What are the points of failure?
In looking at a stop sign or other parking sign, watch out for these defects:
• Sign Does Not Reflect
• Sign Bends
• Letters Delaminate
• Print Fades
• Sign Rusts
• Spray Paint or Graffiti
Good for Ten Years?
What does this mean? We are often asked this question. Unfortunately, there are plenty of possible answers to this.
To some, ten years of durability means that a sign can still be seen at by day and the print, while faded, can still be deciphered.
We cannot disagree with this more fervently.
Stop Signs and other signs have a real purpose. They are about fast and clear communication – at all times of day and in all types of weather. A Stop sign that cannot be seen at night is a failure. A sign that needs an archeologist to decipher it is a relic and not suitable for public use.
