Removal of the Iconic Chicago Sun-Times

October 16th, 2017

Removal of the iconic Chicago Sun-Times sign began October 16th, 2017, in Chicago. The sign was roughly 12 feet tall and our techs needed to be hoisted on a swing stage to access it. Over the course of approximately 10 days, our techs removed the aluminum structure and fluorescent lighting while hanging several stories in the air.

Weber Grill Chicago Kettle

May 11th, 2017

The Weber Grill Chicago kettle sign sits atop the entrance to the restaurant, and in our opinion, wouldn’t have lasted another season in the condition it was in. When we first got the kettle into the shop, we had to wait for it to dry out as it had been taking on water due to extensive cracks in its exterior.

We added aluminum supports to the cracks, riveting and gluing each. After the glue had time to dry and cure properly, we went on to repair the fiberglass outer shell, followed by an intensive sanding period. Finally, we primed and painted the exterior, with a clear coat overall.

Large scale signage like this can be a challenge for any sign company, but we’re practiced in this kind of work and were ready to take it on.

Newest Case Study:
ZED 451 - Chicago, IL

New LED modules can breath new life into old, dull signs. But not every module is right
for all applications.

Omega Sign & Lighting/YESCO Chicago's case study with Chicago
area restaurant ZED 451 details how we approached this problem with their two unique lighting needs: a lit pillar with lettering and the unique channel letters we built for them.

Omega Sign & Lighting
Assists YESCO Lousiville

November 10, 2016 

Our rappel crew was caught on film today on the local Louisville, KY, station WDRB as we helped YESCO Louisville change the signs for Norton Children’s Hospital.

Replacing the letters on one side of the hospital required a large crane truck, which we were more than happy to bring with us. The signage at the top of the building involved some hair-raising rappel work (pictured left).

Many of Omega Sign & Lighting's downtown Chicago and Greater Chicagoland clients have signs at the top of their tall buildings, giving us the experience and skills to install and service signs at any height.

Check out the news clip on WDRB's website.
