How does it work?
When a vehicle collides with a sign post equipped with a breakaway system, the system is designed to allow the sign post to separate from the anchor post. Most systems work with simple components such as a pounded anchor, a post and a breakaway hardware.
In many cases, both the anchor post and the sign post can be reused after the accident. To do this, simply reattach the sign post to the ground post using a replacement breakaway pin. This process is straightforward and eliminates the need to excavate the anchor post and install a new one.
What are breakaway posts?
You know how in hockey, when players collide with the goal net, it comes off its anchor and slides away? This prevents countless injuries. Well, the idea behind breakaway posts is exactly the same.
A one-of-a-kind signage support!
Breakaway hardware is a unique type of street signage. Basically, you have a post anchor (a base) and a sign post (a long stick). The sign post is designed to break away from the base post upon impact. This reduces damage to vehicles and improves safety.
The advantages of our breakaway hardware
The installation process is simple and straightforward, both at the initial set up or after an impact using a breakaway hardware kit. Installation requires a single individual and can be performed on all types of soil.
A core idea behind breakaway sign post systems is their durability. Their capacity to endure not only time, but also impacts. Our materials are both high-performance and corrosion-resistant. We also offer a 25-year warranty.
