A-Frame Signs: Do you need one?

What is an A-frame sign, and do you really need one?

An A-Frame sign is a double sided, freestanding sign with a two faces mounted onto two frames which have legs. There’s a hinge at the top and a stay in between the two frames, which allows the legs to move slightly outward, creating the shape of the letter A, hence the name.


Seen above is a typical A-frame, at the standard size of 900mm high x 600mm wide. Our A-frame signs also have a carry handle to make it easier to take in and out, while we can also option the A-frames with wheels. Typical sizes are 900x600mm, 1200x900mm and 1800x1200mm.

The question is whether you need one or not. If you have a shopfront and you want to catch passing traffic during your shop hours, then an A-frame sign would be great to have. It’s especially handy to have a sign you can put out at the start of the day and then take in when you’ve finished. However, if you want the sign to remain outside permanently, then perhaps a freestanding metal sign might be better.

A-frame signs are a great addition to most retail businesses, and as they are made from hard-wearing metal, and powdercoated, you can be sure they’ll last for many years.
