Permanent Sign Mounting Methods
Unless otherwise stated the majority of our permanent signs are post mounted. This means that the sign face is single-sided, and has at least 2 channels on the rear. These channels allow the sign faces to be used with a variety of post fixings.
Two channels are included as a minimum to stop the sign twisting in heavy winds.
Post clamps are very easy to use allowing for simple self-assembly. They also allow you to have a single sign-on a post, or twin signs back to back depending on your requirements. All our clamps are made from stainless steel unless otherwise specified.
Permanent Sign Types
There are many permanent signs for hundreds of potential situations, but they can be broken down into some fairly straight forward categories. We have outlined some of these below, but more can be found on this document from the gov.uk.
Warning road signs are normally triangular with a red outline, they offer an advanced warning to drivers of upcoming obstacles, harsh turns, or potential distractions. Supplementary plates can be used to accompany these signs for further information, or an indication of the duration of which the warning applies.
Regulatory signs are mostly circular and can be thought about as “signs that give orders”. These instructions could be to “give way”, “stop” or even set a maximum speed limit. One of the most common permanent signs that we sell is the no entry sign, that falls into this category.
Permanent informatory signs are mostly blue in colour and as the name suggests, are there to inform road users. They can provide a countdown to a junction, or inform drivers where they may find parking or a layby.
These signs are generally very specific to an area and can include road names, directions to a business park, or indications of where to find the nearest zoo.
Permanent Signage Reflectivity Grades
By default on our website, any permanent signage will be supply in a grade RA2 reflectivity unless specified otherwise. This allows us to fulfil orders faster and meets or exceeds most peoples requirements.
If you do need a different grade we are still more than happy to help, we have several grades of reflective materials, with a selection of overlays to choose from.
- Class RA1 - Advanced Engineer Grade Prismatic (AEGP), suitable for cycle routes and street names. AEGP returns around 16% of light to a driver.
- Class R2 / RA2 - High-Intensity Prismatic (HIP) The most common grade used on road signs. HIP returns 32% of light to the driver.
- Class R3B - Required where other light sources such as shops and street lighting are present. This material returns 58% of light to the driver.
- Class R3C - Specifically targeted at HGV drivers where the headlamp units are located far lower than the driver. This is the best in class reflectivity and should be used for HGV specific signage, for example, height restriction signage.
