Street Name Sign Mounting
How do I mount my street name sign?
Street name signs differ in many ways from most traffic signs. One of the most important differences is that these signs are double-sided. This is very important when considering the installation of your signs. Stop signs and other regulatory traffic signs are single-sided, and can be installed to the face of a post or pole.
Since street name signs need to be seen from both sides, they are typically installed on top of a post or pole. Because of the unique way these signs are displayed, SafetySign.com does not sell official street name signs with holes. If mounting holes are necessary, they can be added, but only to flat blade signs and not those of extruded construction.
Extruded blade street signs have thicker top and bottom edges that increase the strength of the sign, and should not be drilled through for mounting.
Although the construction of flat blade signs and extruded signs is different, they are still installed in the same ways.
Signs on Round Posts
After installing the bracket securely to the post using set screws, the street name sign can be installed to the top of the bracket, and secured using set screws.
If another street name sign is being added on top of the first sign (such as for an intersection), either a 90° cross separator or universal cross separator can be installed on to the bottom sign using set screws. The other sign is then set into the top section of the separator and secured with set screws.
Below is an illustration of two street name signs being installed using a 90° cross separator.
Signs on U-Channel Posts
The installation of street name signs to U-Channel posts is very similar to that of round posts. After the post is installed, either a 90° post bracket or 180° post bracket is added to the post using bolts.
The decision of whether 90° brackets or 180° brackets are used depends on the orientation of the post and the direction that the street sign needs to face. The street name sign is installed to the bracket and secured with set screws.
After the bottom street sign is installed, the same process of installing cross separators is used if another sign will be posted.
