GROUND MOUNT METHODS FOR INSTALLATION OF MONUMENTS, PYLON AND POLE SIGNS
The most common and effective ground mount methods of installation are:
Pouring a concrete pad is a safe way to prepare a site for signage. The concrete will be hard and dry when you are ready to install and the stands can be made at your leisure. To install simply bolt the plate at the bottom of the stand to the concrete base using Hilti-type expanding fasteners.
Pros: Easy install, easily removable.
Cons: Sign is not theft proof.
If more permanence is required, dig a big hole, put the stand in the hole, and fill with concrete.
Pros: Very durable.
Cons: Difficult to remove.
Some sites do not allow concrete for environmental reasons. This means digging a bigger hole and filling with rocks before covering with earth.
Pros: Environmentally friendly.
Cons: Time-consuming, not as durable.
Always remember to check with your local Zoning and Planning Departments before installing any projects.
