Traffic signs, traffic sign boards, warning signs are exposed to the sun's steep rays 24 hours a day, cold at minus degrees and mechanical damage caused by people. Nevertheless, road safety and traffic must be produced from robust, reliable materials to meet all the harsh effects required for continuous operation.
Use of GRP as Warning Boards
Since GRP plates were designed to tackle the toughest environmental factors, the use of a lot of the bases quickly became widespread.
None of the products designed and used in the industrial revolution were as common as GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastics). And yet, no other industrial product, which is very cheaply costly in high quantities, is not as resistant to physical, chemical, mechanical, or even biological environmental effects as it is.
It is the greatest proof that the GRP sheets will be the product of the future as much as it is today, because it is very light, much more durable and very cost-effective than the products it is based on, its structure can be re-edited with infinite possibilities as needed,
Another challenging area that requires resistance to environmental factors is the roads. The warning signs used on the road are constantly and simultaneously exposed to almost all known corrosive, abrasive environmental effects as well as road signs, traffic signs.
It is not surprising that a product that is champion of resistance to environmental factors such as GRP is used in traffic and roads.
GRP material is preferred due to many reasons in the production of sign boards.
Even if it is very difficult mechanically, the breaking resistance is also very high. If it is produced correctly, it will preserve this property like the first day for many years.
Traffic signs are very high and very cold to resist the heat. GRP is very resistant to low and high temperature. It is the most successful product to resist the effects of all kinds of erosion brought by the climate like rain, hail, snow.
Traffic sign plates should be resistant to corrosion and corrosion. Particularly, the warning signs used on the shore side should be more resistant to corrosion and corrosion as compared with salt and wind.
Traffic signs are constantly being exposed to it as well as a chemical effect such as exhaust gas. This chemical effect, combined with other effects, can render metal traffic signs unusable.
To ensure road safety, sometimes a large number of signs at long distances should be used frequently on road edges. This means that the workers have many signs, long haulage, lifting and fitting. GRP panel is light, easy to move. It requires less transportation and labor than the same number of metal plates.
If you prefer metal plates for traffic signs (aluminum, galvanized steel sheet, etc.) this makes them a target against being stolen. The thieves can steal, melt and resell these metal signs, which they acquire intensely and without effort.
GRP panels is not the first choice of thieves in this direction. It is also resistant to a kind of stolen.
And besides, it is possible to produce reflector coating of any desired color on GRP plates as well as any desired color.
Traffic signs have a vital importance in terms of road safety and direction. For many years it should function as the first day.
GRP panels are the most suitable solution for traffic and roadway signs with all its structural features.
