Adolph Thomae, Jr. County Park Educational Kiosk and Signs

Summary

The existing signs at the boat ramp replaced with new signs and will be mounted to a kiosk instead of being mounted on low profile stands; this will protect the signs from direct exposure to the sun thus extending the life. The new interpretive signs will be made of porcelain enamel. Porcelain enamel is made with a mixture of mineral content glass and inorganic pigments fused to a steel substrate at a temperature exceeding 1400 degrees Fahrenheit. This process produces the most visually striking and durable signage material available. The expected life of these signs is approximately 25 years.
