The United States Sign Council Foundation has announced the launch of a study entitled “The Effect of Mounting Height on On-Premise Sign Visibility and Traffic Safety.” The Foundation has retained the services of Philip Garvey of Penn State University to complete the research, expected by Fall 2018.
In 2003, USSC produced a study that showed that 6-foot-tall signs were difficult to see. This study is designed to determine what height is necessary for appropriate visibility. The 2018 USSCF new study will support the establishment of USSC Foundation On-Premise Guideline Standards for Sign Mounting Height Standards.
