The Advantages of Using Concrete Sign Post Bases
Posted by Jeffrey Dornbos on 28th Apr 2016
When choosing a sign post base for different uses, there are several elements that will affect the base’s efficiency. These facets include the sign base’s size, shape and composition. Concrete sign post bases are known to offer a range of benefits as they provide a more potent effect than their plastic counterparts.
Different Categories of Safety
To begin with, concrete sign post bases are a safe alternative to go with for various reasons. Since concrete can’t catch on fire, in the event of a fire or accident, a blaze won’t be passed on easily. Also, concrete can withstand various weather conditions and it’s highly resistant to impacts.
Seeing as how concrete isn’t affected by water, it’s not prone to getting damaged by rain or flooding. Even during windy conditions, the strength of concrete allows for sturdily holding a sign post in place.
This also promotes the safety of the environment, as the risk of having a sign fly out of place and harm its surroundings will be averted. Concrete sign post bases are also highly difficult to steal due to their heavy weight of 365 lbs.
Durability and Easy Maintenance
Concrete can last for many years and it’s naturally easy to maintain, as it’s stable for the majority of its lifetime. You don’t have to worry about having to consistently clean it or having to replenish the unit due to rust or scratches. Our concrete bases have a protective additive that protects our base’s finish from the harsh effects of salt used to melt the snow & ice in parking lots.
The fact that you don’t need to use chemical products to treat a concrete sign post base makes it an environmentally friendly option, as well. Concrete’s composition is eco-friendly since it’s made of naturally occurring materials, including sand and stones. These components make it easy to recycle and reuse concrete, too.
Because concrete is a long lasting material, you can save money by not having to replace a base sooner. Concrete bases are also easy to install and they’re aesthetically appealing with the ability to fit in various environments.
