Passive Safety Posts For Road Signs & Lighting
Passive Safety Posts For Signs & Lighting
As the name suggests this range of sign support posts are passively safe. This means that in the event an out of control vehicle impacts the post, it will give way in such a way that the risk of injury to the occupants of the vehicle is massively reduced.
Passively safe sign posts come in a huge variety of designs and from a range of different manufacturers, each has its pros and cons. One thing they do all have in common though is that they have all been thoroughly crash-tested to BS EN 12767 standards and carry a CE mark, they also can all have signs mounted on them.
These passively safe posts save lives during accidents as they do not stop vehicles dead like old fashioned traditional posts. For this reason, they also do not need crash barriers placed in front of them. This reduces installation costs considerably.
Where are Passively Safe Posts Used?
These specialist sign supports are mostly seen on higher speed roads where quickly reducing an out of control vehicle to an immediate stop could cause significant injury.
These posts are most commonly seen on motorways, dual carriageways and faster A roads, but they can be installed wherever they would be beneficial for safety.
When choosing a passive safety post system you will need to ensure that the post chosen is suitable for the size of sign that is being fitted, and the speed of the road. If you need assistance with this we are able to help.
