Concrete is Not Ideal for Sign Bases, Parking Blocks

More and more companies are veering away from concrete when installing or replacing sign bases and parking blocks. I don’t blame them. Concrete is heavy and expensive to ship, difficult to move, and it crumbles into an unsightly mess.

Concrete degrades over time, as anyone who has ever complained about potholes in the roads is aware. There are numerous causes of concrete degradation; weather conditions, road salt, structural damage from impact, chemicals. The list of concerns goes on.

On the other hand, Ideal Shield’s sign bases and parking blocks are both made from recycled polyethylene plastic. This gives the item and your parking lot a much cleaner, aesthetically appealing look. 

But that’s not all. 

The list of benefits is a long one: 

  • Light weight
  • Easy to ship
  • Simple to install
  • Portable
  • You can have pallets shipped to you instead of paying a monstrous freight bill for concrete
  • Doesn’t break down
  • Doesn’t require maintenance
  • Feel good knowing that you’re using a recycled product.
