Traffic Flow Plates For One Way Traffic
Traffic Flow plates
Traffic flow plates are an effective method of keeping traffic flowing in the correct direction. They can be used to prevent cars or other vehicles driving in the exit of a car park. There are two main grades of flow plates available, 'HGV' for heavy goods vehicles and “Standard” which is suitable for cars and small vans.
The flow plates are normally used to ensure that no traffic enters through the exit lane. This can improve security, safety and ensure that a constant traffic flow is maintained.
Proper Signage Is Essential When Using Flow Plates
When installing and positioning traffic flow plates it is essential that they are well signposted. Proper signage is required to ensure that all drivers approaching the ramps have “fair warning” of the ramps. No entry signs should also be used on the rear of the ramps to ensure no one drives at the ramps from the wrong direction.
Putting Them In The Right Place
To get the best lifespan from your one-way flow plates it is important that they are installed in the correct location. They should always be installed on straight sections of road where vehicles are not turning.
It is also recommended that they are used in conjunction with speed ramps to ensure that vehicles are slowed to the correct speed before going over the ramp. Doing this reduces any risk of damage to the flow plates but also reduces any risk to a vehicle.
Our flow plates are surface mount unless otherwise specified. This makes installation very easy. Installation is as simple as measuring and marking out their positioning, drilling the fixing holes then bolting down the plates.
