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 when properly filled. 

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.

At a fraction of the cost, our durable plastic sign bases can withstand high wind speeds and daily wear and tear, offering an appealing, yet efficient, support structure for signposts. The lightweight design and added wheels option also make it easier for daily employees to move and maneuver the sign throughout the day.

Custom Features

Available with or without wheels, Ideal Shield’s lightweight, durable Pyramid Sign Base design not only reduces shipping costs and is easily portable but it also creates a maintenance-free product.

Custom logos and slogans are also available for the sign base. That includes customized company logos and branding, as well as standard logos, like handicap accessible logos and construction area logos, which are available as well.

We can also match any company colors on the base or signpost for branding purposes on large quantity orders. We’ve already matched over 600 different colors. Contact us to learn more about the possibilities.

Frequently Asked

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.
We supply the bolt for the signpost into the base but do not supply the hardware for mounting signage to our sign systems. Sign brackets can be added on for an additional cost.
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.

What our customers are saying

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
