Square Anchor Post Specifications and Installation

The square post is one of the most versatile posts in the industry and a great choice for displaying traffic signs, parking signs, and property signs. The square shape provides greater wind load capabilities and torsional stability, allows signs to be mounted on all four sides of the post, and enables each subsequent size to fit into the next smallest or larger post.

The use of a square anchor post allows the sign post to perform a breakaway function when impacted by a vehicle, as well as making more of the sign post available for sign mounting. The sections below will detail specifications and installation of square anchor posts.
