F-Model Outdoor Figure 1 Rotators

F-Model rotators mount inside the sign so they are not visible and are protected from weather when installed inside an enclosed in sign. Figure 1 models are usually used on the largest and tallest signs due to the mounting location inside the sign. Rather than the rotator shaft and frame, the sign pole takes the wind loading.

To determine size, choose a rotator below the maximum sign area and weight. If you are in a high wind area let us know and we can provide a higher torque drive system. 

When bolted to the sign pole the center shaft does not move. The sign frame is bolted or welded to the rotator base (an/or optional U-channel frame).
