Reflective Materials

All of our reflective signs are available in both post and wall mounting versions and all can be supplied with Extra-Tough Anti-Graffiti Over Laminate

Reflectivity - Class RA1 v Class RA2

All signs we manufacture are available in two reflectivity options, Class RA1 and Class RA2. The classes RA1 and RA2 relate to the photometric properties of the sign. These retroreflective materials are equivalent to the BS EN 12899:1:2007 standard.

Class RA1

This is the standard option providing a high level of performance for everyday use. This would have previously been the Class 2 material to BS873 (which has now been replaced by BS EN 12899-1:2007) and would be used for signs where reflective performance is not as important as Class RA2.

Class RA2

Ideal for high risk areas, Class RA2 is an engineering grade that provides at least 3 times the photometric properties of Class RA1 signs. This is the same as Class 1 in BS873.

Class RA1 Rigid Plastic

RA1 Rigid Plastic Sign

This practical material is a great cost effective solution when a reflective sign is needed. It comprises a Class RA1 reflective face pressure applied on 3mm thick rigid plastic backing. It has low re-use value which will reduce the risk of theft and is also fully recyclable.

 

Class RA1 Aluminium

RA1 Aluminium Sign

Our most popular range due to the more durable material which will not easily rust or rot. Made from a pressure applied Class RA1 reflective face on 3mm anodised aluminium plate backing.

 

Class RA2 Aluminium

RA2 Aluminium Sign

3mm aluminium plate backing with Class RA2 reflective face. Choose this material when you need an extra robust sign and where visibility is a priority. The Class RA2 face offers 3 times more retroreflectivity for added peace of mind.

 

Class RA1 Aluminium Extra Tough

RA1 Aluminium Extra Tough Sign

3mm aluminium plate backing with Class RA1 reflective face and protective over laminate, this material has prolonged life expectancy and reduced weathering over time. The over laminate layer offers great durability providing the sign face with anti-graffiti protection which means it can be easily cleaned.
