The 12" THRU stencil is a common stencil that makes a useful addition to any serious contractor’s collection. Stripers who are invested in parking lot and driveway projects will find this a handy stencil to have for most jobs. Its size makes it perfect for printing in smaller drive through lanes or to mark areas with no through traffic. It can be used by itself or combined with other industry standard stencils such as “DRIVE", “NO", and “TRAFFIC" to give further direction and clarity to passersby. This stencil is made in the USA and offers a warranty which guarantees the product to be free of any impediments or defects.
The measurements and specifications of the stencil comply with industry standards and are a great fit for parking lots and small drive through lanes. When painted, the stencil measures 12" high by 38" wide, which is an industry standard fit on the smaller side. The material itself reaches 18" high by 44" wide, giving several inches of space on all sides of the stencil to allow for overspray. The stencil is printed on a single sheet, which makes it easy to use, clean, and store.
There are four material grade options to choose from for the make of your stencil. The .080 ALU is the most durable and most rigid grade, offering a 5052 aluminum that lasts forever. This stencil grade can also withstand thermoplastic striping and is cost-effective in the long run. The ?" PRO-Grade LDPE is another durable option, as it is the industry standard for this type of stencil. It can last up to 10 years when properly cared for and withstand thousands of reuses before ever showing any signs of wear. This is the most recommended grade by industry professionals. The 1/16" LDPE is the counterpart to the PRO-Grade, but with half the thickness. This adds flexibility for a custom or light-duty project. The thinnest grade available is the .030" HIPS, an ultra flexible material that lays flat for a one-time fit.
