Two-Piece Night Owl:

The reflex material of the base combined with the rigid polyethylene of the sign ensures that the bollard will withstand multiple impacts and return to upright without damage to the reflective surfaces, the sign or the base; thereby saving on expensive replacement costs. The reflectors are also recessed to further reduce potential damage with vehicle impacts.

  • Unique ‘dome’ shaped Base gives reliable bounce back performance irrespective of the type of impact (side scrape, side swipe or front on).
  • Base made from tough ‘Reflex’ material capable of withstanding impacts up to 70km/h to return the sign to an upright position ensuring the hazard remains clearly marked.
  • Moulded-in screw thread on the top of the Base means that no mechanical components are used on the sign.
  • Strong rigid construction of the sign withstands damage from the ‘trampling’ action of wheels running over the top of the sign.
  • The Sign section can be moulded in most colours including stone effect/mottle finishes for environmentally sensitive areas. See ‘Colour Options’ pop-up for the complete range.
  • The Two-Piece Night Owl Sign can be easily removed and replaced in under a minute reducing danger to Highway Contractors and inconvenience to road users.
  • No power supply required, therefore road closure can usually be avoided during installation.
  • Fluorescent, retroreflective material used as standard for high visibility.
  • Retroreflective panel on the Sign edge provides best in class visibility: 0.045m2 (BS 8442 requires a min of 0.02m2)
  • Recyclable material used throughout; suitable for environmental re-use.
  • Adapter plate available to allow the Base to be fixed to many existing mountings. See ‘Fixing Options’ pop-up below for all fixings.
  • Single or Double sided options
