Embracing sustainability is not only environmentally responsible but also financially advantageous. As proud members of the U.S. Green Building Council, Baron Sign Manufacturing is committed to protecting the environment. We have integrated a range of sustainable products and practices into our manufacturing processes, allowing us to earn LEED points under the U.S. Green Building Certification Rating System (USGBC). From initial design to project completion, we prioritize green factors such as energy efficiency, cost savings, environmental air quality, and minimal impact on the environment and community.
One significant initiative we have undertaken is the adoption of low voltage LED illumination as the standard lighting system for our sign systems whenever possible. LED illumination surpasses neon or fluorescent tube lighting in energy efficiency, devoid of toxic components. With their longer lifespan, LED systems require fewer replacements, resulting in time and cost savings for our customers. The brightness and appearance of LED lighting systems also make them a preferred choice over neon and fluorescent alternatives.
In our interior sign product line, we have incorporated acrylic and aluminum back photopolymer materials, which are sustainable due to their base components. The photopolymer signage process is considered environmentally friendly as it utilizes a water-soluble etching layer, eliminating the need for harmful chemicals during processing. Moreover, the byproducts generated do not pose harm to the environment.
For paint coatings, we utilize Low VOC Matthews acrylic base polyurethane as the standard option. Our specialized High Volume Low Pressure (HVLP) paint applicators ensure superior color coatings with minimal overspray and waste. Whenever feasible, we employ solid digital prints for coating materials, eliminating VOC emissions entirely while still achieving a high-quality full-color appearance.
By prioritizing sustainability in our manufacturing practices, Baron Sign Manufacturing not only contributes to a greener future but also provides our clients with economic benefits and environmentally conscious solutions.
