Aboards also known as A-boards, sandwich boards, pavement signs can also be described as forecourt signs. Many years ago aboards would have been made from a solid wood construction and would have been painted or stained and varnished to the customers requirements. The aboard would then have been sign written in an oil based paint. Today aboards are more often made from aluminium or mild steel and powdercoated with a stove paint for durability. The graphics are more likely to be vinyl lettering or digitally printed.
One of the most popular versions of the pavement sign is the swinging pavement sign which has a solid plastic/rubber base with a metal frame and a panel that hangs from two hinges located within the top of the frame. The panel would be made from a thin sheet of 1.5mm aluminium with rounded corners for safety. The most common size of pavement sign panel is 500mm x 700mm.
The traditional aboard has two panels hinged at the top with four legs to the sign standing like a tent with no ends, a bracket stops the two panels from opening up too much. Aboards can have graphics applied or they can be supplied with snapframes which allow for poster to be fitted. The posters are made of paper.
Aboards are also made with a chalk black board for use with pubs and restaurants, chalk aboards are made in wood and are stained instead of painted.
Forecourt signs are supplied to the petrol stations and car showrooms as well as large retail outlets. Forecourt signs are larger than aboards and are usually designed to hold large posters. The forecourt sign is made of metal with a heavy weight base to stop them falling over in the wind
