Sign Sheeting Demonstration

Comparison and contrast of ASTM Type VII , ASTM Type VIII, and ASTM Type IX sheeting. Current specification requires Class D Sheeting, which encompasses ASTM Types VII, VIII and IX sheetings. The ASTM Type VIII and Type IX sheetings are promoted as having a wider retroreflective angularity which enables signs to be more visible and conspicuous, as well as free of blotchy appearance typical of ASTM Type VII Sheeting. The Sign Sheeting Demonstration will compare sheetings by having one half one type of sheeting and the other half with another type of sheeting. Sign sheeting will be displayed on an interstate highway project in Albany, New York area with thanks to Region One Construction Office. Sign companies are providing sign panels, sheeting, borders and characters. NYSDOT Region One's Project Contractor will install signs.
