Telespar Sign Support

Report Number(s): TR No. 690900-XSD4-9

Description: The system consists of a 2-inch x 14 gauge perforated square steel tube (PSST) support post inserted 8 inches into a 2¼-inch x 12 gauge PSST anchor. Both the PSST support and anchor had 7 /16inch diameter pre-punched holes spaced on one inch centers along the length of all four sides. The PSST support is secured to the PSST anchor using a 5/16-inch diameter corner bolt and nut. The PSST anchor tube was 30 inches long and embedded in soil such that it protruded 2 inches above grade. Two ¾-inch diameter aluminum drive rivets secured a 12-inch x 18-inch x 0.080-inch thick aluminum sign panel to the PSST support post at a mounting height of 7 ft above grade to the bottom of the sign panel. The top of the PSST support post was flush with the top of the sign panel. The PSST support and anchor are fabricated from ASTM A 1011 steel and are galvanized in accordance with ASTM A653.
