The 6" AHEAD stencil is a versatile and useful stencil that any beginner or professional striper can add to their arsenal. It can be combined with other symbol or word stencils for a variety of industrial and public road projects. Drivers, pedestrians, and passersby will be able to easily read the painted words on any pavement or wall. It is typically used in a bike lane or a path to give clear direction to bikers that comply with traffic laws. The stencil comes in a single piece for easy application and use.
The stencil has been CNC cut to meet the standard specifications and ensure that each stencil is the same. When painted, the AHEAD design will measure 28" wide by 6" high, with a 1" stroke on each letter’s symbol for symmetrical accuracy. The material stretches to 34" wide by 12" high, allowing plenty of offset space for overspray. The material comes with a factory direct warranty that guarantees that it will be free from any defect or blemish that could impede its full use.
For a heavy duty project, invest in the ?" LDPE PRO-Grade material. This is the industry standard grade, and the most common material used for these types of stencils. Professionals prefer this material for its affordability and reuse ability. It is very durable, with a thickness that allows it to lay flat while still withstanding up to 3000psi of spray painting power. With proper care, it can last for up to a decade and be reused thousands and thousands of times before it needs replacement. If you are looking to use preformed thermoplastic, or if you want something that will last virtually forever, the .080 ALU is a cost effective option. It is made of a rigid 5052 aluminum that will be just as durable in 15 years as it is today.
