Sign Base

Permanent or Temporary Signage

Bolt Down or Fill Up

Ideal Shield’s Octagon Sign Bases are a renovated way to safeguard your parking lot and increase visibility for any and every building exterior. Another sign base option to our portable Pyramid sign base, this cost-effective, durable product will make a lasting first impression.

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, our heavy-duty, durable plastic sign bases can withstand high wind speeds and daily wear and tear.

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 product is hollow, allowing our clients the option of filling the base with gravel, sand, concrete, water, or our new gel base, providing a firm and secure base location.

The Octagon Sign 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.

Frequently Asked

Standard colors are: Yellow, Red, Blue, and Black (We also offer custom colors for a $50.00 color charge).
The Octagon Sign Base is available in one option. For a portable option, see the Pyramid Sign Base.
We supply the bolt for the signpost into the base but do not supply the hardware for mounting signage to our sign systems.
The base gel will freeze at temperatures below 32 degrees F (0 degrees C) and will return to a firm, stable gel as temperatures rise above 32 degrees F. To allow for base gel and water mixture to expand when frozen, only fill base with 18 gallons. The base gel’s performance will not be affected by repeated freeze-thaw cycles and lasts up to 7 years.

What our customers are saying

“First and foremost, we have loved the 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
