The 12" handicap stencil is a smaller handicap stencil that adds usefulness and versatility to any professional contractor's collection. It is compliant with ADA standards and is typically made for use on ramps and on signage to indicate handicapped friendly zones. Its small size allows it to be used in areas where pedestrians and drivers can get an up-close view of the signs. It is often painted on small routes, pathways, ramps, temporary parking spaces, and cardboard signs. While it is too small to fit in a parking space, it is more versatile than a larger stencil as it can be painted anywhere and is great to use for backup situations. This stencil is manufactured in the USA and offers a warranty that guarantees that it will be delivered without any impediments that could hinder its use.
There are four material grade options available for the make of your stencil. For something ultra durable, invest in the .080 ALU. This indestructible aluminum will last forever and can withstand thermoplastic extruding. For average or large projects, the ?" PRO-Grade LDPE is the standard. It allows for thousands of uses over several years without showing signs of wear. The 1/16" LDPE is the counterpart to the PRO-Grade, but with half the thickness. It is best used for light-duty projects. The .030" is the thinnest grade available, offering flexibility and a custom fit for one-time uses.
The measurements and specifications of this single stencil are compliant with industry standards and are designed for use in small spaces. When printed, the stencil measures 11" wide by 12" high for a compact and easy to read sign. The material itself measures 16" wide by 16" high, giving several inches of space on all sides to allow for overspray. The handicap symbol does not come with a background, but allows for added contrast and vibrancy against any type of pavement or sign.
