Exhibit Bases and Frames

Gopher Sign Company manufactures a wide variety of exhibit bases designed to protect and present your signs in an attractive manner. They are designed and constructed with a focus on durability, ease of installation, and professional appearance. Our exhibit bases are constructed with aluminum alloy for optimal corrosion resistance. All welds are ground smooth to optimize the appearance of the exhibit base. Threaded inserts are used wherever possible to make the assembly process quicker and easier. Tamper proof hardware is used wherever possible to protect the signs and bases from theft and vandalism. Finally, each base is powder coated to improve weather resistance and aesthetic appearance. Custom base configurations are available upon request.

In addition to exhibit bases, we offer a variety of mounting methods and configurations including Z-clips, stainless steel threaded studs on the back of the signs, VHB tape, SignFix extruded channels, through-bolts, custom bracketry and more. 

Single Post Upright

Single post upright exhibit bases are designed to accommodate a variety of sign panel shapes and sizes from 3½ to 12 inches wide, and from 3½ to 24 inches high. Mounting can be accomplished with through-bolts or with hidden hardware mounted on the back of the sign panel. Posts are available for either in-ground or pad mount applications.

Double Post Upright

Double post upright exhibit bases are designed to accommodate a variety of sign panel shapes and sizes from 18 to 72 inches wide, and from 12 to 48 inches high. Mounting can be accomplished by placing through-bolts directly through the sign, by using hidden hardware mounted on the back of the sign panel that attaches to the post, or by framing the sign panel in an aluminum extruded frame. Upright double post exhibit bases have an option to enclose the back side of the display with a back plate in those situations where the back side of the panel can serve as a replacement sign if the front side is ever damaged. Posts are available for either in-ground and pad mount applications.

Single Post Pedestal

Single post pedestal exhibit bases are designed to accommodate a variety of sign panel shapes and sizes from 10 to 24 inches wide, and from 10 to 24 inches high. When using pedestal stands, threaded stainless steel studs are embedded into the back of the sign which attach to posts beneath the exhibit base with tamper proof hardware.

Rail Mount exhibit bases are designed to accommodate a variety of panel sizes and shapes from 10 to 96 inches wide and from 10 to 36 inches high. When using rail mount exhibit bases, threaded stainless steel studs are embedded into the back of the sign which attach to support posts beneath the exhibit base with tamper proof hardware. The panels are displayed at a 45-degree angle off the rail. The rail mount exhibit bases are designed to attach to a variety of rail applications ranging from 4 x 4 posts, to flat or round railings.

Kiosk Mount

Kiosk exhibit bases are used commonly by private and municipal organizations in park and recreation, zoos, aquariums, theme parks and more as a means of communicating information to the public. While many of these kiosks are constructed of wood and built on-site by the governing body controlling the recreation area, Gopher Sign company offers a variety of durable, powder coated aluminum kiosk configurations to meet your needs. Whether your kiosk requirements are triangle-shaped, four-sided squares, in-line, or a zig-zag pattern, we offer a kiosk solution that installs quickly and is designed to last.

Monument

Monument exhibit bases typically accommodate larger panel sizes that are designed for viewing from a distance such as a roadway. They tend to be a main attraction when entering a designated area such as a park, city, subdivision, zoo, aquarium, exhibit, arena or similar public area. They typically involve two large upright aluminum posts with a sign spanning the distance between the posts. The sign could either be framed or unframed. Monument signs are often visible from both sides but may be single sided if the landscape does not allow the sign to be viewed from both sides. Posts are available for both in-ground and pad mount applications.
