Advantages of .080” Thick Aluminum Street and Parking Signs

Posted by Jeffrey Dornbos on 18th Feb 2016

There are different factors that come together to assure that parking signs are made of the best quality. The material of which each street sign is composed can play a major role in how the signs will last and how they appear.

At Dornbos Sign and Safety, you can find a variety of aluminum street and parking signs that maintain the qualities each sign should have. At just .080 inches thick, these signs are generally covered in reflective sheeting to enhance the visibility of motorists on any street. The following are some of the main benefits of going with aluminum signs.

Extra Durability

Both street and parking signs are prone to getting exposed to various weather conditions and pollutants that can taint their longevity. Generally, many sign buyers go with Aluminum rather than plastic signs because of the fact that aluminum is a resilient material that’s resistant to rust.

Since Dornbos Sign and Safety signs are covered with reflective sheeting, the extra layer of coating easily binds to aluminum to add additional protection. Aluminum signs basically make a lasting impression in numerous areas.

Enhanced Flexibility

Seeing as how aluminum can be used with many different types of printing ink, most sign manufacturers find it easier to use such signs. It is accepting of different finishing methods including anodizing and liquid paint.

Aluminum is also flexible in the sense that it can be molded into an array of shapes without the use of complex joining techniques. This adds to the durable properties of aluminum since it’s less likely to break down into several parts.

When it’s hit with impact, aluminum has the tendency to spring back without breaking. That’s especially important for keeping both motorists and pedestrians safe from possible accidents. If a sign is damaged and can’t be seen, it can gear people towards the wrong direction.

Aluminum is also recyclable, so it serves an eco-friendly purpose. Moreover, it is a spark-resistant material and it’s non-combustible, even at the really high temperatures.

Affordable Quality

Seeing as how aluminum has a lightweight nature, it’s very easy to transport, which also makes installing aluminum signs easier—and more budget-friendly to ship and handle. As aluminum signs encompass so many advantages, a 0.080” sign offers just the right amount of thickness to keep a robust standing.
