Are A-frames signs weatherproof?
The wood and aluminium used in their construction is designed for long-term outdoor use.
The poster advertising versions have protective plastic covers but they are not 100% waterproof. in an exposed location in driving rain, you may get some moisture under the covers which is why we advise using laminated or PVC weatherproof posters.
Do they fold up?

How stable are they?
They have a large foot which make them and idea street sign and stable in most conditions. We always advise that you keep an eye on the weather in case it is forecast to get windy. If you intend to use your A frame in an exposed location have a look at swinger boards or waterbed pavement signs.
