I was checking where to place portable signs that are set in concrete bases. I think that may fit as a user created number after 10 14 53 Traffic Signage...

then I noticed these:
10 14 26 Post and Panel/Pylon Signage
and 10 14 66 Floating Signage
Can anyone describe what they would be used for?

10 14 53 is a MasterFormat Section

Post and panel, and pylon signs are those used a major identification signs for businesses-- often gaudy, and eye-catching, logos, etc.

Floating sign have to be something "riding the waves or ripples" in a water mass-- at boat docks, marinas, regattas, etc.

Or "Floating Signage" is something like the Goodyear Blimp or advertising balloons.

Actually my understanding of "floating signage" is signage that appears to as the title says, float. Typically this would be in the form of a panel that is attached to a wall with stand-offs such that it appears to "float" in front of the wall surface. I have also seen the term in reference to signage suspended by hangers like sometimes seen in galleries or museums. Some remote hint they might also include something like hanging "banners". See the following links for examples.
