Stop Signs UK

We supply the types of stop signs that are widely used and recognised throughout the UK on both public and private roads and traffic routes. When it comes to stop signs, Highway Code rules specify a range of different signs and symbols, which may mean slightly different things. Our UK stop signs are Highway Code approved and include widely recognised symbols such as children crossing signs or explanatory text such as works signs. UK road users should be very familiar with the rules of stop signs as laid out by the stop sign Highway Code, so it is important that you use official, approved stop signs in UK businesses and car parks.

Do I Need Stop Signs For My Business?

If you are responsible for a business car park; a loading, delivery or parking area; or any private land with any kind of traffic route across it, then you may well need stop signs, along with various other traffic and parking signs, to ensure that users follow the rules. This is essential for the convenience and safety of staff, customers and outside contractors such as delivery drivers. Stop signs are also commonly used on temporary remote worksites such as construction sites, road works areas or any site where traffic may need to be guided around an area where work is in progress.

You may also need stop signs in specific circumstances – for instance, if there is a temporary obstruction that limits traffic to one lane and requires drivers to be instructed when to stop and go, or if you have a pedestrian crossing to monitor, which may require manual signalling at times. A lollipop-style sign, for example, can be vital if you run any kind of childcare facility, or regularly have groups of children traversing your parking area or other traffic routes around your business. Stop signs of various kinds are quite affordable, and most are hard-wearing and very low maintenance, so they are invariably worth investing in.

What Do I Need to Know About UK Stop Signs?

If you own a business in the UK, stop signs may be something you need to know about, because your staff or customer car park may be your responsibility. If your car park occupies land that is owned, leased or rented by you or your business, then the car park is on private land and the parking is managed using the laws of contract or trespass. A private car park may be managed by the person who owns, rents or leases it, or sometimes by a private parking company on behalf of the landowner if that is an arrangement that works for all concerned.

Private parking operators who are members of an Accredited Trade Association (ATA) need to follow a Code of Practice, which outlines the guidelines regarding all private parking signs, including stop signs. These guidelines cover the size, placement and content of your parking signs. The British Parking Association provides further details regarding the responsibilities of business owners who own or manage private car parks. The Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2016 also contain information about the use of traffic signs within private car parks or parking areas.

Displaying Stop Signs On Business Premises

It is important that stop signs are clearly displayed and, in the case of permanent signs, securely fixed in place. Alongside the signs themselves, we also supply a range of fixings that can be used to attach signs to walls, fences, glass and other surfaces. Posts are often the simplest way to mount a sign in an open area. Stop sign posts are strong enough to survive the kind of minor bumps that occur in car parks from time to time, and they are generally very easy to fit.

If you need a short-term solution, because of a temporary obstruction, work area or other danger on your premises, you may want to consider the option of temporarily attaching signs to specially designed traffic cones. Just remember that raised signs are much easier to spot from a distance, and permanent signs should be installed in the most visible place possible to be effective. On this note, check your stop signs and any other car park signs regularly to make sure that they are not becoming obscured by foliage, as well as to make sure that they have not been damaged or defaced.

Can I Make My Own Stop Sign?

Sometimes, you might want a specific type of stop sign. At times, we get asked for stop signs with hand symbols, for example, or with specific text or images. Here at Seton, we do supply customised stop signs, which give you a certain amount of flexibility, and the option to add your own text, perhaps to issue an instruction that is highly specific to conditions on your business premises or circumstances in your parking area.

What Are the Best UK Stop Signs for My Business?

Depending on your circumstances, you may need one or several stop signs, temporary, permanent, or handheld. You may also need stop signs in a certain type of material, depending on how strong and hard-wearing you need your signs to be. Here at Seton, we provide a range of stop signs and other traffic and car park signs. Here are a few of our more popular and versatile options:
