Custom Wall Clocks & Tower Clocks
Americlock can help design your next clock tower as we design and build exterior clocks for buildings of all sizes. During the design, fabrication, and building of your custom clock tower, we can coordinate with the client and different trades to ensure your project stays on track. All types of dials, designs and custom wall clock hands are available for these styles of clock.
Whether you need a 4-sided custom clock tower or a 2-sided custom clock tower, we can build it to your specifications or design a turnkey custom made clock to fit your needs. Americlock has solutions for servicing and updating your tower clocks, as well as lighting and parts for your existing tower clocks. Our translucent dials are engineered to hold up in harsh outdoor applications (our products are built for both exterior building clocks and interior purposes), where constant exposure to the sun and its UV rays could cause damage. Our dials are designed to maintain its original look. Americlock can use modern or traditional materials to fabricate our custom clocks such as brass, copper, stainless steel, aluminum and a variety of metals. We also employ automotive paint finishes and can also guild the clock hands and markers with gold leaf if desired. If you need a replica clock tower, let us know and we can build one around an existing design.
Recessed Mount Large Wall Clock
A recessed clock is built to fit within the wall opening of the tower. The clock can be fully recessed or partially recessed into the wall to give it a three dimensional look. Typically a soldier course or edging is set around the clock to give it a distinct bold look. This clock design allows internal illumination of the dial so that the clock is legible at night. Dial colors and light colors can vary depending on the exterior/interior location and purpose of the clock for your building.
Flush Mount Large Wall Clock
This clock is mounted so that the front of the clock dial is on the same plan as the wall in which the clock is to be installed. This look is typically achieved by cutting a hole only slightly larger than the diameter of the clock in the surface of the wall on which the clock will be mounted. Internal Illumination for this clock is available upon request and applicable dial colors as well as lighting colors can vary depending on the location of the clock.
Surface Mount Large Wall Clock
A surface mounted clock is a clock where the dial is mounted directly to the surface of a building, house, church, clock tower or other structure. Nighttime illumination is possible by external lights. The only hole needed to go through the wall for this clock is one for the shafts of the clock movement.
- For customers concerned about radio frequency interference, our RF transparent cell tower clocks are used where cellular phone antennas need to be hidden within a wall or tower and our clock dials and hands do not interferer with the antenna signals.
- Custom made clocks are driven by motors and controllers which are designed for spaces both large and small
- For retrofitting existing clocks or even modern clock designs, auto-winders and mechanical control mechanisms keep your historical clock on time
When it comes to custom clock makers, Americlock has a solution to meet your personal needs for any tower or wall installation. Our exterior wall clocks are weatherproof and designed to withstand the elements in many climates that have harsh conditions. Tall church clock towers require hands and motors with wind tolerances, all characteristics factored into our production process.
