A solid metal sign weighs a lot! The bigger and thicker it is, the more it costs to manufacture, ship and store until it's finally mounted. By using less metal, a FusionCast sign is up to 40% lighter making it less expensive to make, handle and install.
We've already mentioned the shipping and handling benefits of a lighter signage. Now consider the extra cost of installing a very heavy sign. You may need to reinforce a wall, require special mounting brackets or in some cases, involve the services of an engineer. FusionCast presents a lighter alternative. Many of our plaques can be hung on a wall like a picture frame. "Easy" not only saves time, but money as well.
We've all heard stories about metal being stolen for its scrap value. Bronze can fetch as much as $3 a pound making it an easy target for unscrupulous "recyclers". If this happens to a FusionCast sign, unsuspecting thieves will get a big surprise at the scales. But the replacement cost of a sign can also be looked at another way. Imagine being able to make less expensive duplicates of a commemorative plaque, achievement award or other recognition piece as a gift or display copy. Only FusionCast can make this an affordable option.
Okay, while this one won't put money directly into your pocket, it will make you feel good about playing a role saving the earth's precious resources. FusionCast uses less metal, less energy and eliminates virtually all toxic emissions in its composite metal process. Additionally, we are able to recycle 95% of the moulds used in our casting process. That's not only good for the planet but for our customers as well.
