Telespar Sign Support Systems are designed with ease of installation and replacement in mind
Multi-directional traffic sign mounting and viewing is possible with Telespar Sign Support Systems because of the the square tubular structure of the sign post. All four sides of the post can be utilized, allowing traffic signs to be mounted back-to-back, or on adjacent sides.
Multiple signs can be mounted on a single post, cutting down on materials. Additionally, the unique telescoping square tube structure of Telespar sign post adds strength and rigidity, making for superior wind load handling and torsional stability.
Telespar Sign Support Systems are galvanized, for enhanced resistance to all types of weather conditions, and are available with two hole styles: pre-punched holes or knockout holes (otherwise known as Qwik-Punch). Both post styles offer 7/16” holes, on all four sides, that are 1” on center.
The tubing for Telespar Sign Support Systems is produced through a unique manufacturing process that permits tubular sections of different sizes to telescope into the next larger size. Tubing sizes range from 1-1/2” -2-1/2” on the outside dimension, with each graduation increasing by 1/4″. Posts are manufactured up to 24 foot length.
