4'x4' & 4'x8' signs installed in our PVC post kit hold up to about 55 MPH winds. The frame kit meets both ASCE 7-02 and FBC 2004 engineering standards. The failure rate is less than 1%. The smaller signs with the skirt stand hold up to about 45MPH winds.
The post kit is designed for easy assembly and should not take more than 30 – 45 minutes to complete the installation. There are top & bottom tracks that the sign slides into, and then the two tracks slide into holes in the vertical posts. Once put into place there are a few screws that will hold the set together. You then can install the post kit directly into the ground by digging a hole 18”-24” deep and compacting the dirt around it or you can purchase t-bars from a local hardware store, pound them into the ground and slide the post kit on top (recommended for frozen ground).
