S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S • July 2017 • 83 SDG Having two posts and two caps powder coated locally should be easy for most sign shops. We are lucky to have access to powder coating equipment at our sister company. Baking the Tiger-Drylac "Steel Rack White" finish takes about 15 minutes. The installation in the field is a quick process as the posts simply slide in place over the protruding studs of the frame. "Nyloc nuts" with washers are set at just the right offset so the sign is fairly snug but will still slide in place. Soapy water is used as a lubricant when sliding the posts over the mounting studs. The nut over the top stud can be accessed last and tightened to secure the posts firmly. The last two steps, done in the field, was to touch up the flush mounted rivets carefully, and put a drop or two of silicone on the inside of the post caps and set them into place.
