Foam Core Brings Cantilever Sign Design to Life

Prefabricated_Monument_Sign_Foam_Core_Arboretum_Oaks_TexasAs Signs West (Austin, TX) was designing the Arboretum Oaks Apartment Homes signage, it knew the only way to bring the design to life was by using Signs By Benchmark expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam core.

“Since it had a large cantilever, any other material would have been close to impossible to fabricate,” said West Ashley of Signs West.


The flexibility of foam core signage is on full display in the 144” x 72” x 18” sign that features custom shapes and foam lettering, all encapsulated in our signature polyurea hard coat to provide the durability and longevity expected by the end customer.

“The clients were out [during installation] taking pictures of the sign and talking about how they had never seen anything like it before. The products from Signs By Benchmark are outstanding and high quality,” said Ashley.
