The 36" STOP stencil is the most commonly used word in the industry, and therefore is a must-have addition to any contractor’s or striper’s collection. Its elongated length makes it easy to see by oncoming drivers and those coming at different speeds. It is typically used to mark bike paths, sidewalks, or residential roadways with a stop line in front. It can be used alone or combined with other popular industry signs such as “AHEAD" for further direction and clarity.
The specifications and measurements of the stencil complies with industry standards and is designed for accuracy. When painted, the stencil measures 54" wide by 36" high, making a bold statement against the pavement. The material itself measures 60" wide by 42" high, allowing space on all sides for overspray. The stencil is designed to fit on a single sheet, making it easy to use, clean, and transport.
There are four material grade options to choose from to meet your 36" stencil needs. If you are investing in a huge, industrial sized project, the .080" ALU is the toughest grade around. It is made of a 5052 aluminum that will last forever, allowing you to reuse your stencil time and time again. It can also withstand preformed thermoplastic striping for an indestructible use. The next thickest is the ?" PRO-Grade LDPE, which is an industry standard. Most professionals use this as it is affordable yet still provides countless reusability over several years when properly cared for. If you only need your stencil for a custom project, invest in the 1/16" LDPE or the .030" HIPS for something flexible and lightweight. It will last a long time as long as it is used sparingly, and lays flat on the ground for easy application. This is the best option for a one-time use.
