Traffic control flow plates can be deployed to cover most roadways to restrict the flow of traffic in a single direction. A series of traffic flow plates offer a practical cost effective solution to most traffic control problems. Designed for strength and durability, the traffic flow plates encourage a one way traffic flow and help to prevent unauthorised entry or exit, thereby enabling vehicle movement to be managed and controlled.
The plates present a ‘self-returning’ pivoting plate against all approaching traffic which are manufactured in ‘durbar’ heavy duty steel plate finished in traffic yellow as standard. This product should be used in conjunction with warning signs such as ‘no entry signs’ and also ‘speed ramp’, please see the speed ramp product page. On-coming traffic should meet the plates at no more than a 15-degree angle. Adequate illumination should also be provided and the recessed version unit is required to be submerged into the road surface and requires adequate provision for drainage. They are both manufactured in accordance with BS 6571, and welding to the BS 4872-1:1982 standard. With heavy duty steel construction, the traffic flow plates have been uniquely designed, tested and proven to withstand continuous use and can be used by most types of vehicles, including HGV’s for the recessed version only. Internal rubber buffers fitted within the units reduce noise levels. A unique replaceable top plate on the recessed model negates the risk of costly excavations should replacement parts or maintenance become necessary to the unit. The surface mounted version is suitable for areas where excavations cannot take place, e.g. multi storey car parks and both versions have an optional ‘lock down’ facility.
