What’s in a Sign? How New Signage Helps

Traffic safety and directional signs are a vital component of regulating the highways, streets, and parking lots of our community. Without them, traffic and commerce would come to a standstill.

Road signs also play a critical role in traffic and pedestrian safety. The raising of speed limits has been studied extensively over the years and many cities have found that increasing speed limits has had a net positive effect on lowering traffic accidents.

We’re going to look at three reasons why getting your traffic signs manufactured by Stripe Rite is not only the smart thing to do but can help save time, money, and prevent costly compliance issues.

Improved Safety and Visibility

The Pacific Northwest is known for its wet weather, cold winters, and windy days. Road signs bear the full brunt of Mother Nature. As the months and years go by, even the strongest of signs can start to weather and show signs of rust and damage.

New traffic and road safety signs are not only much more visible to motorists and pedestrians, but they’re also engineered out of stronger and more durable materials than those crafted 20 or 30 years ago.

The new, more durable signage material ensures that each sign will last for a very long time and stand up to anything Mother Nature can throw at it.

Durable Construction

Stripe Rite only uses high-quality material for all of our signs. This ensures that they are not only highly visible but will stand up to the elements year after year.  Depending on the application, regulations, and where it’s to be installed, signs can be made out of one of several different materials.

Our safety signs are available in:

  • Diamond Grade Sheeting
  • Hi-Intensity Prismatic (H.I.P.) Sheeting
  • Engineer Grade Sheeting
  • Aluminum
  • Plywood
  • Polyvinyl
  • ABS
  • Coroplast

If you’re not sure which material is right for your application, give our friendly sign department experts a call. They’ll be able to help guide you through the design and material selection process.
