Powder coating works well for both interior and exterior uses, while color anodizing is susceptible to ultraviolent light and is better for interior use only, Borden says. Metomic Corporation offers standoffs in two finishes, anodized brushed alumi- num and polished chrome, adding to the look of the sign, Bernstein says. "Standoffs provide a dimensional effect and greatly enhance the ordinary vanilla acrylic sign. They breathe new life into everyday signage," Bernstein says. "They allow the sign maker to enhance the product for his customers and increase his or her sale at the same time. Mounting hardware used effec- tively can become its own profit center for a business owner." SDG A unisex restroom sign featuring standoff from Metomic Corporation.
