We make all our signs from .080” thick aluminum. Other companies use steel which rusts, plastic which cracks or warps, or a thinner gauge aluminum (.060 or .040) which bends or buckles.
We use 3M reflective sheeting and 3M UV resistant inks.
3M offers the following on their sheeting:
- 3M 3400 Series Engineer Grade Prismatic (EGP): Rated for 5-7 year outdoor lifespan
- 3M 3930 Series High Intensity Prismatic (HIP): Guaranteed for 10 year outdoor lifespan
- 3M 4000 Series Diamond Grade (DG3): Guaranteed for 12 year outdoor lifespan.
- 3M 4083 Series Fluorescent Yellow Green Grade (DG3): Guaranteed for 12 year outdoor lifespan.
