Pavement Marking Stencils
Pavement markings, also known as road surface markings or legend markings, are a common feature seen on public road ways, driveways, private and public parking lots, and other paved and concrete surfaces. Among other uses, they are critical for keeping order, organizing traffic flow, and providing key visual cues regarding upcoming driving situations. In modern society, these pavement markings provide numerous benefits because they are commonly used to provide important situational information to foot traffic and motor traffic.
Commonly understood pavement markings allow both pedestrians and drivers to make informed decisions that result in safe travel for everyone. To that end, pavement marking stencils are designed to provide efficiency and consistency in the design and application of pavement markers. With the use of stencils, a small team can apply a wide variety of markings in a relatively short amount of time. Here at California Traffic Safety, we are proud to offer a wide range of standard and custom pavement marking stencils to make sure that your pavement markings provide people with the right information when and where they need it.
Pavement Marking Stencils
You see common, stencil created street legends on or near the street every day, and you may not even think about it. Let’s take a look at a few examples of common pavement markings created using stencils.
- Roadway Pavement Markings – Some of the most common roadway pavement markings made with stencils include STOP, YIELD, and SCHOOL ZONE markers that are placed across lanes of traffic.
- Curbside Pavement Markings – Often, curbs are painted using informational pavement marking stencils to designate a LOADING ZONE, FIRE LANE, or NO PARKING area.
- Parking Area Pavement Markings – In both parking garages and parking lots, stencils are used to create ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) pavement markings in specific parking stalls. They are also used to convey additional messages designed to inform and direct both motorists and pedestrians.
High Quality Pavement Marking Stencils in Sacramento, CA
California Traffic Safety is headquartered in Sacramento, CA and we pride ourselves on providing you with high quality pavement marking stencils for any need. Commonly, stencils for pavement marking, like those we offer, are used with either pavement paint or pavement thermoplastic to apply markings to pavement or concrete surfaces. Typically, our premium pavement stencils are constructed of high quality aluminum sheeting or a durable polymer plastic.
At California Traffic Safety, our custom aluminum stencils are crafted from .08” thick thermalized flat stock. That means that our aluminum pavement marking stencils always lay flat and clean up easily. The edges of our aluminum stencils differ slightly depending on if they are to be used with pavement thermoplastic or pavement paint. Those designed for use with thermoplastic lay flat to make application as easy as possible. The stencils designed for use with pavement paint, on the other hand, feature rolled edges to help contain paint overspray.
Our high quality plastic pavement marking stencils are designed specifically for efficient use in real applications. They are also very easy to clean up between jobs. At California Traffic Safety, we have chosen to use only the best 1/8“ Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) or High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) in creating all of our plastic pavement stencils. The specific plastic chosen for your stencil construction will be determined by the type of job you’re doing and what type of application process you will be using.
