Our crews are professionals when it comes to properly installing signs in your parking lot. Having our crews install your signage is a huge plus for several reasons. First you do not have to purchase the proper equipment to get the job done correctly, and secondly, you will ensure that your signs are installed properly and according to code. In the event, you prefer to install your own signs here are a few tips.
The first step in installing the metal signage is coring, drilling holes in asphalt or concrete to set the signs. A drill bit for making a hole should be selected according to the thickness and density of the concrete. Older concrete is denser, so choosing a proper industrial strength bit to use is imperative as the drill bit of a conventional drill may break. Concrete which has been installed recently is not very dense, and a conventional rotary drill with a carbide tip should be adequate for coring, drilling the hole depending on the size of the poles used for fixing the metal signs.
The exact location for installing the metal signage should be finalized, based on the area of the parking lot and proper compliance and safety guidelines. For safety, the person drilling should wear goggles or a face mask to protect his or her eyes and face from the concrete which is being drilled. First, a guide hole should be made in the concrete, using the drill at a lower speed, which is easier to control. In case there is an obstruction, a hammer and other tools should be used to remove the obstruction. Concrete dust generated should be removed periodically. After the hole of the required depth has been made, it should be cleaned and the metal signage can be installed.
