Electric Time offers a variety of Street Clock Styles. Clocks are available with LED backlighting or neon edge lighting. A wide range of standard dial markings and hands along with special dial lettering and graphics are available.
Since 1918 Service & Support - Electric Time has been manufacturing street clocks since Henry Warren's original electric clock patent of 1918. Electric Time can still fix products more than 80 years old. No other firm in almost any industry can offer this service.
Cast in Aluminum - Our street clocks are made of aluminum not fiberglass. Aluminum provides a stronger, sturdier clock that is not likely to need any repairs or upkeep. The aluminum clock will be around for 100 years+. We find fiberglass is a less expensive medium for both patterns and parts, but not one we prefer for our post clocks.
Integrated Manufacturing - Electric Time manufactures the clock movements, the clock controller and the entire clock. We can provide parts for your clock, whether it is two, twenty or eighty years old. Our clock movements are made of brass and stainless steel; they will not rust and will provide decades of reliable operation.
Raised Lettering - Unique in the industry, Electric Time company provides raised 3/16" thick aluminum letters on all headers and saddles.
Tempered Glass Crystals - We provide clear tempered glass crystals to protect the faces on our street clocks. This is the same glass as used in the side windows on your car; it will never yellow. We do not recommend polycarbonate (Lexan) as it will yellow in a relatively short time. If you are in an area with vandalism problems, we can provide an alternative material.
Quality Finish - We apply a quality paint system made by PPG, the world's leading coating manufacturer, on your street clock. The paint system consists of four parts:
- Acid etch primer over the base casting
- Catalyzed polyurethane paint applied in three steps:
- Base color
- Highlighting color
- Sealer for protection
This paint system has been tested by an internationally known paint testing lab for weathering, light stability and corrosion. Test results are available upon request.
UL & CUL Listed - Electric Time Company lists its street clocks under both UL and CUL (Canadian UL) standards.
Organization and Corporate Logos - We can provide corporate or organization logos on the dials and headers of our post clocks.
Rotary International - Electric Time Company is licensed to apply the Rotary International logo to your clock. View our gallery of Rotary street clock installations.
Protective Bollards - Protect your post clock from possible vehicular damage and complement the surrounding area with cast iron or cast aluminum bollards. The bollards can be connected by chains in locations with heavy pedestrian traffic.
Black on White Dials - Special Acrylic dials are available for our post clocks that appear black during the day, but at night when backlighted they glow white. Typically the dial markings and hands are gold or gold leaf. This option is ideal for clocks with a black finish.
23K Gold Leaf Highlighting - Nothing is more striking to the eye than real gold on a clock. Electric Time will highlight your clock with real 23K gold leaf.
Dedication & Donor Plaques - Cast Bronze Dedication and Donor plaques are available. Plaques are typically attached to the Post Clocks' doors - or can be mounted on a nearby stone, granite block or wall.
