Glasdon’s Chevroflex UltraDesigned to reduce traffic speed and accidents and proven passively safe at 100kph (62mph), Glasdon’s Chevroflex Ultra offers safety benefits for all road users and can be customised to the user’s requirements, says the company.

A flexible and contemporary design manufactured from new Impactaflex material, Chevroflex Ultra has been developed to provide superior rigidity and resilience; it bends on impact, significantly reducing the risk of injury.

Exceeding the industry standards for motorcycle-friendly, passively safe signs, delivers excellent recovery performance after a drive-through collision, the sign will restore to its original shape and function, reducing repair and replacement costs.

The extremely visible wall effect of the sign gives a clear indication ahead of any bends or hazards in the road, while the large black uprights and high reflective border ensure it is seen much earlier than any traditional pole-mounted metal signs.
