A common industry standard, the 12" THRU stencil is a must-have addition to any serious contractor’s collections. Beginner and professional stripers alike can use this stencil for a variety of common and heavy-duty projects. Typically, this stencil is used to mark drive through lanes around restaurants or indicate to drivers that a road does or doesn’t continue through. It can be used alone or combined with other industry stencils such as “DRIVE", “ONLY", and “AHEAD" to give further direction. This stencil is made in the USA and comes with a factory warranty that guarantees it to be delivered without any impediments or defects.
The specifications and measurements of this stencil comply with industry standards and are designed for use in a parking lot. When painted, the stencil measures 38" in width and 12" in height, with a stroke width of 2" for added readability. The material itself measures 44" wide by 1*" high, giving several inches of space on all sides to allow for overspray.
There are four different material grade options to choose from for the make of this stencil. The thickest material available is the .080 ALU, a rigid 5052 aluminum that lasts forever. This is best for heavy-duty projects and thermoplastic extruding. The next thickest material grade is the ?" LDPE, which is named PRO-Grade due to its longevity, durability, and affordability. It is recommended by most as the industry standard, and can last several long years. For something thinner, consider the 1/16" LDPE. This is the counterpart to the PRO-Grade, but with half the thickness. It is good for light-duty projects. The thinnest material available is the .030" HIPS, a standard PVC material that offers ultra flexibility for a custom fit.
