Description

Blinking LED Stop Sign are properly known as LED-embedded static traffic signs (LETS) on Canadian roads. The conspicuity of a static traffic sign can be increased by embedding light emitting diodes (LEDs) on the sign face. LEDs on the sign face may also serve to increase the legibility distance of the sign by highlighting the sign message or the outline of a uniquely shaped static sign. Due to the potential for LED-embedded traffic signs to be distracting, and because excessive use may decrease the effectiveness of similar static signs, blinking LED-embedded traffic signs use should be limited.

To take advantage of the shape-recognition advantage provided by LETS, LETS should be restricted to STOP signs, YIELD signs, and the stop side of the STOP/SLOW paddle as these are uniquely shaped signs and are most easily recognized from shape alone. Signage for school zones and pedestrian crossing should be reviewed on a community needs basis. This product meets the guidelines for the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Canada (MUTCDC), which is the primary reference document for practitioners concerning traffic control devices design and use.

Meets or Exceeds ASTM D 4956, Type IX or Type XI

Related Terms:

HIP High-Intensity Prismatic

3X brighter than Engineer-Grade Prismatic. Effective for daytime, nighttime and artificial light conditions. Provides durability and long-term reflectivity.

Meets ASTM D 4956, Type III, Type IV.

Related Terms:

ENG Engineer Grade

Economical prismatic sheeting provides better day and nighttime brightness and is recommended for commercial sign applications as well as non-critical traffic control signs, regulated by the MUTCD.

Meets ASTM D 4956 Type I

Substrate Material Types

Aluminum Blanks

Aluminum sheeting meets or exceeds ASTM 5052-H38 specifications and is .081" thick. Traffic signs use this specification to meet Transportation Standards, unless otherwise stated for non-critical traffic signage or commercial applications. All aluminum blanks come with pre-drilled holes for mounting, and rounded corners.

Meets or Exceeds ASTM 5052-H38, 0.081" Thickness

Crezone (HDO) Wood

Crezone HDO (High Density Overlaid) board is extremely durable exterior type plywood with a weather-resistant resin overlay bonded to the wood by heat and pressure. This process fuses the molecules of the overlay with the fibres of the wood to form a bond as strong as the wood itself. In many instances, overlaid HDO plywood has proven a more durable sign material than metal. HDO plywood is resistant to the elements with no danger of rust or corrosion. It is typically used for larger signs, or uncommon sizes made-to-order.
