Bath and North East Somerset Council chose to install new chevrons using NAL Retention Sockets alongside the recently developed 468 chevron by Sign Post Solutions.
The chevrons utilise SPS SignStr8 aluminium posts in 80mm and 93mm diameter Retention Sockets.
All the installations took place on high speed roads where vehicular collisions to signs are a common occurrence.
The requirement of the client was to provide a passively safe system whereby impacted signs could be easily and quickly replaced, without the need for any expensive and disruptive civils reinstatement works.
The NAL Retention Socket allows damaged posts to be removed and replaced within minutes ensuring maintenance teams and traffic management are on the highway for a minimum amount of time.
