A two-piece stencil kit, the 39" handicap stencil with background is an industry standard that is used by most professional stripers for handicap spots in parking lots and collective areas. Drivers and citizens who are in need of visible parking spots can easily see the blue background against the white handicap symbol for ease of access. These two stencils meet all state and local handicap requirements, and are compliant with the ADA standards of use. Each stencil, including the design and the background, are 39" by 39" square and can easily fit inside the lines of a parking space or in a handicap stall.
Industry professionals recommend the ?" LDPE PRO-Grade material when constructing the stencil, as it is the most commonly found material that offers a durable yet flexible grade to fulfill the needs of most striping projects. This ?" LDPE is an affordable option due to its ability to be reused hundreds or even thousands of times before showing signs of replacement or wear. For something even more durable, try the 0.080 ALU. This indestructible material is made out of a rigid 5052 aluminum that will never warp or weaken no matter how many times you use it. You can use it today and in a decade and it will still provide the same quality. Its cost effectiveness is determined by the fact that it will never need to be replaced or thrown out.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, the 0.030" HIPS is a PVC-constructed material that is perfect for one-time use. It lays flat out of the box, and is ultra thin to provide flexibility while still supporting the rigid use of spray paint. It is the most cost effective option for the stencil, especially in accommodation to the smaller projects. Each material meets Federal, local, and industry standards for use, whether it’s once or thousands of times.
