Metal Sign Frames
Metal Road Sign Frames For Sale
Our metal road sign frames are produced from 25 x 25 x 3mm angled mild steel, they are the “traditional” temporary road sign frame. Sometimes referred to as Stanchion frames, our metal frames are finished in a durable grey paint to resist rust.
These frames are great for small road work operations, were easy to transport signage is required. These frames are available in an array of sizes to suit all sign face shapes. Each frame also incorporates a sandbag bar on the back legs for ballast bags. By using the proper ballast the wind resistance of these signs is massively increased.
We recommend using Zintec faces (thin coated steel) with these frames, the faces are clipped into the frames using metal clips which are available separately. Using clips instead of riveting the faces into the frames allows for quick and easy changing of sign faces if it is ever required.
Metal Frame Sizes & Shapes
These frames come in a variety of sizes and shapes to suit the different faces that are available. The common frame sizes that we stock for next day delivery are:
For use with warning signs such as men at work
These are used with “circular” sign face diagrams such as No entry.
Commonly used for instructional signs and some directional signs
Commonly used for diversion and diverted traffic sign frames.
Used for pedestrian signs commonly seen on footpaths.
Supplementary Plate Options
Some triangular and square sign frames are often used with supplementary plates, for these instances you will need to choose a frame with a supplementary plate slot. If you do need a supplementary plate do not forget to order extra clips for the plate!
What are the differences between quick fit signs and Stanchion Frames?
Although these two sign systems appear very similar they do have some significant differences.
The sign faces on the quick fit sign system sits on the face of the frame, with toggle pins that lock the sign face in place. They hold the sign higher from the ground and are made from heavier-duty steel.
The key benefits are that you can change sign faces quickly without tools and that it is a one frame fits all option. All similar sized faces can fit onto the same face, with and without supplementary plates.
These are a cheaper alternative to quick fit sign faces, they are also smaller in size than quick fit frames so can be easier to transport.
The downside to these frames is that you require the correct sign frame shape for each face. For examples, you cannot use a triangular face in a square frame. You will also need a hammer or other lever to remove clips should you wish to change the sign face.
