CLASS 1 or 2 REFLECTIVE SIGNS?
We would like to explain to you the differences between class 1 and class 2 reflective on signage. There is a clear visual difference when you are looking at these 2 types.
Class 1 reflective is the higher grade of reflectivity, and it is identifiable by its honeycomb pattern. Class 1 reflective is used where high visibility is required for 24 hours of the day. It is a premium grade reflective, that reflects light from wide angles. All signs used on a public road must be Class 1 to comply. This would include all street signs, speed limit signs and roadwork signage to name a few.
There has been recent changes to the national code of practice for rear marking plates for all vehicles over 12 tonnes GVM and all trailers over 10 tonnes GTM. This states that rear marking plates for Trucks are now to be made from Class 1 Reflective. The phase out period finishes on 31st December 2020. Make sure you comply.
Uniform Safety Signs has made these appropriate changes, so that we supply you with only quality, compliant signage.
Class 2 Reflective Signs are ideal for non-critical, off-road situations that require high visibility in poor light conditions. These situations would include work premise signage, carparks, shopping centres etc.
