Re: What Design Standard For Signs?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
In most States, you can check with the local jurisdiction for their
requirements.  Lacking input from them, I would design for ASCE 7 wind
loads, ACI 318 for concrete members, and AISC LRFD for steel members.

This is a question regarding commercial signage and sign supports.

Are these governed by building code(s)? It occurs to me that BUILDING codes
are just that: Codes that govern the construction of BUILDINGS, which of
course a sign is not.

Highway signage is governed (typically) by AASHTO's sign standard, but I
don't see how this would apply for a commercial sign which may or may not
be
close to a roadway, and is most likely on private property.

Anyone have a clue?
