72 pounds, with a low center of gravity for added stability. We also have a 75-pound base weight for high wind areas with larger signs.
Simply just tip on its bottom side edge and roll the round base into position. Grab the top of the side post and place you hand halfway down the signpost and push into position. If you need a cart to move, we have two size sign base carts, for our 72-pound sign base and our 150-pound sign base post system.
You can either tip-and-roll into position, or if you need an easier way to move around, we offer a sign base mover cart for longer distances. We have 2 sizes available – one for our standard 72-pound sign base and one for our additional 75-pound sign base weight, for a total weight of 150 pounds.
Yes, we have an add-on sign base weight that will add 75 pounds to our sign base, for a total of more than 145 pounds. It also creates a wider base, making it less likely to tip.
We offer thermoformed plastic safety yellow, or handicap blue covers that snap on top of the sign base for higher visibility. The plastic covers can be ordered in custom colors, however, require a minimum quantity order.
We have 3 signpost hole sizes. They can be ordered with a square hole to accommodate a 1-¾” square perforated or smooth, square post with drilled holes. The square hole base will accommodate a U-channel post as well. We can also custom-fabricate square tubes to any configuration and powder coat any color. We also have sign bases with a round post holes to accommodate a 2-⅜” round Schedule 40 plastic post or aluminum post and a 1-⅔” round post. The round plastic 2-⅜” post is our most-popular signpost base.
We generally recommend a 5’ signpost for our sign bases. This cuts down on the wind shear that might tip the sign base over in higher wind areas. If you require a taller post, please order our 75-pound sign base weight that attaches to the bottom of our 72-pound sign base. This added sign base weight will enable you to go up to the MUTCD height of 7’ to 8’, use a metal post for this application as plastic may bend in the wind. Please check with your local sign ordinances for the regulations and or sign code requirements.
