here’s how a neon sign comes together:
Hand bent over gas flame
Vacuum filled with Neon or Argon
A neon sign is electrical - so wires will most always be visible or hidden.
Wires are used to connect glass tubes to each other and to the transformer to illuminate the neon tubes.
Necessary to power the neon tubes
Preferably attached to the neon sign to create an intact lighting fixture
The transformer can be wired remotely- but there will be a wires connecting the sign to the remote transformer
The transformer should be placed as close to the tubes as possible. 6 ft is considered the maximum distance.
A sheet, grid, or container that unites and protects the components of the completed sign.
Material that the glass is fixed to for hanging and to increase the durability of the sign.
