed into pre-drilled wall holes and secured with adhesive and/or anchors – based on the wall type and letter weight. Studs can be aligned in-line for brick or block mortar upon request. View drawing

solid wall

Machine screws, passing through plaque holes, with or without decorative rosettes. Screws are either bonded into wall holes with adhesive or a combination of adhesives and anchors – based on wall and plaque size and weight. View drawing

hollow wall

Machine screws with toggle, passing through plaque holes, with or without decorative rosettes. Screws are then tightened to expand toggle in a hollow wall cavity. View drawing

wood mount

Wood screws, passing through plaque holes, with or without decorative rosettes. Screws are screwed into a wooden wall surface or bonded with adhesive to further secure. View drawing

garden stake

Machine screws are inserted through 5/16″-thick black anodized stakes into the back of the plaque. Maximum plaque size is 12″ x 8″ for one stake or 20″ x 8″ for two stakes. Available in heights of 24,” 36″ and 48″.

post mount

Black painted aluminum brackets are attached to the back of the plaque with machine screws. An aluminum square post bolts into the bracket at a 45˚ or 90˚ angle. Plaques over 24” wide require two posts. Posts are available in heights of 6’ or 8’. A 1”-wide post is recommended for plaques up to 250 square inches, 1-1/2” for plaques up to 450 square inches, and 2” for plaques up to 720 square inches. View drawing
