          1. The sign must have a luminance contrast with the surface on which it is mounted of not less than 30%.

          2. Luminance contrast must be met under the lighting conditions in which the sign is to be installed.

                Visual Glazing Strip

                Visual glazing strips must be installed as follows:

                1. Clean glass thoroughly with cleaning products before commencing installation.

                2. Measure the glass panel width (edge to edge) and cut the visual glazing strip to size.

                3. Measure 1000mm high from the ground and mark the glass panel on each edge with a non-permanent marker or use a small piece of masking tape.

                4. Thoroughly spray the area including above and below where the visual glazing strip is to be installed using a spray bottle with soapy water (dishwashing liquid is highly recommended).

                5. Remove the backing seal from the visual glazing strip and apply on to the glass. Adjust if required before the soapy water dries up.

                6. Use a rubber window squeegee (light application) to remove any excess soapy water whilst holding the visual glazing strip in position. Wipe any excess soapy water from the glass.

                1. Ensure the surface in free of debris, contaminants and moisture. Some substrates may need to be water blasted before installation.

                2. Wipe the area well with a clean rag using Acetone ensuring no residue is left on the surface.

                3. If the surface is porous e.g., bitumen, seal the structure with a butyl primer or similar before installation.

                4. Set out the area for the tile installation in accordance with AS1428.4.1-2009.

                5. Remove paper backing from the tile and set tile into place. Press all edges firmly down and knock each stud with a rubber mallet.

                6. Ensure there is a positive bond between the tile and substrate.
