When you drive across the United States, you’ll see many instances of this NORTH auxiliary banner. To aid in navigation, route markers across the country are nearly always paired with a cardinal direction sign. This secondary sign indicates the logical (if not actual) direction the route is headed in. These auxiliary signs are normally installed above the highway marker, although some states occasionally install them below. While directional signs like this are ubiquitous in North America, they are not often used elsewhere. In other parts of the world, directional signage usually just lists the destinations the route is headed toward.
This NORTH banner plate pairs well with any of our wide selection of route markers. Build an entire sign assembly just like the kind you see on the road! Our auxiliary banners are made to the precise size and layout standards found in the 1948 and 1970 editions of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, so you can be confident your display will look just like the real thing.
Our NORTH auxiliary banner is printed on heavy 14-gauge steel. It has the same glossy, non-reflective finish as all of our other signs. That means you can install it alongside them, indoors or outdoors, and always be assured of a perfect match. We offer them in a range of sizes, each matching the widths of our route markers. Convenient mounting holes are included to make it easy as possible! (To see our full line of auxiliary signs, as well as tips on picking the correct banner, see our auxiliary and banner signs page!)
