Mounting Options

Customers expect professional, safe, and aesthetically pleasing mounting hardware.  Golden Rule Signs provides durable and versatile mounting hardware ensuring ease of installation and long-lasting security.

Mounting Options

EMC Cabinet Design

Electronic message centers (EMCs) feature two “steel angles” or L brackets on the rear of the unit at both the top and bottom which typically run the entire length of the EMC. 

These steel angles are 2”x2” and allow the EMC to be fastened to a variety of installation applications or scenarios.  But, the EMCs angles often require a mate bracket to which they will fasten by either bolting or welding.  This document is intended to serve as a guide to illustrate the standardized mounting hardware offered by Golden Rule Signs and practical use applications for each unique mounting hardware.
