A delineator is a warning sign that serves to warn motorists of various situations that may arise on the road. In most cases, a road flexible delineator indicates danger or risk. Its effective application along the road can prevent unfortunate events such as traffic accidents.
Although in that sense, this article is focused on traffic system-related delineators, the truth is that they are also used in other areas. Examples are navigation systems (both air and maritime) and some industrial sectors.
However, regardless of the field, the purpose of installing a delineator remains the same. In order to unveil its usefulness, today at Kalitec we present a series of four reasons to install a delineator. Do you want to know them? Continue reading this article.
- Allows you to warn of danger on the roadThe first and most obvious, installing a delineator will allow you to prevent road mishaps. They are generally placed along the road in order to establish a reference parameter between our location and the danger zone. The obstacle warning delineator is of recurrent use.Given their versatility, a convenient way to use them is to assign specific colors based on their use. It is not surprising to come across a red delineator, a green delineator or a blue and white delineator.To know their meaning, it is important to check the guidelines established by the Ministry of Traffic.Each one can be assigned a particular meaning. The most common are warning, caution and orientation. However, they are also an excellent mechanism to improve visibility.
- A delineator increases roadside visibilityVisibility is one of the most important elements when driving. Lack of it can result in fatal consequences. Therefore, it is important that traffic signs (including delineators) comply with the regulations of each city.Just as we are experiencing modernization in other areas, so are the signaling instruments. To that end, Kalitec relies on Delnorth’s flexible Steel-Flex delineator. Thanks to its performance and durability, it is very popular not only in Quebec, but also in the rest of the world.Its design is ideal for roadside placement. Thanks to its unique system, it is highly visible even at night and in adverse weather conditions.
- Improved safety conditions for motoristsThe intersection delineator provides the user with safety on the road, increased visibility and reduced risk of accidents. Steel-Flex technology is ideal due to its design and structure. Among the advantages it has in relation to safety we can mention:
- Its ability to return to its original state after an impact: it is capable of returning to its normal state up to 1500 times. It is important to emphasize this fact, because thanks to this, the visualization of the road is not interrupted.
- Its glossy finish reduces traffic accidents. As it is a luminous signaling delineator, thanks to its reflective strips, the visualization of the race remains intact. Its effect is similar to that of an LED delineator.
