Pylon Signs Overview

One of the most effective and eye-catching forms of exterior signage are pylon signs. As the name implies, pylon signs are large freestanding signs mounted to one or several metal poles (or pylons) connected to a concrete base. Typically made of plastic or metal, pylon signs are similar in design and application to monument signs, but considerably taller and larger. Since they are typically larger and more visible than other types of signs, they can help to increase the visibility of a business facility, or campus, especially in areas with a lot of foot or vehicular traffic.

Whether for a restaurant, gas station, retail store, hotel, hospital, or other commercial establishments, Clearway Signs can handle all your pylon sign needs!
