The 18" AHEAD stencil is a large and commonly used stencil in the industry, making it a must-have for any contractor’s collection. Typically, this stencil is used to mark parking lots, garages, driveways, walkways, and other pavements. Its width allows it to fit in most spaces and be easily seen by oncoming traffic and pedestrians. It can be combined with other industry standard stencils such as “TURN", “SCHOOL", “ZONE", “LANE", and many more. This stencil is manufactured in the USA and comes with a warranty that guarantees the product to be free of any impediments or defects.
The measurements and specifications of the stencil comply with industry standards and are fit for use in most public areas. When painted, the stencil measures 18" high by 72" wide, making a bold statement against the pavement. The material itself measures 24" high by 78" wide, giving plenty of extra space on each side to allow for overspray. The stencil is printed on a single sheet of the material, making it easy to use, clean, store, and transport from job to job.
There are four material grade options available for the make of your stencil. The most durable grade is the .080 ALU, which is a rigid 5052 aluminum that lasts forever. This indestructible material can be used for any heavy job, and is also useful for preformed thermoplastic striping. The next thickest material is the ?" PRO-Grade LDPE, which is an industry standard. This commonly used material is recommended by professionals as it offers years of durability and thousands of reuses without showing signs of wear or tear. If you’re invested in a light-duty or custom job, the 1/16" LDPE is an affordable option. This grade is flexible without sacrificing durability, and can last a long time when used sparingly. The .030" HIPS is ultra thin, and adds more flexibility for a custom fit.
