Sign structures must be designed to withstand several
different environmental factors at once. The first criteria that
must me addressed are the load and stress factors exterted by the
force of the wind. Windload and wind pressure are the most common
cause for failure of a sign structure.
A sign structure can basically be broken down into
1) A foundation.
2) A structural support or supports.
3) The sign itself.
Each of the three components has to be designed for the specific
dimensions and location of your sign. Some factors include:
Overall height above ground
Size of the sign or signs
Predictable wind pressure as determined by your
Soil type and/or quality
Other environmental or design factors affecting the structure
