Trichord & Custom Overhead Structures
Trichord structures have been used in areas & roadways where large scale directional signage is needed for wide highway spans where a cantilever structure would not suffice.
AMG metals fabricates a full welded assembly, and a flat face assembly with bolted diagonals. This can save costs in projects to reduce freight costs by stacking structures. Structures are galvanized, steel, and can be coated if specified. When smaller directional signs are needed, an overhead monotube structure may be utilized. Consisting of 4 shafts bolted together, this structure offers an economic benefit, while offering an easy directional solution. Fully galvanized steel, this structure can be painted as well. All sign brackets are welded on, or can be offered separate as clamp on items for adjustment of sign locations.Contact Us to Start Your Quote

VMS/CMS Structures (Aluminum & Steel)
Many Transportation governments have started to deliver safety messages, road delays and other warnings to drivers by using variable message signage. AMG can provide virtually unlimited span, and can co-ordinate with the sign supplier to assure a solution that will fit your needs.
Variable/Changeable Message Structures (CMS/VMS) incorporate 3 elements to serve as an excellent solution for ease of installation, economy, and excellent span widths. With steel galvanized legs, and an aluminum support frame made in 3 pieces, the Sign Panel is skinned around a steel fabricated mid structured , then assembled with the 2 ends, and lifted onto the legs on site. With full ladder & platform access, it allows for maintenance as required, and cleaning. We can provide the sign boards as well, or customer supplied.Contact Us To Start Your Quote
