LxSign® (expected outdoor life: 15 years or more)

Stonehouse Signs LxSignA Stonehouse LxSign® stays glare-free and color bright.  The message is printed on the back and protected by the front, so it’s never exposed to the elements.

  • Weighing only 1/2lb. per square ft., LxSigns® withstand more than 200 ft. lbs. of impact, with a tensile strength of 9,000 PSI.
  • A proprietary surface treatment on the face side provides protection against ultra violet radiation yellowing for at least 5 years.
     
  • Heat and cold resistant, withstanding exposure to extreme temperatures from -30°F. to 250°F, with no deterioration of the molecular structure of the material, and no change in appearance, shape or performance.
     
  • Dimensional stability, with no permanent shrinkage or dimensional changed due to thermal expansion and contraction.
     
  • Meets U.L. requirements for electrical conductivity.
     
  • Rustproof and impervious to salt spray
     
  • Remains stable even after bullet damage-bullets may penetrate, but there is nothing exposed which will deteriorate from the elements

 

Aluminum Signs (expected outdoor life: 5 - 10 years)

Stonehouse Signs Aluminum SignAvailable in a variety of thicknesses, all Stonehouse Signs Aluminum Signs use an aluminum alloy that exceeds the industry standard specification for aluminum sheet and is specifically selected for sign fabrication.

  • Chromate conversion coated for superior paint adhesion and weatherability.
     
  • Available in a variety of thicknesses from .025" to 0.125" for every application from small aluminum tags to large modular sign systems. The thickness required usually relates to sign size and mounting application.

 

 

Aluminum & Steel Sign Coating Systems



The paints and screen process colors used on our steel and aluminum signs are engineered to look good for a long time.  Superior outdoor weatherability is achieved with a perfect marriage of substrate, base coat and screen printed message, all baked to produce a high performance ‘coating system’ that will perform indoors or outdoors for years to come.

Reflective Signs - MUTCD Compliant Signs (expected outdoor life: 7 - 10 years)

For increased visibility at night, we apply reflective sheeting to aluminum or other rigid substrates.  The result is a distinctive looking sign that performs as well at night as it does during the day.  All of our reflective materials retain their brilliance even when wet or when viewed at wide observation angles. 

Transparent screen process colors are used to maintain the integrity of the colors on the sign during nighttime use. 

Stonehouse Signs  offers 3 different grades of reflective sheeting, ranging from ‘bright’ to ‘brilliant’, many of which comply with the Department of Transportation’s Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) for highway signage. 

Please specify the reflectivity you desire or require when placing your order.  Additional charges may apply.

Engineering grade reflective sheeting

Stonehouse Signs MUTCD Compliant Reflective Signs

The most economical reflective material we offer. This sheeting is a "Flat-top" wide angle material that recommended for commercial and non-critical traffic signs.

High intensity reflective sheeting

High intensity grade reflects approximately three times more light than our standard reflective sheeting and boasts an impressive ten year outdoor life.  All standard traffic signs are offered in high intensity reflective material to adhere to changes in the MUTCD laws that are effective starting in January 2010.

Diamond grade reflective sheeting

Diamond grade delivers the best possible performance at any sight distance. Its optical elements return almost 60 percent of available light to drivers, which is significantly higher than any other reflective material offered.

  

Reflective Vinyl Decals (expected outdoor life: 7 - 10 years)

Stonehouse Signs Reflective Vinyl SignsIf you’re looking for a substrate that offers night time visibility on a flexible material, Stonehouse Reflective Vinyl is exactly what you need.  It’s easy to install, and has a great service life!

Fiberglass Signs (expected outdoor life: 5 - 8 years)

Stonehouse Signs Fiberglass SignsFiberglass signs are extremely durable and non-conductive, which makes this substrate effective for outdoor applications and places where electric shock might be a concern. 

  • There’s no need to worry about rust-  since a fiberglass sign doesn’t contain any metal, it’s completely rustproof.
     
  • Since fiberglass is non-conductive, it's perfect for any application where electricity is involved.
     
  • Fiberglass is also Chemical & Abrasion resistant- it holds up in adverse conditions.

**Our Fiberglass material can be used for many of our signs, but is not shown as a stock option and is considered a custom order. Please contact us for pricing, suitability and availability.**

 

Porcelain Signs (expected outdoor life: 30 years)

Stonehouse Signs Porcelain SignsPorcelain enamel has a surface with the hardness of glass combined with the strength and rigidity of steel.  It provides a multitude of advantages to give it one of the longest service lives of any of our substrates.

  • A porcelain sign has tremendous chemical resistance, and is unaffected by practically all acids, chemicals and solvents.
     
  • Scratching and abrasion isn’t a problem- porcelain even resists a steel blade.
     
  • It can withstand temperatures as high as 1000 and as low as -200 degrees Fahrenheit.
     
  • Porcelain enamel is also weather resistant (including ultraviolet light, condensation, precipitation and salt air), vandal resistant, and non-conductive.
