What is a Delineator ?
Delinators are used to seperate pedestrian and vehicle traffic, to guide in vehicle traffic and to provide security at the beginning of the refuge. Flexible strip separator is a traffic safety material. The delinator produced from TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) is unbreakable and flexible due to its material. Thanks to this feature, it is long lasting and does not damage the vehicles.
What are the dimensions?
The standart heights of the delineators are 30, 45, 75, and 100 cm.
Commonly pipe type delienators with 8 cm diameter are preferred, but if needed delineators with 9 and 10 cm diameter are also produced. The strength of the delineator increases with increasing pipe diameter because the amount of material increases with diameter size.
Which colors are available ?
Delineator colors vary widely. Known and most preferred color is fluorescent orange. This color is ideal because it is noticeable and stimulating. Other colors like black, white, yellow, blue, green are also available on request.
Reflective Collars and Features
It is ideal to have 1 reflective collar at 30 cm height, 2 reflective collars at 45 cm height, 3 reflective collars at 75 cm height and 4 reflective collars at 100 cm height. Reflective tapes may have normal performance or high performance.
Normal Performance Reflective (Type-1) Tapes last for many years in severe weather conditions, are fading and UV resistant . High nighttime visibility enhances the roadway safety for drivers day and night. It has a plain prismatic pattern.
High Performance Reflective (Type-3/4) Tapes last for many years in severe weather conditions, are fading and UV resistant . High nighttime visibility enhances the roadway safety for drivers day and night. It has a honeycomb prismatic pattern.
It is important that the reflective tape is firmly adhered to the delineator. The price and quality of the product is affected by the chosen reflective sheeting type.
How to tell the quality of delineator ?
Which one should we choose when there are different kinds of delineators from different manufacturers? The material of the body and the reflective tape on it determines the quality of the product. Today’s Delineator posts are made of durable weather resistant and withstand numerous high speed traffic impacts with minimal adverse effects. polymers and plastics,
The amount of the TPU in the compound directly affects product quality. The material thickness and weight determines the ideal product.
How to Install Delineators ?
Mounting is done from 3 or 4 holes in the base. On asphalt and concrete slabs the delineators are applied with lag screw and fixing plugs. This application is sufficient to hold the product on the floor. 16 mm plastic fixing plugs and 10 x 100mm lag screws are used. In some applications, the adhesion to the ground is increased with epoxy resins.
