We are one of the few companies in the UK that hold stock of common permanent road signs. This means that most speed limit, roundabout and car park signs are available off the shelf, with a post. This allows you to quickly install new signs, or repair damaged signs that have been run over.
Types of Road Sign Posts
Standard Straight Posts
These are the most common type of post you will see on the road around the UK. They are available in an array of diameters and are the same diameter from the ground up.
Wide Base Posts
These posts have an expanded lower section which allows for an access panel. These are used when lighting or other electronics are required on the post.
Passively Safe Posts
These posts break away when impacted by a car, they have to do so in a safe manner that reduces the risk to passengers and other vehicles.
Sign post Accessories
Depending on the installation you may need any number of signpost accessories these might include the following.
- Post Caps - These are used to prevent water ingress into the top of the post. There are various versions of these available some of which include lighting fixtures.
- Sign Clips & Sign Fixings - These come in different sizes to suit the diameter of the post they are being used on.
- Base Plates - Buried into the ground these secure the post and prevent rotation during and after installation.
- Sign Faces - These could be considered an essential accessory as posts are unhelpful without traffic signs affixed to it. We work with major sign manufactures to offer a wide range of sign faces and styles.
Materials and Finishes
Most locations require standard steel signposts, there are some areas where aluminium posts are used these tend to be powder coated. Aluminium sign posts work just the same as steel posts but are lighter, and more corrosion resistant.
Sign Post Delivery
Sign posts are rather large objects, we ship them nationwide using a selection of couriers and transport partners. If you are ordering a few smaller 76mm posts you should expect delivery by parcel, otherwise, your delivery will likely be fulfilled by pallet delivery.
