COSA panel material & fabricator recommendations

Posted

I am looking for recommendations for fabricators of high-quality outdoor interpretive panels and trailhead maps. In the past, we have used Rhino® high pressure laminate panels fabricated by a Denver-based company that shut down recently and the new fabricator of the Rhino panels is based in Pennsylvania, which creates extra shipping costs. Also, as much as the Rhino panels are great because they are bright, colorful and graffiti-resistant, they don’t seem to hold up in our dry, sun-baked high-altitude environment; almost every Rhino panel we have in our inventory has separated and “sloughed” off. I was wondering if anyone uses a Denver-based (preferred) or Colorado-based panel fabricator and what panel material have you used that you can recommend? Thanks for any suggestions!
