Engineer Grade reflective signs offer the basic level of reflectivity in completely dark conditions. Signs with 3M Engineer Grade reflective sheeting last for at least 7 years outdoors.
3M "High Intensity" Grade reflective signs offer up to three times more light reflection and brilliance than engineer grade reflective signs.
Diamond grade reflective address signs offer ten times the reflectivity of Engineer grade signs and come with an outdoor life of at least 12 years. These signs combine high daytime conspicuity with superior nighttime reflectivity. They also have wide-angle reflective performance due to which the text can be read from any angle, even in the dark. Diamond grade signs are the best choice for places with a lot of visual distractions like the busy streets.
High Intensity or Diamond Grade signs are popular because they can be spotted from a greater distance and a wider angle.

Both reflective and solar panel signs offer good nighttime visibility. However, there are many differences in the construction, technology, and working of both the sign types.
Reflective Address Signs use a 3M-brand reflective film mounted on thick non-rusting aluminum. The reflective film on top makes it easier to spot the sign in the dark and enhances visibility by reflecting ambient and direct light (such as headlights) that hits the sign’s surface.
Reflective signs are printed with 3M screen printing or 3M outdoor digital inks designed specifically for outdoor street, traffic, and parking signs.
Solar Panel Address Signs , on the other hand, use direct sunlight to provide 70 hours of light. The sign comes with a battery and can be adjusted to 360º for the perfect street view. Easily adjust the direction and angle of the solar panel for optimum sun exposure. These signs include 52 individual 2.38" / 6cm stick-on numbers, and the sign accommodates addresses up to 5 numbers. Both the sign types offer good nighttime visibility.
Address signs with directional arrows help locate your house with accuracy. Wayfinding signs are ideal for houses sharing a driveway, for mailboxes placed on the opposite side of the street, or if your address is in a multi-unit building. Arrow signs create a good first impression on your visitors, mail delivery services, and emergency responders. Instead of looking lost and confused, these people feel more confident and clear about quickly finding your building or structure.

For 911 House Number Signs, you get background color options, but the font remains reflective white. Brass or bronze numbers are difficult to see. Most county ordinances require numbers that contrast with the background. It is a prime requirement that the 911 numbers be clearly visible when approaching either side of the house, even at night. White letters offer a good contrast against a dark background. It should also be kept in mind that the view of the numbers is not obstructed by shrubs, trees, or decorations, such as flags.
All 911 Address Signs come with pre-drilled holes for easy installation. The placement of holes changes according to the pattern you choose.
