APPENDIX C Curbside--Basic Mounting Types The basic mounting types used within curbside/ground transportation areas are overhead sus- pended, ceiling mount, flag mount, wall mount, post mount, and floor mount. The following lists the types of general sign mounting that will be found throughout the curb- side areas: A. Overhead Suspended--Signs that are suspended from the ceiling using a cable or break-away fastening system B. Soffit Mount--Signs that are located on an architectural soffit or wall, and mounted with the back of the sign to the soffit or wall using a mechanical fastening system C. Canopy Mount--Signs that are either suspended or flush to the canopy and mounted with the top of the sign to the canopy using a mechanical fastening system D. Flag Mount--Signs that are mounted perpendicular to the attachment surface, usually on a wall and/or soffit, and attached using a mechanical fastening system E. Post Mount--Signs that are mounted directly to a ground mounted single or double post structure using a mechanical fastening system F. Freestanding--Signs that have their bases mounted directly to the ground/finished floor using a mechanical fastening system Mounting Restrictions Minimum clearance heights for overhead vehicular signs are dictated by overall architectural limitations and must be coordinated with posted clearance information provided in advance of the curbside. 215
