Sign Base

The Wheel Deal

Standout with your Signage

Ideal Shield’s Portable Pyramid Sign Bases are the perfect fit for all temporary or permanent signage needs, including Curbside Pick Up Services and Parking Lot signage.

Our Plastic Sign Base will not require painting or maintenance and features a quick and easy installation process. This cost-effective, heavy-duty product will make a lasting first impression. The portable sign base features a lightweight design to improve shipping costs and maneuverability but can also withstand the elements as the system is designed to withstand 75 mph winds with proper sized signage and filler option

Looking for an upgrade over concrete? Compared to the regular 300 lbs concrete sign bases, our product weighs just 30 lbs when empty. When the bases are properly filled (16 gallons in freezing temperatures; 19 gallons otherwise), the base can be over 200lbs, depending on the choice of filler. 

For an even more heavy-duty option, you can fill the base with concrete to get the best of both worlds.

We’ve matched over 600 colors so we can meet any color needs you may have. Add custom decals too to really take your bases to another level!

Standard Base Colors include OSHA Yellow, Red, Blue, and Black. We also offer Green, Brown, White, Orange, and Dark Gray upon request. Contact us for custom colors.
Starts at $125 for new colors or $50 for existing colors. Price can fluctuate depending on the exact color and how many need to be ordered.
Standard signpost colors are Yellow, Red, Blue, Black, Brown, White, Light Gray, Dark Gray, and Silver.
Each sign base includes (1) binding post screw to lock the signpost to the sign base, (2) plastic caps for the filler section of the base and the top of the signpost, as well as (2) adjustable sign brackets with (4) set screws and (4) hex nuts for easy installation of signage on the signpost. If wheels are purchased, each sign base will include the (2) wheels/rubber casters and (8) screws as well.
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 16 gallons. The base gel’s performance will not be affected by repeated freeze-thaw cycles and lasts up to 7 years. To remove the base gel, add salt to the mixture.
We recommend filling the Sign Base up with 19 gallons of water (and base gel mix) though if in freezing temperatures, we recommend 16 gallons of water to allow for expansion.
With the recommended sized signage and proper filler, the Pyramid Sign Base is designed to withstand 75 mph winds. When the signage is too large and/or the filler is not heavy enough, the Sign Base system can be vulnerable to tipping over. Contact our sales team today to learn more.

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
