U-Channel Sign Posts

Remember to Order a U-Channel Sign Post to Go with Your Signs

Whatever signs you choose to post outside your building property or parking lot, you must also properly install the signs so that drivers, passersby, and all property visitors can best see them. By far, the most popular way to install a sign is to use a u-channel sign post. These are the traffic sign posts you see all the time but just never knew were called u-channel sign posts.

Remember to Order a U-Channel Sign Post to Go with Your Signs

Whatever signs you choose to post outside your building property or parking lot, you must also properly install the signs so that drivers, passersby, and all property visitors can best see them. By far, the most popular way to install a sign is to use a u-channel sign post. These are the traffic sign posts you see all the time but just never knew were called u-channel sign posts.

Metal sign posts are inexpensive and relatively easy to install though they do require a bit of work, a few tools and some basic hardware. The most popular type of u-channel sign post is the 8-foot option, but 6-foot sign post may also be a good option depending on if you need road sign posts or metal sign posts for drivers or pedestrians.

Install Road Sign Posts Directly on Your Property

When making your purchase, please note that between one-third and one-half (or 12-18 inches depending on soil conditions) of the metal sign post will remain under the ground in order for the sign to remain secure and in-tact. (So if you want your sign to stand about 5 feet above ground, you must purchase a 6-foot sign.) You can measure and mark on the post the appropriate part where it should go in the ground. Once you select the spot on the ground to put in the metal sign post, it is advised to work with a helper and use a post-driver tool, a heavy cylinder object with handles, which helps to evenly bang the post into the ground to the right level.

Durable, Made-to-Last U-Channel Sign Posts

Standard-style sign mounting hardware can be used to secure the signs of your choosing to the parking sign posts. For an investment of a few bucks more per sign, you can opt for vandal-resistant or theft-resistant mounting hardware that will make removing the sign nearly impossible. Available in colors of galvanized or green, each metal sign post is made to endure harsh environmental conditions such as wind, rain, snow, sleet and more. These metal sign posts are rust-resistant and are made to last for seven years or longer.
