Pavement Marking Stencils
Pavement markings and stencils are critical for keeping order in private or public parking lots, driveways, and on public roads. The benefits of pavement markings are numerous. They are key in organizing traffic flow on public roads by providing key visual cues to impending driving situations. Stenciled pavement markings provide important information to allow both foot and motorized traffic to make directional travel and parking decisions as well as provide for safe travel.
The most common method for applying legend markings on pavement is with a stencil and either pavement paint or pavement thermoplastic. Pavement stencils are typically made of durable polymer plastic or aluminum sheeting. You’ll find that the custom aluminum stencils from Capitol Barricade are made from thermalized .080” thick flat stock so they lay flat and clean up easily. Our aluminum pavement thermoplastic stencils lay flat and make the application simple. Our aluminum pavement paint stencils have rolled edges. The purpose of the rolled edges are to help contain paint overspray. Thermoplastic stencils typically have flat edges.
Our plastic pavement stencils perform efficiently in the field and clean easily for your next job. Capitol Barricade uses only the best 1/8” LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene) or HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) plastic pavement for creating stencils, depending on the application and job. We can help recommend the best stencil material for the job. Just ask! There are common street legends that you see everyday on the pavement. You might recognize them as: STOP, YIELD, and SCHOOL ZONE. You have also most likely seen curbs painted with LOADING ZONE, FIRE LANE and NO PARKING. In parking lots you see parking stalls painted with ADA legends and other messages used to direct both pedestrians and motorists. Pavement marking stencils provide efficiency and consistency in design.
