Glasdon Expand Chevron Range

Introducing the new Apex™ Chevron Sign, for marking bends where verge space is limited, and Orbital™ Chevron Sign, the innovative all-in-one Chevron with integral energy efficient illuminated 606 arrow for roundabouts.

Orbital and Apex Side by Side

The new Apex Chevron Sign, and Orbital Chevron Sign both offer advancements in design and technology to the benefit of all road users and highways authorities.

Manufactured from a choice of Durapol® or Impactapol® material the Apex Chevron Sign, with fixed 600mm chevron board, would be installed as one complete unit to highlight the verge hazard and sharp change in direction; or to replace traditional metal posts and boards which can in themselves cause injury or damage on impact and require regular replacement.

Alternatively, to improve the visibility of low-approach-speed roundabouts on highways with speeds less than 50mph, the new Orbital Chevron Sign with 400mm chevron sign board and illuminated integral 606 sign face offers a unique all-in-one solution that’s ready to install. Also available in a choice of Durapol or Impactapol material, the Orbital Chevron Sign features additional dedicated space for advertising or messaging.

Both models offer a choice of base installations which includes a LockFast™ Socket option for easy install, removal and replacement. The LockFast Socket works to eliminate costly reinstatements following the possibility of any impact damage.
