Large Truck Message Signs


Download Brochure

Truck-Mount Message Signs for large trucks feature a full matrix of LEDs for displaying highly legible messages. They have large four-LED pixels and greater pixel height for multi‑line messages with large fonts. Available in two sizes up to eight feet wide, these signs include an integral, electrically operated, 90-degree tilt-frame. The enhanced touchscreen controller provides most common functions right on the home screen, including tilt control.

Wanco’s Large-Truck Message Signs feature a higher density of LEDs for outstanding performance and legibility. Common applications include road striping convoys, pothole repairs, snow removal, road sweeping and crash cushion (TMA) trucks.

These signs feature large pixels with four LEDs per pixel, and greater pixel height for multi‑line messages with large fonts. Two sign sizes are available — 4×8 feet and 4×6½ feet. Their full-matrix displays can present messages as text, graphics or a combination of both. A choice of 12 installed fonts provides flexibility.

For ease of use, Wanco’s full‑color touchscreen controller is redesigned for truck‑mount applications. Most common functions are available directly from the home screen, which also provides one-touch activation of customizable high-priority messages. The controller is installed inside the cab for easy access.

An integrated tilt-frame raises and lowers the sign 90 degrees using dual electric actuators. The tilt-frame is operated from the controller, and the touchscreen display indicates the sign position in real time — up, down or in motion. An optional truck‑bed mounting frame raises the sign 52 inches off the bed.
