*Cost per lumen (CPL) = Total installed sign cost⁄(Initial brightness + End of life brightness2) x Estimated life in yearsIt is based on white sheeting at 0.5/-4 (angle most commonly experienced by drivers). Minimum percentage RA retained at end of estimated life is calculated at 50% for EG and 70% for HIP and DG³. Values are according to ASTM D4956 requirements for each sheeting tier.
