About Street Name Signs
As you probably know, street signs are used for many reasons. Above all else, these are in place to help people stay on track. Nobody wants to get lost when driving and with the right mix of signs it is safe to say that most people can avoid doing so.
Depending on where you are located, street signs differ in the information that they offer. However, as the name suggests you are always going to have a street name at the very least. In some cases, these signs will include other information such as a number range. This gives a better idea of which addresses are located on a particular section of a street. These types of signs are more important in crowded cities with long streets.
What do they look like?
Once again, this is based largely on where you are driving. Not all street signs are the same. That being said, typical sizes include 6 1/4″, 8″ and 9″heights with varying lengths.
There are many details that differ from one town or city to the next. For example, the color of the street signs is not always the same. While green is extremely common, there are many other colors that are used often including but not limited to white and blue. Some street signs are plain, only containing text. Others are full of other information such as the town logo, numbers, or other symbols such as an arrow or a poppy. The one thing that never changes is that all street signs are easy to read.
Even if there is additional information, to go along with the text, it will always be clear to read. Even though you see and read street signs on a daily basis, you may never actually touch one. For this reason, there is a good chance that you have never thought twice about what these are made of. Since street signs are out in the elements – such as the sun, rain, and wind – it is important that they are durable. This is why most signs are made from aluminum. With this material, cities and towns can be rest assured that they will not have to make changes on a regular basis.It is quite common for aluminum street signs to stand up to the test of time, keeping their form for many years.
Who uses Street Signs?
As an everyday person, it goes without saying that you don’t have much use for street signs at home. Sure, you are going to use these as you travel and from a personal perspective you can purchase them as a gift for a friend, or for decorating a Man Cave, basement, or bedroom. From a practical standpoint, groups like businesses, cottage owners and property management companies use street signs to properly direct people on their properties.
