Sign gantry or gantry crane inspections are critical to preventing structural failure, and ensuring the gantry is in optimal condition and compliance with industry regulations.
This page will discuss:
A sign gantry inspection checklist ensures that the structure is in good condition, readable by motorists, and in compliance with regulations. The checklist should instruct the inspector to check the gantry beams, columns, and footings, as well as the geometry of the structure.
Civil engineers and other transportation professionals can use this sign gantry structural inspection checklist to identify structural issues that need to be addressed to prevent injury to motorists or pedestrians and to ensure compliance with local and federal standards of visibility and safety.
Periodic sign gantry inspections are necessary to ensure human safety, compliance with transportation industry standards, and prevent failures of structural components. Instead of using a paper checklist, a mobile checklist app enables users to conduct sign gantry inspections quickly and efficiently, attach photos, videos, and other multimedia to the inspection report, and ensure swift action when maintenance is needed or new signs need to be installed. All records are automatically geotagged so maintenance crews can quickly find the structure that needs work, and managers can see in real time when and where work is completed.
