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.
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 Durapol® 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 manufactured from Durapol 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.

"It’s in our DNA to seek out opportunities where we can provide safer solutions and alternatives through design and engineering and utilising higher performance materials. The Apex and Orbital Chevron units are great examples of advancements in all areas which we hope will provide our customers with more scope and flexibility."

The single installation point allows for quick installation, improving safety for roadside workers and also minimising traffic disruption. The central stem body helps to prevent the growth of grass or shrubs to ensure the sign is not obscured. 500mm installation depth allows for a secure and strong installation.
