Railroad signs are made of heavy-duty aluminum with high-intensity prismatic film, extruded into a dog bone shape. Innovative “Dogbone” metal extrusion is practically inflexible, ensuring that your sign does not twist or bend in the wind. Standard metal backings often fail in gusts. Competitor signs are often flat 80 mil thick, while most railroads highly recommend a “dogbone” shape to prevent the sign from twisting in the wind. States require tapered dogbone design for enhanced stability. This adds to both the efficacy and longevity of the sign.
Absolutely none! We offer free customization. There are no direct or hidden charges for adding a particular piece of information or designing the Railroad Crossing Sign. However, not all our Railroad signs are customizable - just look for our “Custom” templates. If you want to design a sign from scratch, click here. After you’re done with customization, you can also opt for our free design help option where dedicated design professionals tweak your signs to make them look even better.
The actual brightness of the sign color depends on the light source.
Fluorescent yellow is approved by the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for use on all yellow warning signs such as no-passing zone, stop ahead, yield ahead, and roadway alignment signs such as curve arrows and chevron signs. Fluorescent reflective signs are used for extra emphasis and conspicuity at dawn and at early evening times, which are considered the most dangerous times of the day.
Fluorescent yellow-green is officially required in a school zone or pedestrian/bicyclist area since 1992, when the FHWA experimented with this color on five pedestrian and bicycle crossings in Washington D.C. The results of the study indicated the FYG signs caught the attention of drivers more effectively than yellow.
