Not easily vandalized or bent
We manufacture the highest quality Permit Parking Only Signs made to FHA guidelines (Federal Highway Administration) for traffic control devices. These Permit Parking Only signs are made from professional sign grade aluminum, finished for long lasting performance and designed for easy detection, recognition, and legibility. The stroke and spacing of the letter style for these Permit Parking Only signs are also designed and field-tested for maximum readability.
Thicker aluminum is better
Our aluminum is 50% thicker than the competitors. We use a heavy gauge sign grade aluminum alloy that is long lasting and rust free even in harsh weather extremes. The ASTM 5052-H38 sign grade aluminum alloy is 12W x 18H and .080 inches thick and is not easily vandalized or bent. Our competitors signs are real easy to bend over and damage. The aluminum is cleaned and degreased, the corners are rounded, and the edges are smoothed to prevent injury.
Holes in sign for easy mounting
We also punch holes in the sign for easy mounting. The holes are 5/16 inch wide and are centered in the middle of the Parking Sign, top and bottom. These holes match standard sign posts.

This product also conforms to USDOT FHA standard specifications for construction of roads and bridges on federal highway projects, 1985 FP-85, Type II, Section 718.01.
