Delineator post and its uses | Biri Trading UK

A delineator is a type of traffic marker, and when properly installed, they basically look like plastic stanchions sticking to the road. These are most commonly used to divide the lanes of a road and direct the flow of traffic.

Especially used at construction sites and places where normal traffic patterns have recently changed. The post usually consists of a plastic tube, hinges, and base. Posts can be installed temporarily or permanently, depending on the type of delineator posts and the materials used to install them. It is used only during the construction project and may be removed once the dust has settled. They may stay longer after the bulldozer leaves and continue to help maintain order on the busy streets!

 "Delineator of different colors and sizes?"

Yes! The appearance of the delineator can vary significantly. This shows the number of different posts offered in the product catalog. Some posts are similar to monochromatic "straws", while others have details such as white stripes and reflective elements to improve visibility. The shape of the base depends on whether the stanchions are mounted on the sidewalk or on the ground. The former uses a flat base (to pick up the adhesive on a flat surface) and the latter is tapered to make it easier to drive the post into the ground. Finally, you can adjust the height of the stanchions. Some stanchions can be as short as 18 inches and others as high as 72 inches.

 "What are the advantages of using delineator posts over other types of traffic signs?"

Buyers tend to choose delineators over other road marking tools for a variety of reasons. These include:

»» Durability. Many cultures around the world have sayings that small, thin reeds tend to bend and survive in the face of strong winds, but tall, hard trees simply break. The important thing is to explain the idea that hard and unyielding things are often considered "strong" and adaptable things are "weak", but flexibility can also be strength.

And that is the principle behind the guardrail. The plastic stanchions can't really stop the car from running in or over it, and pedestrians who really decide to get over it can push the parts away, but no action. Does not destroy the stanchions. Unless the base of the stanchion is catastrophically damaged, the delineator simply returns to its original position. This means less cost to replace posts and less time to maintain and repair.

 »» Visibility and excellence. Paint markers and ceramic channel markers are usually sufficient.
