Introducing The Rib-Bak® U-Channel Post

Made of tough new billet steel, NUCOR’s RIB-BAK® is the strongest U-channel post available, especially in the crucial load bearing points, with over 25% greater tensile strength than our competitor’s rail steel. The RIB-BAK® design withstands higher wind loads and saves money by supporting a lot more sign per post.

These posts are easy to install. A trained crew, even a single person, can complete an installation in just minutes. No post hole digging is required. In addition, there’s no drilling necessary because RIB-BAK© comes with 3/8″ holes the length of the post on one-inch centers.

Powder Coating at the price of paint.

AT EFA we offer you the superior rust-resistant protection, durability and appearance of powder coating—at the price of paint. Called Powder-Shell™, it’s available for all sizes of RIB-BAK® in green, black, yellow, white, orange and brown (other colors by request). For the ultimate protection against the elements, RIB-BAK® posts are also available in hot-dipped galvanized.

Crash Tested and Approved

RIB-BAK® U-channel signposts and breakaway systems are accepted by the FHWA (Federal Highway Administration) for small sign support applications, and also meet the NCHRP 350 criteria for occupant impact velocity.

Round Posts

The top choice of many communities because of their aesthetic appearance. Round Posts offer a high degree of safety with no sharp angles. Round posts also have the best shape for breakaway systems because energy is equally dispersed in all directions.
