What is the best method to remove vinyl from my sign and reapply new to it?
Here is a video found on YouTube that will help you. I wouldn’t use an application fluid with it if it’s an ADL sign (translucent). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSVk0C_NLpc
For removal you just peel the old vinyl off, and clean off any sticky residue that’s left on the sign with alcohol.
How do you manufacture your digits to ensure longevity of the product in its intended environment? Can your product be outside in any rain such as light mist, light rain, rain, flurries, snow, etc.?
The digits are conformal coated and used in our permanent outdoor scoreboard product. The outdoor scoreboard has drain holes so that condensation or seepage will not pool and are designed to be outside in all weather conditions. We have continuously improved our conformal coating process over the last 10 years, all of our outdoor products are designed and tested to ASCE-7-16 specifications up to and exceeding 180mph, sustained wind loads.
Would you recommend the segment timer product be outside in any rain such as light mist, light rain, rain, flurries, snow, etc.? I just want to clarify the water resistant use of the outdoor use of the Seg-18/14 unit.
The digits are conformal coated and the same that is used in our permanent outdoor scoreboard product. The unit does not have drain holes so if you left it out all season it could eventually fill up. The battery is designed to be quickly swapped out when it’s charged (Like a cordless drill for example). While its connections are gold plated, just like our permanent outdoor Scoreboards, they aren’t watertight so in a pouring or driving rain they could get wet. As long as it’s sitting upright it’s less likely. A few exposures like this isn’t going to hurt it, but if you put it up wet recurrently, eventually it’s going to damage it.
How do I determine the proper way to repaint my Nevco scoreboard if I want to change the color?
Nevco uses Matthews paint exclusively on all painted surfaces. (MAP® Matthews Acrylic Polyurethane: An ultraviolet inhibited aliphatic, acrylic polyurethane system engineered for extreme color and gloss retention. Lead and heavy metal free)
We recommend you follow the link provided below to determine the substrate preparation methods recommended by Matthews.
To locate the closest Matthews distributor for quotation and additional tech data follow this link to determine the best approach to changing the color.
How do I determine what specific wind chart to size the I-beams to use for my area?
Wind loading figured at Exposure “C” – Open terrain with scattered obstructions having heights generally less than 30 feet. This category includes flat open country, grasslands, and all water surfaces in hurricane prone areas.
Wind loading figured at Exposure “B” – Urban and suburban areas, wooded areas, or other terrain with numerous closely spaced obstructions having the size of single-family dwellings or larger. These areas prevail in the upwind direction for a distance of 2600 feet or 20 times the structure height, whichever is greater.
When we received our score tables, they did not come with any sort of protective cover for the display, should we have had them, or are they an extra charge?
There is no requirement to use a protective cover over the LED panels. If you are experiencing unusual or aggressive impact, we can offer you a protective Lexan sheet that will help. Unfortunately, the sheet can cause potential glare when viewed from extreme angles.
Our LED panels are manufactured with a durable GE fiber reinforced plastic housing and LED mask connected to the table with (4) steel quarter turn positive locking latches and fortified with a braced LED cartridge housed in a heavy gauged steel frame. We test the face of the display for impact with 40mph+ basketballs. Any deformation of metals or loss of LED’s constitutes a failure.

How do I clean and disinfect Nevco operating equipment for the virus that causes Covid-19?
Nevco recommends following CDC guidelines for high touch surfaces. Clean between changes in operators.
1. There is no need to remove the button overlay as the ink is UV cure, impervious to disinfecting chemicals, and actually printed on the opposite side showing through the clear Lexan. Additionally the top side of this surface is part of what we wish to clean.
2. Use a disinfecting wipe from the EPA List N of approved products:
3. Wipe all surfaces below the display, first in a horizontal and then in a vertical direction. Include the overlay surface, the rubberized button keypad, and portions of the case below the buttons where a user will rest their palms or handle the control. Wipe all surfaces of the hand-held control(s). Avoid pressing in on the red display area.
4. For the MPCX2 product, wipe any and all outside surfaces.
5. Wipe the handle area of the control carrying case.
6. Only a single wipe should be necessary, dispose of properly.
