A pylon sign is a freestanding sign in excess of eight feet in height that is typically detached from a building. These signs are supported by one or more structural elements which are architecturally similar to the design of the sign.

Materials can vary from stainless steel, Acrylic, LED, ACP or even Wood. Latest designs even show no support posts at all, being completely wrapped by folded metal panels, fabricated to suit specific designs and shapes.
