Base-Bolted Steel Sign Posts

Franklin Industries’ base-bolted sign posts offer many of the advantages of Eze-Erect sign posts at lower cost, except there is no retaining feature. They are an economical alternative when this feature is not required.

Connection Strength

The base-bolted connection develops the full design strength of the sign post; so comparable signs can be supported reliably.

Full Versatility

Base-bolted sign posts will support any type of warning, regulatory or guide signs, from small signs on single posts to very large signs or sign clusters on multiple posts. Base-bolted sign posts also work well for construction and temporary signing. Franklin Industries’ base-bolted sign posts can hold your sign dependable, whatever the message.

Low Labor Costs/High Salvage Value

Base posts, sign posts, and sign panels are often reusable after impact with an errant vehicle. If damaged, sign posts can be cut into base posts. But more importantly, because of the breakaway action, expensive sign panels, the major cost component of a sign installation, can most likely be reused.

NCHRP – FHWA has accepted Franklin Industries sign posts in single and multiple post installations for all Federal-aid routes and projects.
