This section shows large rustic-looking 8" to 12" round wood posts, usually mounted on both sides of a large sign, but sometimes on its back, to support the sign . These side-mounted round posts are suitable for double-faced signs, so that both the front and the back of the sign can be viewed, but they are often used for single-faced signs as well. Single-faced signs can also have back-mounted round posts which can obscure the back of the sign. Large HDU signs, 6 ft or wider, may need to be supported with a bottom horizontal beam or internal steel frame. Wood signs 1.5" to 2" thick usually do not need these.
The posts are usually inserted into a 2 ft deep hole in the ground, which is filled with concrete, rocks, or dirt. The wood posts, which can be made of Cedar, Redwood, Southern White Pine or Douglas Fir, can be treated with wood preservative or stained and sometimes varnished. They can also be painted.
We can provide this installation hardware with the posts. or if you buy a sign and its posts, we can pre-drill holes in the sign and the posts for easy installation.
