For a versatile and flexible stencil that can be used for almost any striping project, invest in the 18" ONE stencil. This stencil is a must-have addition to any contractor’s collection, as it is used in a variety of ways. Typically, this stencil can be used to mark small lanes, parking garage exits, driveways, and more. It can be combined with other industry standard signs such as “WAY", “ONLY", and “AHEAD" to give further direction to oncoming traffic and pedestrians. This stencil is made in the USA and offers a warranty which guarantees the product to be delivered without any impediments or defects.
The measurements and specifications of this stencil is compliant with industry standards and cut for accuracy and precision. When painted, the stencil measures 18" high by 40" wide, making a bold statement against any type of pavement. The material itself measures 24" high by 46" wide, giving several inches of space on all sides of the stencil for overspray allowance. The stencil is printed on a single sheet, which makes it easy to clean and store.
There are several stencil grade options that can be chosen to make your 18" stencils. If your project requires multiple uses of the stencils over a long period of time, the two best options are the .080 ALU and the ?" LDPE. The ALU is a rigid aluminum that makes the stencil indestructible. You can reuse the stencil indefinitely without it ever showing signs of wear or tear. The ?" LDPE PRO-Grade is the most common industry standard, allowing the stencil to be reused thousands of times before ever needing replacement. If you have a custom that only requires a few uses of the stencils, a thinner grade might be your best option. The 1/16" LDPE is the PRO-Grade counterpart with half the thickness. For something even thinner, the .030" HIPS is cost effective for a one-time or custom use. It is made from PVC and lays flat out of the box.
