Why FIBER BRITE ? ®

Government Approved

Replaces Most Substrates

Fiber Brite® is a Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) that comes with a ten-year warranty. FRP is the only plastic to pass a series of laboratory and field tests to meet government plastic sign panel requirements for traffic and street sign usage. Fiber Brite®plastic is more compatible with plastic reflective sheeting than aluminum, which has to be treated with an alodine coating to help adhere to the sheeting. Fiber Brite® signs last longer, roads stay safer and signs are replaced less frequently.

Fiber Brite® is available in different sizes and thicknesses to be used under every condition and for practically any task. Fiber Brite® replaces up to 1” thick wood and aluminum laminates at a lower cost. The panel may be used in place of labor-intensive MDO without painting, priming or sealing. It’s a great substitute for 0.30 - 0.100 gauge aluminum and 3mm - 1Omm PVC without the outdoor performance failures. lt’s the substrate of choice around water, chemicals and electricity or where outdoor durability is important.

SUPERIOR OUTDOOR LIFE Fiber Brite® is made with a polyester thermosetting resin that hardens and becomes irreversibly set when cured. This procedure allows the material to resist fading, denting, creasing, shattering, warping, rusting and delaminating. Fiber Brite® is UV stabilized and not affected by extreme heat or severe cold. lt may be utilized in extreme weather conditions: from desert highways in Arizona to Colorado ski resorts. This is why FRP is used as the product of choice for a variety of applications such as sign panel production, boat and motor home construction, truck and trailer floors.

Vandal Resistant Fiber Brite® offers no scrap value to thieves. lts unique polyester composition allows the sign to flex under extreme pressure and then rebound back to shape. The fiberglass in the panel provides a pound for pound strength greater than steel, because most chemicals don’t affect the panel, graffiti washes off. The color is impregnated into the entire panel so a scratch or a chip will not affect the overall visibility and the need for expensive background sheeting is eliminated.

57 Shapes & Sizes 8 Colors 4 GRADES of reflective sheeting 8 Reflective Finish colors 4 thicknesses

Decorative Panels with Sign borders, assemblies & fiber posts An assortment of decorative posts, panels, frames and hanging brackets are available to dress up your town or storefront with attractive, long lasting signs. Fiber Brite® is a double-sided sign panel available in many vibrant colors, standard sheets, and 57 precut shapes and sizes. Clearly identifiable and appealing signs evoke a unique look and invigorating feel to the community. For increased night visibility, the panels can be sheeted with reflective finishes. Add Sign Borders at a small cost to any of our shapes to enhance the sign’s appearance. Mount your sign on our Fiberglass Post and eliminate the rusting, painting, twisting and bending of metal posts.

Easily Fabricated No painting, priming, or edge sealing is necessary. Fiber Brite® is receptive to paint, ink, vinyl, heat transfer, and die sublimation. FRP may be punched, routed, engraved, screwed, nailed, glued, drilled or cut using standard shop equipment. The panels come in different shapes and sizes, rounded corners or custom made holes. Fiber Brite® sign panels are not affected by most chemicals, water, or electricity. Fiber Brite® does not oxidize, dent or twist like aluminum.

Sign tips for savingS how to reduce your sign costs by reducing vandalism, accidents and aluminum theft. New government MUTCD sign regulations dictate the use of brighter, higher cost reflective sheeting along with larger, more visible street signs. These new regulations will increase your sign costs substantially. Vandals deface, steal and bend these high priced aluminum sign panels that are covered with expensive reflective sheeting.

A) Reduce Your Replacement Cost Vandalism, Theft and Accidents Represent 75% of all Sign Replacement. Fiberglass panels are less expensive. They do not bend, twist, dent and are not stolen for scrap value like aluminum. Their impregnated colors (Blue, Green, White, Red, Yellow, Black, Brown and Ivory) give you the opportunity to eliminate background sheeting which represents almost half of your sign panel costs. Fiber Brite速 F.R.P. is the only plastic to meet the Government Specifications for Plastic Traffic Sign Panels. Millions of square feet of Fiberglass sign panels have been used in every type of climate for over a decade. Fiberglass is the panel of choice around water, electricity, chemical or sunlight. Protect your street, warning and stop signs with Fiber Brite速 F.R.P. Sign Panels. Use our new decorative Fiberglass Post and eliminate the rust and corrosion associated with metal posts. Our 10 year warranty* for all of your sign panels, post, and sheeting will help reduce your overall budget for signage.

B ) Double Mount Street Sign System - The Best Defense Against Sign Theft Fiberglass Vandal Resistant Sign panels mount directly to each side of any post and are bolted together on the end with sign spacers or pop rivets. The added strength provided by the post in this system will greatly reduce the amount of sign replacements and eliminate the costs of sign mounting caps and cross pieces. New specifications for street signs have increased the length and wind load on the signs making it imperative to increase the holding power of the sign to the post. The Fiber Brite速 Double Mount System does just that. Instead of spending more money on larger brackets to hold these bigger signs, reduce your cost with the Fiber Brite速 Double Mount System. Added rigidity comes from a singleface sign bolted on each side of a square, round or u-channel post. This eliminates the brackets and cross pieces. Spacers on each end give more strength and greater wind resistance. New FHWA Regulations will create longer sign durability, more visible signs, less accidents and lower replacement costs. Spacers

new fhwa regulations

New Commercial & government

2012 regulations NEW REQUIREMENTS FOR MAINTAINING TRAFFIC SIGN RETROREFLECTIVITY On December 21, 2007, The Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) issued Final Regulations governing the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways (MUTCD); Maintaining Traffic Sign Retroreflectivity. This Final Rule is far reaching in effect and applies to most regulatory, warning, street name, and both ground-mounted and overhead guide signs - whether permanent, temporary or portable - on all public roads and private property where the public is invited to travel.

Non-Compliant (Incorrect)

Compliant (Correct)

Non-Compliant (Incorrect)

Compliant (Correct)

This rule is a result of a Congressional directive in Section 406 of the Department of Transportation and related Agencies Appropriations Act, 1993 (Public Law 102-388; Oct. 6, 1992). That act directed the Secretary of Transportation to revise the MUTCD to include a standard for minimum levels of retroreflectivity that must be maintained for traffic signs and pavement markings. This rule applies only to traffic signs. The FHWA is expected to promulgate a rule for pavement markings at a later date.

NEW federal rules impact private property As a property owner or manager, you need to understand the implications and risks associated with this law, and what to do to keep your customers safe while traveling on your property. If the public travels on property that you own or manage, your traffic signs, pavement markings, and other traffic control devices are now required to conform to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). Effective January 16, 2007, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) amended the United States Code (U.S.C.) to clarify the applicability of the MUTCD to ANY road open to public travel. That includes privately owned property where the public travels. Examples are shopping centers, office and apartment complexes, and even recreation facilities.

NEW federal rules on break-away sign supports are required The MUTCD, which is the national standard used for all roads open to public travel, states that roadside sign supports in the clear zone shall be breakaway, yielding, or shielded. This requirement applies to roads, whether publicly owned or privately owned. Although State highway Agencies are generally in compliance already the FHWA is concerned that many local agencies may not be aware of this requirement.
