Can Neon Signs Go Outside?

We explain what’s required to ensure our LED Neon Signs can be used outdoors in contact with rain or water!

Yes they can! We have a simple solution if you do want to use your LED neon light in an outdoor setting, where it will be exposed to rain or water. We can build an acrylic box around your sign, sealed at each end of the LED neon with silicon glue, to ensure no rain contact and avoid any leakages or related damage.

How can I get an acrylic box built for my sign?

Either tick the option box on the Custom Neon Builder, or if you’re speaking directly with a member of our team, be sure to mention it via email. Your quote and invoice or payment link will also reflect this addition to your sign, so you can check in there if it will be included!

Can the acrylic boxes be opened once they are sealed?

No, unfortunately they cannot. This is to ensure your neon sign will continue to work flawlessly outdoors.

Can acrylic boxes be suspended?

No, and we wouldn’t really recommend trying!

What sort of transformer do you supply with an outdoor neon light?

Typically we will provide an IP65 water-resistant driver that comes pre-wired, unless we or you specify otherwise.

How do you mount the acrylic boxed signs?

We router cut small holes on the backing plate of your sign and include small screws, so that your sign can be screwed directly into the flat surface behind the sign. See photos of our outdoor neon signs below.

What is the maximum size for an acrylic box?

Roughly 2m (6ft) in width would be the largest possible size, and we wouldn’t exceed 60cm (24 in) in height. Depending on the size of your design, we may also split the sign into multiple pieces/boxes to ensure it ships without damage.
