Gable Finishes Signage Work on PPG Paints Arena

Gable has designed, manufactured and installed new exterior identifying signage at PPG Paints Arena, the home of the National Hockey League’s Pittsburgh Penguins. PPG, a Pittsburgh-based coatings company, chose Gable to conceptualize the signage development, including a color-changing light concept for identifying signage on the arena’s main facade.

In all, four “PPG Paints Arena” signs have been installed on the arena’s exterior, including one seventy-eight-foot-wide sign on the arena’s main facade, featuring color-changing channel letters with full RGBW capabilities. The color-changing sign, developed and fabricated by Gable, allows arena operators to change the color of “Paints” to commemorate holidays or other special occasions.

PPG, a Pittsburgh-based coatings company, and the Penguins agreed to a naming rights deal in October 2016 that changed the arena’s name from Consol Energy Center to PPG Paints Arena. Gable manufactured and installed the arena’s first exterior identifying signage for Consol Energy Inc. in 2009, when the arena opened. Installation of the arena’s new exterior signage was completed in late March.

In recent years, Gable has completed work at similar sporting venues including M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.
