Message Boards

Message Boards that are portable, changeable signs and controllable from anywhere.

These character panels use patented optical assemblies that emit bright, distinctive messages to the traveling public. LEDs enhance legibility and visibility while requiring less power than other types of illuminated signs. Full-matrix message centers allow you to display variable text heights from 13″ to 69″ in height and graphic symbols that are even larger. When fully charged, the message board is capable of operating independently of sun for 30 days with 2.5 hours of good sun required for each additional day of operation. These silent messengers are available for rent or sale. Rental options: Daily, weekly or monthly. Lift and rotate trailer available.
