You have probably wondered what material was used for all those billboards and signs a person can see while driving a long a street in a big city. It’s been calculated that in some of the biggest cities in the world, the density of such signs can reach 1 in every 50 meters. It sounds like too much, don’t you think so? But we are not here to discuss whether there are too many signs or whether they are responsible for distracting the drivers’ attention. What is going to be discussed in this article is the material they are made out of and why. So let’s start with the first answer: “aluminum signs” is how 99% of the signs in the streets could be described. So far so good but here comes the difficult part: why aluminum is the most used material when it comes to the signs.
It should not be surprising to anybody that it all comes from the many advantages which the aluminum’s chemical and physical characteristics have. Let’s take the weight! You have certainly heard that aluminum is one of the lightest meals on the planet. Why else would it be used for the plane manufacturing? The super light weight makes the aluminum signs really easy-to-install and the whole process may take like a couple of hours which is really little, especially when compared with any other types of metal signs and their process of installation which can reach several weeks or even a whole month.
However, the easy installation is not the only great thing which could be mentioned about the aluminum signs. Another advantage which the aluminum offers is the easy maintenance. Once the signs are installed, they will stand there like new and will not need maintenance for years. Unfortunately, the same could not be told about signs made of other materials which require to be maintained from several times in a year to a couple of times in a month, which really is a lot!
And after all that said, what you are probably thinking is that aluminum signs are extremely expensive and unaffordable to most of the companies which may like to advertise their product or service. But no, it’s just on the contrary! In fact, the low price is considered to be one of the greatest advantages which the aluminum signs offer. It’s like the perfect end of a perfect story.
