Product Description

Why our portable signs are better

The A-8 portable arrow sign measures 96W x 40H x 10-1/2D cabinet and includes an adjustable stand made from 2 x 2 steel tube. The A-8 has a large tapered arrow that optionally has 60 Watt incandescent bulbs that flash sequentially from bar to tip.

Cabinet welded steel frame

These portable signs are fabricated with a double line structural steel frame. The steel frames are made of 1 inch x 1 inch x 1/8 inch angle steel and welded together with plates to form the box. This is superior compared to a sign box with just angle brackets in the corners, which are prone to rack. The sign cabinet is covered with 24 gauge paint-grip sheet steel and painted with our best acrylic enamel in your choice of three colors. The inside is also painted to prevent your sign from rusting from the inside out.

Mounting options

The cabinet comes standard with an adjustable leg and crossbar assembly that is made from 2 inch x 2 inch structural steel. The assembly includes two 60 inch crossbars, four 24 inch adjustable legs and fasteners to lock legs in place. The adjustable stands allow you to set-up and relocate the sign. (The leg assembly is not included if you are optionally mounting sign on a wall or between posts.)

We can fabricate the cabinet so you can mount it between two 4" x 6" pressure treated lumber posts. A removable end cap is included so you can slide out the faces from the side panel to service the sign. Each corner's angle brackets are pre drilled so you can attach your fasteners.

The cabinet can be attached to a wall. We need to make the sign single side by adding an aluminum face to its back. We also include the removable end cap so you can service the sign.

Sta-Tuf fiberglass faces

The double-sided sign has faces that are made from high-impact Corrugated Glass-Steel fiberglass. The Glass-Steel faces are available in white or yellow and are tracked for 4 lines of copy on each side. Letters slide into the double edge high impact tracking. The portable sign is optionally illuminated with high output fluorescent lamps powered by a quick start low temperature ballast. A ground fault circuit interrupt (GFI) is standard, these signs are not UL listed.

Extra letters included

Includes 300- 8 inch changeable alphabet letters to create four lines of message copy on each side. Our set provides more of the vowels and primary consonants than the lesser used alphabet. The 300 piece kit approximately contains 14ea- A E I N O R S T 6, 7ea- 0 5, 6ea- B C D F G H J K L M P Q U W period exclamation colon, 4ea- V X Y Z 1 2 3 4 7 8 dollar dash, and 2ea- percent star cent slash period. The letters are black and the numbers are red. Due to production variance we can only provide an approximate list but an exact letter list is included with each kit.

Our competitors only provide a 150 piece kit. (Think about that, there are 26 letters and 10 numbers and punctuation so on average you only get less than 4 characters each for a double sided sign!)

Large sign

Many customers prefer these signs because the large size gets potential customers' attention compared to the smaller sidewalk sign or sandwich board sign. These larger portable arrow signs command attention and can be seen from a further distance.
