Construction Designed for "care free" display of a unit's command excellence or achievement, each operational device is precision cut from heavy, tempered aluminum sheet, then hand finished with high performance, exterior grade vinyl film. We kept the marine environment in mind when selecting our materials, so your awards will endure for years to come. All awards follow current specification for dimension and color, and are standard equipped with high performance, double-face tape, allowing for permanent placement. Optional magnetic mounting utilize a 420 stainless steel, magnet cup design, affixed with 316 stainless steel hardware. A minimum of three magnets are typically found on letterforms, where each magnet has a 35 lb rated pull. Our large letterforms utilize high gauss magnets, each with a 110 lb rated pull.
Note: The exceptional bond strength of our magnetically mounted awards are designed for prolonged exposure while underway at sea.
