A well-organized parking lot is not complete without the proper signage to direct traffic safely. Unclear or poorly installed traffic signs can mean chaos for your facility’s parking lot. Stop signs and directional signs are most commonly seen in parking lots, but of equal importance are signs that indicate parking lot rules for certain vehicles, such as tractor-trailers or small cars, or other warnings.
While the signage for public roadways are installed and maintained by the governing transportation authority, the parking lot’s owner is nearly always a private enterprise that is responsible for its own signs. Liability issues often result in the installation of higher-quality signs in commercial parking lots than are found on many public roadways.
The various signs used in parking lots today are made from custom aluminum sheets and covered with plastic coatings that are highly reflective. Parking lot owners commonly use oversized signs mounted on heavier-gauge stainless steel posts instead of road signs that are sometimes smaller and installed on lighter-weight alloy post, although this is oftentimes not a necessity.
