Every once and a while there is an overwhelming need to hang items outdoors. The Large Zig-Zag Hinged Message Center is a large, high-quality piece that is designed to handle the elements. The uses are as endless as the reasons people need them. A school can use one to show top student work to the world at large. A tourist area might post maps, upcoming events, and important notices where the papers are safe from multiple uses. A park can further its community education program by creating a visually stimulating display that teaches about the outdoors. Regardless of how it is used, its sturdy, environmentally-friendly recycled plastic frame will be up to the task. The center itself comes as an in-ground mount, but with the simple addition of the Surface Post Mount, it can be mounted on harder surfaces such as concrete.
