Picking whether you want your wide load sign made out of aluminium or steel can be confusing. While our team will help you make the right decision, it's useful to have an idea of your own needs before you come to us. When choosing a material, considering some essential qualities and placing them against your requirements can steer you towards the right choice. These include:
Corrosion When choosing a sign, you should look at the possibility of corrosion. In this area, stainless steel signs fare better than those made from aluminium, which quickly oxidizes. Stainless steel signs might be a better option who regularly transport equipment in the rain.
Durability Out of the two, steel provides more durability, standing up to high degrees of pressure without deforming. On the other hand, aluminium signs are softer and can bend under massive force.
Cost Stainless steel requires a slightly more complicated process of production, which pushes up their prices. Aluminium is relatively lighter and more straightforward to produce, which is why it is cheaper.
Weight Stainless steel is heavier, and a sign made from it might weigh your truck down. Aluminium is lighter and is generally a better option for smaller trucks.
It's crucial to remember that both materials come with their pros and cons, and while one might be better for someone else, it might not meet your requirements. We only have aluminium and stainless steel of the highest quality and can shape wide load signs out of both of them.
If you're still not sure or would like to get a better idea of the kind of sign that you need, you can call us.
