Section 6: Storage and TransportAnchor: #i1022751
Traffic signs should be stored under cover in a dry place and arranged so that warping or disfigurement does not occur. Shelves and vertical compartments are usually constructed in such a manner that the reflectorized face does not come in contact with the adjacent signs.
Store all finished signs off the ground and in a vertical position until installed. Store finished sheet aluminum substrate signs in a weatherproof building. Extruded aluminum substrate signs may be stored outside.
Waxed paper must not be used to protect stored signs.Anchor: #i1022776
Care should be exercised in transporting signs from storage to field location, since the sign face is a soft material and can be damaged very easily. Signs should be individually wrapped in heavy paper or separated by grooved racks.
