YES WE CAN
We have a Can-Do attitude to help all customers solve their signage needs. Our niche has always been Electronic Message Centers, mostly for military customers, and now we also service scoreboards in the Hawaiian Islands and Guam. We have been to several factories for technical training, and is the only Hawaii-based Electronic Sign service technician. Our informational Electronic Signs are on nearly every Oahu military base, usually multiple signs per base, controlled from individual central computers by modem, network, radio and ClearWire service, depending on the customer’s preference and realistic solutions for the specific sites.
We were involved in the original installation and setup of the scoreboard and spinning TriVision ad panels at Aloha Stadium in 1990. We still service the systems and design/install the large graphics on the ad panels.
Recently we took on the installation of the new Blaisdell Arena CenterHung scoreboard, which consists of 4 separate faces supporting each other. Our challenge was to mount the first face to the bottom framework and keep it upright until the 2nd, 3rd and 4th faces were in place as they all hold each other up. The faces tilt down to be readable from the court area below, and these 600lb scoreboard faces had to be secured by mechanical means, without a factory-grade gantry to make life easy. One of us had to sit on the other side of the bottom frame to keep it from flipping up, while the other hurried up and attached the floating scoreboard face to the truck, then forklift the 2nd face into place, securing them to each other with straps. Adding the 3rd and 4th, without dropping them or bumping the precious first two faces was tricky, but careful, meticulous attention to detail kept everyone safe and the scoreboard faces undamaged. The first time for anything is always the steepest learning curve, and we’re eager to assemble another CenterHung scoreboard!
Signs Hawaii was interviewed by several publications regarding the donation of over a dozen highway signs to Volcano National Park to protect the endangered, indigenous Hawaiian Nene goose. Previous signs were being stolen as souvenirs and families of Nene were being killed by unaware drivers. We were appalled at the brash attitude of the sign thieves and disregard of our precious State Bird, and felt we were in a position to do something about it. We contacted the parks and offered to donate $2,500 worth of signs, in whatever format they needed or felt would be most effective. The interviews were over a year after the donation, as the signs were intregal in the largest number of yearlings surviving in recorded history. See a newspaper editorial here »
