The Architectural Modular Series is a fully interchangeable aluminum signage system. A simple system, that offers extensive design and layout options.

Every AM Series sign consists of 3 components: the Base, the Inserts and the Sidelocks, regardless of the size of the sign. This applies to all signs from small door signs to large directory boards.

Signs can be made with as few or as many Inserts as desired, which allows for a vast range of configurations and layout possibilities. Inserts can be updated or changed as often as name or information details change. Simply remove and replace an Insert as needed.

The Architectural Modular Series also has Inserts designed to accept paper and/or lexan, which makes the system extremely easy to update. The system’s most popular and cost effective graphic text option is vinyl lettering. 

With many different mounting options available, the system is ideal for all interior and exterior signage requirements, for everything from small door signs through to large directory boards.

How it works

The system comprises of three components

  • The Base Plates (The backing panel / substrate)
  • The Inserts (The panels on which you add your copy and graphics)
  • The Sidelocks (The locking bars on the left and right hand sides)

The Inserts slide onto a Base Plate and are secured by Sidelocks, one on the left hand side and one on the right hand side.

Every AM Series sign consists of the 3 components, regardless of whether it is a small door sign or a large directory board.

The AM Series allows you to design signs with your preferred number and size of Inserts. This system offers a vast array of configurations and layouts making it flexible and adaptable to your project and clients needs.



The Architectural Modular Series offers a range of standard Insert width and height sizes.

Insert Widths

Insert widths are available in multiples of 2 1/16" (approx).
The smallest width is 2 1/16" , increasing in multiples of 2 1/16" (i.e. 2 1/16", 4 1/8", 6 3/16", 8 1/4", 10 5/16", 12 3/8", 14 7/16", 16 1/2"  and so on). The widest single Insert available is 74 7/16". 

Insert Heights

Insert heights are offered in increments of 13/16".
The smallest Insert is 13/16", increasing in multiples of 13/16" (i.e. 13/16", 1 5/8", 2 7/16", 3 1/4", 4 1/8", 4 15/16",
5 3/4", 6 5/8" and so on). The maximum height for any single Insert Panel is 47 1/8". 

The maximum height for a sign is 74 7/16".

Inserts can be configured in a variety of layouts and designs to suit graphic requirements.

Locking options

The Architectural Modular Series’ Sidelocks are designed to fasten and secure the Inserts and the Base Plate together.

There are five Sidelock options to choose from:  

  • Standard – 1/16" wide
  • 1/4" wide – square cut
  • 1/4" wide – radius cut
  • 1/2"  wide – square cut
  • 1/2" wide – radius cut

All of the above options perform the same function. The difference in design of these is purely aesthetic.

Tamper Proof Option

Ideal for vandalism-prone areas or exterior applications, a locking option is available for signs which require tamper-proof security. This must be requested as it is a non-standard option.



The Architectural Modular Series is available in a number of finishes.

  • Satin Natural Anodized finish (Clear Anodized)

Other finish options:

  • Mill Finish – a raw finish suitable for painting
  • Painted Finish – single pack or two-pack in any color
