Mohawk's frame series are manufactured from a continuous piece of extruded aluminum angle 1/16" thick by 1/2" deep. The frame has square corners and a 1/8" back up plate. The insert is separated from the frame with a 3/32" black reveal.

Standard frame finish is satin clear anodized, and will be supplied unless otherwise specified. Other finishes available are: Satin Gold, Black Anodized, Duranodic Dark Bronze, Polished Gold and Silver.

Additionally frames can be custom painted for an added charge. See Mohawk Standard color selection.

Standard frame mounting attachment is 1/32" Scotchmount adhesive tape and will be supplied unless otherwise specified. Concealed mounting holes are recommended for larger than 8" x 8" frames.

Mohawk will also custom make any aluminum frame sign to your detailed specifications on special order.

The frame series is available in two types of sign insert frame construction.

  • Permanent sign insert frame construction utilizes Scotchmount foam tape to fasten the sign insert into the frame. This method is standard and will be supplied unless otherwise specified.
  • Removable sign insert frame construction utilizes Presslock to fasten the sign insert into the frame. This method allows the sign insert to be easily removed and interchanged. The two types of insert construction are shown below.

Mohawk's frame series are also available in a 3/8" radius corner. To specify radius corner frames add the letter "R" after the design number. Example: M-202-9R.

Mohawk now has available plastic molded frames made from high impact styrene. Recommended for interior use only, the frame can be mounted with VTM, or concealed holes and screws. The frames are available in six matte colors: Almond, Pearl Gray, Brown, Dark Bronze, Black and White. The frames are available in a square format or with 3/8" radius corners. The outside depth is 1/2" and walls are 1/8". Sizes available are indicated below with an asterisk*. To specify plastic molded frames add the letters "PM" after the design number. Example: M-201-9PM.
