Roll Up Traffic Signs and Stands are a Sign of Spring
The return of warmer weather brings with it a proliferation of road building and repair projects, with construction crews and equipment visible along the country’s local streets and highways.
As the number of workers on roads and highways increases, the risk of crashes and fatalities also increases. The risks apply equally to drivers, passengers, bicyclists and pedestrians. It’s no surprise that a host of organizations, including the Federal Highway Administration, state Departments of Transportation and the American Road and Transportation Builders Association, sponsor National Work Zone Awareness Week in early April each year.
Alerting motorists and pedestrians of roadwork, traffic detours, construction zones or other potentially hazardous conditions is critical this time of year. Traffic signs are a vital tool for preventing accidents and injury, as well as ensuring the safety of the crews working in these potentially dangerous environments.
Time to Pop Up the Portable Temporary Road Signs
Construction traffic signs typically warn drivers and those on foot to proceed with caution in the vicinity of a project site, or direct pedestrians and traffic away from dangerous areas and situations that could put their safety at risk. These signs also ensure that traffic is controlled when workers are active in the area. However, due to the difficulty of transporting, installing and storing the equipment, setting up and removing traffic safety signs is not always an easy task.
Reflective roll-up traffic signs offer the perfect solution for any situation where functionality and visibility are vital. Roll-up traffic signs resemble traditional signs, but they are made from lighter materials with the durability to withstand extreme weather conditions.
For spring construction or repair projects where temporary traffic control is a must, simply pop up these portable, flexible and easy to transport road signs and roll them back up when the work is completed. Because they take up less room than traditional traffic signs or construction markers, crews can set up more portable signs in a given location. They are ideal for projects such as road maintenance because they roll into a compact size and can be transported using smaller trucks or commercial vehicles.
Reflective Roll-Up Signs Provide Visibility and Durability
Traffic Safety Direct offers a broad range of standard reflective roll-up traffic signs, ranging from "Detour Ahead" and "Be Prepared to Stop" to customized create-your-own signs to meet specific needs. All of our signs are made of the highest quality materials to provide maximum performance and safety for motorists, pedestrians and workers.
Our premium roll-up reflective signs are manufactured using 3M™ Series RS30 material designed to provide higher nighttime sign brightness than mesh or non-reflective vinyl signs. All roll-up signs come in industry standard 36” and 48” sizes and are MUTCD compliant. Available in non-reflective or hi-intensity grade, they are fade and UV resistant for extended outdoor life.
Roll-Up Signs Pair Perfectly with Portable Sign Stands
Lightweight roll-up signs do not need to be bolted to stationary poles or stands. When paired with portable sign stands, they require few tools to construct and easy disassembly makes cleanup faster, saving companies time and money.
Traffic Safety Direct carries two easy to use stand options that are compatible with our 36" and 48" roll-up signs. The SafeZone Series SZ-412 Springless Sign Stand is a compact, lightweight (20lbs.), and powder-coated and zinc plated for maximum corrosion resistance. Its single sign attachment point allows for quick deployment and the telescopic legs can be released quickly by hand or foot. Independently adjustable legs with three heights for uneven terrain make it ideal for use along right of ways and medians.
The Zephyr portable sign stand is constructed of a steel plate molded into a recycled rubber base. This stand is simple to use – just release the level and raise the mast to lock it into the upright position. There is no need to make additional adjustments. Two molded-in carrying handles make it easy to place or reposition signs as conditions on the job site change.
