The most common and popular stencil in the striping industry, the 48" STOP stencil is a must-have addition to any large or small collection. Contractors and stripers will find this larger four-piece stencil useful for a variety of different public projects and construction investments. Typically, this stencil is used on roadways, in parking lots, and in construction sites to mark where a driver or cyclist can safely stop. Its large size makes it visible to oncoming traffic, giving drivers a warning about an upcoming stop. It can also be paired with other industry standard stencils such as “NO", “BIKE", “BUS", and “AHEAD" for added direction and clarity. This stencil is made in the USA and offers a warranty that guarantees it to be free of any impediments or defects that could hinder its use in any way.
The measurements and specifications of this stencil comply with industry standards and are designed for use in a parking lot, garage, or pathway. When painted, the stencil measures 76" wide by 48" in height, making it easily viewable by all in the area. The material itself measures 24" wide by 18" high per piece, giving several inches of space on each side to allow for overspray.
There are four material grade options to choose from for the make of your stencil. The .080 ALU is the most durable and most rigid grade, offering a 5052 aluminum that lasts forever. This stencil grade can also withstand thermoplastic striping. The ?" PRO-Grade LDPE is another durable option, adding longevity and affordability. It can last up to 10 years and withstand thousands of reuses before ever showing any signs of wear. This is the most recommended grade by industry professionals. The 1/16" LDPE is the counterpart to the PRO-Grade, but with half the thickness. This adds flexibility for a custom or light-duty project. The thinnest grade available is the .030" HIPS, an ultra flexible material that lays flat for a one-time fit.
