Plastics Extruder Pexco Celebrates Flight of the Boeing Dreamliner

Tacoma, Wash. (March 31, 2011) – Pexco has launched the Parking Lot Sign Post System, a lightweight, cost effective, durable plastic sign post and impact-resistant base. The easy to install plastic base and post are available from the Davidson Traffic Control Products division and appropriate for a variety of parking facility applications, from special event signage to handicap parking locations, and take minutes to install.

Unlike metal post systems, the Parking Lot Sign Post System is constructed of light weight UV-stabilized plastics to withstand all weather conditions, will bend when struck, return to vertical and will not damage vehicles. Customers can select from two post designs, a white X-Tube post, which is supported by two internal, corner to corner reinforcing cross beams made from stabilized polymers or a Y-Tube made from engineering thermoplastic resin and available in a rainbow of colors for enhanced visibility. Both square sign tubes lock securely in place to the base with either a simple bolt or a quick release pin. Posts are available in lengths of up to 8 feet and are pre-drilled for installation of 12” x 18” signs.

The new Parking Lot Base is designed to conserve space and reduce trip hazards. It is comprised of a high impact resistant UV-stabilized resin and will also accept a 1.75” square steel tube. Installation options include two-part roadway epoxy, thermoplastic adhesive pads or four anchor bolts, one in each corner of the base.

The Parking Lot Sign Post System is manufactured in Tacoma, Washington by Pexco’s Davidson Traffic Control Products division.
