Post mounted signs are “planted” in hard or soft ground by digging an appropriately depthed hole, positioning the sign, applying concrete and then if necessary “repairing” the turf or another surface. Depending on the size of the sign and the environment, the holes are dug to varying depths (of course carefully and observing locations of water, electric and gas mains).
The photos above of Jobs we have done include post mounted signs from 1 foot to 20 feet, and signage that requires 1, 2 and sometimes 4 posts.
Post mounted signage may be needed because there is nothing else to fix the sign to, but is also often used to display signs up high ABOVE potential obstructions to the field of view, such as walls and foliage.
The face on post mounted signs may be a “flat panel”, a “folded tray” or have a “curved face”, typically post mounted signs are fabricated from sheet aluminium in our metal shop. The posts are usually either box section (square) or diameter (round) extruded steel or aluminium.
Signs mounted on a single post, but with multiple “Fingers” which are able to point in different directions
Monolith (or Totem) signs are attractive and impressive freestanding pillars that can be manufactured in a variety of shapes and styles
Arrays of signage that can be re-ordered, removed and replaced. Can be fitted to external walls, post mounted or installed as Monoliths
Signs that stand out, literally. Typically used in high streets and alleys. Projecting signs can be both beautiful and practical
Fabulous and quick service received from Wards for new signage. Would highly recommend
I commissioned Wards of Bristol to produce a bronze memorial plaque, which featured the intricate engraving of a scarce butterfly. The resulting work is beautiful and has completely surpassed my expectations.
The service received was also fast, courteous and well-priced, and I would gladly recommend Wards to anyone I know.
Ward Signs was incredibly professional, prompt, and just plain wonderful to deal with. The quality of the product far exceeded my expectations; I absolutely will order from Ward again!
