Sign Base

Permanent or Temporary Signage

Bolt Down or Fill Up

Ideal Shield’s Octagon Sign Bases are a more uniquely designed plastic sign base system for your parking lots, campuses and curbside pickup programs. 

Following a quick and easy installation, our lightweight sign base requires no maintenance. Compared to the regular 300lbs concrete sign bases, our product weighs just 30lbs, resulting in significantly reduced freight costs. 

At a fraction of the cost of concrete alternatives, our durable plastic sign bases can withstand high wind speeds when installed with the recommended sized signage and/or properly filled. 

Engineered to last, Ideal Shield’s Octagon Sign Base creates a maintenance-free product to improve your parking lot appearance and safety.

Each side of the Octagon Sign Base is made of 8″ W x 22″ H durable polyethylene plastic, while the signpost consists of 98″ H x 1.9″ W steel pipe sleeved with a high-density thermoplastic. 

The Octagon Sign Base arrives hollow, allowing you the option of filling the base with gravel, sand, or concrete, depending on your stability needs. To ensure an even more secure system, the base also comes with a bolt-in installation application option, ensuring a permanent fit for your establishment. 

Available in any color to fit your corporate color scheme, Ideal Shield’s Octagon Sign Base also includes customizable options.

Our Customers

What our customers are saying

“We purchased some sign bollard covers from you all a few months ago and they work great! So far we’ve had 0 signs fall over in our parking lot. This time last year we had 2-3 fall over so already we’ve saved roughly $500 dollars in damages.”

William Myers - Amazon

“I have been truly impressed with the covers we bought from you so many years ago. They have been exposed to direct sunlight for years and have not faded one bit after all this time! Kudos!”

Mark C. - UBT

“First and foremost, we have loved the sign bases. They have gone through the various states of weather that Minnesota has to offer and they are withstanding the weather and doing a great job for us. At this time, we have all of our needs, however, after the Super Bowl and when we head into our spring events we could be looking to purchasing additional signs. ” 

Representative from US Bank Stadium, home of the Minnesota Vikings & Super Bowl 52
