The benefits of investing in speed signs from HIVIS
At HIVIS, we understand the importance of having quality speed signs on work sites, roads and other public areas. Whether you’re working on a busy road or ensuring on-site vehicles are following the speed limit, our road speed signs offer a range of features that contribute to their effectiveness:
- Customisation: We offer custom size, wording, and colour options for our speed limit signs. This flexibility ensures that signs can be tailored to specific road conditions, environments, and regulatory requirements.
- Clear Communication: Their primary purpose is to communicate speed limits to ensure driver safety clearly. This is achieved using distinct, easy-to-read numerals and colours that stand out against the background.
- Reflective Materials: HIVIS speed signs are made with reflective materials classified as Class 400 or Class 1100. These materials enhance visibility, especially at night or in low-light conditions, by reflecting light from vehicle headlights back to the driver, making the sign more noticeable.
- LED Options: Some speed signs incorporate LED technology. LED signs are highly visible and energy-efficient, offering enhanced visibility in various weather conditions and times of day. They are particularly useful in areas where traditional signs might be less visible, such as in sharp bends, busy intersections, or areas with frequent fog or heavy rain.
Each of these features contributes to the overall effectiveness of speed signs in managing traffic and promoting road safety.
