There is a strong argument to be made that aluminum was the single most important metal of the 20th century. The innovation and manufacturing developments that allowed aluminum to be used on a wide scale significantly changed products as different as soda, kitchen utensils, foil, airplanes, and beer kegs. And, of course, it also changed signage. Aluminum is great because it is quite inexpensive and has an incredibly impressive strength to weight ratio; even though aluminum is lighter than most other commercially available materials, it is still remarkably strong. This makes aluminum signs, portable, easy to install, and durable.
Aluminum can be used for pretty much any type of sign. While aluminum can and has been used in lots of different sharp looking promotional and business signage, aluminum is most common in informational signs. The most typical of these utilitarian aluminum signs is probably the thin, rectangular signs that you often see posted on fences or walls. Aluminum signs are probably the best option for when you want an inexpensive sign with a simple message and that is easy to install in a number of different places. Some common examples of aluminum signs include:
- No Smoking
- Area Under Surveillance
- Enter / Exit
- Store Hours
- No Parking at Any Time / certain times
- Private Property / No Trespassing
- Danger / Caution
- Shipping and Receiving
- Fire Escape
- Business Name
- Different types of wayfinding signage
- And more!
