An industry alternative to the standard 39" handicap stencil is the 39" Legacy handicap stencil, which is a factory direct product that gives stripers an additional option for any large or small handicap project needs. The alternative design is 39" in height and 34" in width, allowing for a slightly more rectangular shape that fits well inside of an approved parking space or handicap stall. While different, the Legacy handicap stencil still meets all ADA requirements and fits with most state and local handicap regulations.
The Legacy handicap stencil is guaranteed to be free of defects, allowing for simple use and quality factory products that will complete any project with ease. Stripers can use the Legacy stencil to assist them with parking lots, common areas and handicapped access pathways. By using a pavement approved paint, you can ensure that the design is vibrant against the pavement and noticeable by all drivers and pedestrians who are looking for the handicapped areas.
There are four grade materials to choose from when deciding what the stencil will be made out of. Each selection provides durability and affordability, while giving a range of reuse potential. For a big project that spans hundreds of reuses or many years, the .080" ALU or the ?" LDPE PRO-Grade are the best options. They are durable and thick, and will stay put as they lay flat. They can withstand up to 3000psi of spray painting power, guaranteeing that the job will get done right every time. Smaller projects can invest in the 1/16" LDPE or the 0.030" HIPS material for something on the lighter side. These two materials are flexible and recommended by professionals for one-time use or sparing application. If you don’t plan on using the stencil every day, these two can be the more affordable option. Each stencil grade meets industry requirements and provides flexibility to any project.
