Steel U-Channel Sign Posts
While round posts can typically be purchased from a large hardware store, such as a Home Depot or Lowes, U-channel sign posts are the strongest and longest lasting. U-channel posts are versatile, and can be play many roles, from street sign posts to parking sign posts. While both green u-channel sign posts and galvanized u-channel sign posts provide rust-resistance, the galvanized process produces a stronger rust-resistance. If you will be mounting your signs on sign posts near the ocean, or in a winter environment where salt is used when plowing roads, the galvanized u-channel sign post would be the better choice. Our steel u-channel signposts come in two weights. Medium gauge signposts weigh 1.2 pounds per linear foot and are an excellent choice for non-snow environments. Heavy-gauge posts weigh 2 pounds per linear foot and offer extra-strength for environments with heavy snow or high winds. Whether you choose the medium or heavy gauge u-channel signpost, you will be getting a 100% steel post built for many years of rust-free service, with one end tapered to allow for easier driving into the ground, and with a standardized one-inch center-to-center hole pattern that matches the hole pattern in our MUTCD-compliant signs. A u-channel sign post can be mounted in a footing of concrete, or it can be driven directly into the ground, with a foot to a foot-and-a-half of the post below ground, depending on soil conditions.
A moveable sign stand offers many advantages for schools, businesses, special events, and retail store sales. Our cast-iron sign stands can hold one sign, or two signs mounted back-to-back. The 20-pound movable sign post offers stability in low-wind environments. And the 40-pound portable sign post system has added weight for higher-wind conditions. Yet both can be easily moved and positioned as needed. Both systems also come with pre-drilled mounting holes in the sign bases, which gives you the option to affix the sign stand permanently in your parking lot, if desired. A-frame sign holders also allow for displaying signs in one or two directions. A-frame sign holders can carry larger signs, up to 24x36 in size. These a-frame sign holders are rugged heavy-gauge plastic that can be filled with water or sand for added weight and stability. Easy to position indoors or outdoors, in parking lots or on sidewalks, a portable sign holder can be a valuable means for advertising, for guiding customers and visitors to your business or property, and for controlling your parking areas.
Our 70-pound sign bases made from recycled tires can be the right movable sign system for larger shopping center parking lots and garages, warehouses and outdoor events, whether at a school or car dealership. With pvc sign posts of 4-foot, 5-foot or 6-foot lengths, you can put your message where your audience is. And the hefty 70-pound weight of the recycled rubber base eliminates concerns about casual theft or misuse of the sign stand, once in position.
Simple to install without any special tools, our Anti-Vandal Sign Hardware helps protect your investment in Parking Signs, Neighborhood Watch Signs, Security Signs, Video Surveillance Signs and Private Property No Trespassing Signs that are mounted on U-Channel sign posts. At only $4.95 for a pair (signs have two holes) our ant-vandal sign mounting hardware can prevent the loss of signs, and eliminate the costs of re-mounting signs. The only time we recommend using regular hardware instead of anti-theft hardware is when you may need to reposition or re-mount your signs. (Once affixed properly, the anti-vandal hardware can only be removed by cutting the bolt.)
