Metal signs are the most durable for outdoor use. There are several types of metal to choose from:
- Steel Signs: Thin metal that is a great value, yet very durable. Perfect for a real estate listing.
- Max Metal: Two sheets of aluminum with a solid plastic core, this revolutionary metal helps minimize rust and is very durable outdoors. For larger sizes, it is recommended to use Heavy Duty Max metal which is made with thicker aluminum on each side.
- Aluminum: .040" aluminum is a great metal to use if it is being attached to a building or something with a substantial backing. It is lightweight and flexible. For signs larger than 2' x 4' in size, it is recommended to use .080'' aluminum. This type of aluminum is used for most street signs and is very durable.
