These three back-mounted 4 " x 4" Cedar wood posts provide support for a large sign for Mount Pleasant Cemetery. Back-mounted post supports are often used for single-faced signs (double-faced signs, require side-mounted posts because back-mounted posts obscures the back face of the sign). Because the posts are closer to the center of the sign, back-mounted signs usually do not need to be supported with a bottom horizontal beam or internal steel frame. Unlike side-mounted signs, a third post can be placed in the middle of the back of the sign to provide additional support, as is shown in this photo.
Because the tops of the posts are usually hidden by the front of the sign, the tops of the posts usually do not have finials. The posts are inserted into a 2 ft deep hole in the ground, which are filled with concrete,The bottoms of the posts are treated with a wood preservative. The wood posts are painted with a wood primer and a top coat using a long-lasting wood enamel, usually in a color to match the border of the sign. Natural redwood or Cedar wood posts can alternatively be stained and varnished.
The sign can be attached to the posts with round-head screws or bolts through the front face of the sign (with heads painted to match the sign's background) , or with 4 aluminum 2" wide L-brackets (mounted on the top and bottom on both sides of all of the posts) which have holes for screws that are inserted into the back of the sign and also to the sides of each post (these are not visible from the front of the sign). We can provide this installation hardware with the posts. or if you buy both sign and the posts, we can pre-drill holes in the sign and the post for easy installation.
