The 8" STOP stencil is one of the most commonly used stencils in the industry, as it offers flexibility and versatility for almost any roadway job. It is a must-have addition to any large or small collection. Contractors and stripers will find this stencil useful for a variety of different public projects. Typically, this stencil is used on bike paths, walkways, exits, and construction sites to mark where a pedestrian or cyclist can safely stop. It also is visible to onlookers, giving pedestrians warning about an upcoming stop. It can also be paired with other industry standard stencils such as “BIKE", “BUS", and “AHEAD" for added direction. 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 or pedestrian pathway. When painted, the stencil measures 26" wide by 8" in height. The material itself measures 32" wide by 14" high, giving several inches of space on each side to allow for overspray.
There are four material grade options available for the make of your stencil. The most durable grade is the .080 ALU, which is a rigid 5052 aluminum that lasts forever. This indestructible material can be used for any heavy job, and is also useful for preformed thermoplastic striping. The next thickest material is the ?" PRO-Grade LDPE, which is an industry standard. This commonly used material is recommended by professionals as it offers years of durability and thousands of reuses without showing signs of wear or tear. If you’re invested in a light-duty or custom job, the 1/16" LDPE is an affordable option. This grade is flexible without sacrificing durability, and can last a long time when used sparingly. The .030" HIPS is ultra thin, and adds more flexibility for a custom fit.
