DOT Signs
SIGNFIX Modular Sign Support
Systems are recognized by sign
fabricators as a quicker, easier and
cost effective method to mount all
sizes of signs to any size or shape
of pole.
SIGNFIX Large Channel Extrusion with 3M™ VHB™ tape used to
assemble and mount this 12' x 8' sign. This 4-panel .080 gauge
aluminum sign was assembled in 25 minutes and installed in less
than one hour.
Stiffener placement was
determined using the
SIGNFIX Stiffener Spacing
software.
SIGNFIX Channel Extrusions are
manufactured from 6000-T5
Aluminum alloy to provide excellent
corrosion resistance and high
strength structural properties. Each
channel extrusion has the identical
channel hardware configuration which
allows the simple mix and match
design for attaching hardware to
round poles, square posts, and I-beam
structures.
SIGNFIX Mounting Hardware is
manufactured from Type 304 stainless
steel to prevent corrosion while
providing reliable strength.
SIGNFIX Cantilever Arms provide
full-length sign support for sign
lengths up to 72" (or 9.5 square feet
of surface area) and .125" thick, while
meeting 80MPH wind load requirements.
Signfix Cantilever Arms provide
improved bi-directional visibility and
require less maintenance.
SIGNFIX Bolts are provided with an
M8 metric thread, have an ultimate
tensile strength of 10,153 PSI and
should be tightened to a maximum
torque load of 19 ft – Lbs.
Cantilever Signs
Las Vegas, Nevada
specified SIGNFIX
cantilever arms for their
oversized street name
and block number
signs. Strength and
ease-of-installation
were determining
factors in this decision.
Louisiana D.O.T. field office signs were mounted
using the SIGNFIX Cantilever Arm System. The
signs are 5' x 2' and 5' x 1' and made from 0.080
gauge aluminum.
Oversized Street Name Signs
San Diego, California has been
improving and enlarging their
signs. SIGNFIX was chosen
because of its ease of application
and strength. These 10' wide,
18" tall signs were installed using
Medium Channel Extrusion and
Universal Channel Clamps.
Installation time less than 5
minutes per sign.

Signs
SIGNFIX Medium Channel
Extrusion was used to
offset mount this 4' X 5' guide sign away from
traffic. Installation time less than 5 minutes.
This 4' x 4' .080 gauge
aluminum sign was
installed in less than 5
minutes using SIGNFIX
Large Corner Angle
Channel Extrusion and
Universal Channel Clamps. Using the SIGNFIX Channel
Spacing Software, the sign was designed for a 100 mph
wind load according to AASHTO specifications.
Mast Arm Signs
These oversized guide signs were
mounted to the mast arm using
SIGNFIX Medium Channel and
Universal Channel Clamp. The
largest sign is 6' x 6'.
This 2' x 6' sign was assembled and installed
with Medium Channel Extrusion and Universal
Channel Clamps. Built for high wind loads, the
sign can be quickly mounted level in spite of
the mast arm angle.
Other Applications
This 48" stop sign kept tearing
through the rivets and washers
used to mount it to the
pre-punched tubing. Once again
SIGNFIX Extrusions and RHS
Clamps were used to solve the
problem.
Approved application, Aurora,
Colorado. This 2' x 7' double
sided sign has 3/4" of it’s outside
edge framed using SIGNFIX
Cantilever Arms and SX0176
“Tee” extrusion.

Forming a band clamp and operating the
C00169 and C00369 tool
1. Pull appropriate length of
band from BAND-IT Tote
(approx. 3 1/2 times the diameter
of the pole or mast arm for a
single-wrapped clamp and
double-wrapped clamp. Add
6 – 8 inches for both singlewrapped and double-wrapped
clamps to accommodate the
tail and bracket design.) Cut
the band using one of the
BAND-IT tools with built-in
cutter. One end of the band will
be very flat and the opposite
end will be slightly bent from
the cut-off.
2. Holding the buckle in one
hand, with ears pointing upward
and to the right as shown,
insert the bent or twisted end
of the band through the buckle
“bridge,” past the ears and
bend so that at least 2 inches
are underneath the buckle.
3. Squeeze the “lip wrap” to
flatten the bend preventing
“pull-out” during tensioning.
6. Place band in open slot of
tool nose and gripper block.
Move into slot as far as possible
to prevent buckle from sliding
into tool nose. With thumb on
band gripper lever, apply tension
by turning handle of tool. After
tension is created, it is no
longer necessary to hold the
band gripper lever as it locks
itself under tension. When band
stops moving through buckle,
maximum tension has been
applied. Stop turning handle.
7. To set the lock and cut off
band, roll tool nose over buckle,
relieving a slight amount of
tension by backing off tension
handle during this fold over
operation. Failure to back off
tension handle throughout the
entire course of roll over may
result in breaking band. On the
other hand, releasing too much
tension may result in a loose
clamp.
8. Pull cutting handle to cut the
band.
9. Remove tool, holding stub of
band down with thumb.
4. Wrap band through sign
bracket and around the pole or
mast arm and thread through
bridge as shown.
5. Repeat a second wrap of
band through the bracket and
buckle for a continuous double-wrap application. Doublewrapping develops greater
radial compression than singlewrapped clamps and more
than doubles the holding
strength for heavy objects and
high wind loads.
10. Hold clamp tail down
between ears while hammering
the buckle ears down to hold
band stub in place. This
completes the secure BAND-IT
clamp.
Fluted Pole Applications
When tensioning a conventional clamp over a
fluted pole, it is necessary
to extend the length of
the “lip wrap” several
inches to assure contact
with 2 or 3 flute ridges.
Buckle placement over a
ridge is important to provide support for the lock and
prevent the “lip wrap” from shifting.
