We supply passively safe posts to the UK, European and Worldwide market.

It has been estimated that vehicle collisions with rigid roadside features such as sign posts cause over 15% of all road fatalities.

These objects cannot always be removed and this is where the fully-tested and passively safe Frangible Safety Post System can help save lives: it gives way when struck. The Frangible Safety Post has a unique patent protected design which combines the strength to support large signs in strong winds with the ability to shatter, collapsing in a predictable and safe manner, if struck by an errant vehicle. This passively safe sign post complies with BS EN 12767 and BS EN 12899-1.

The Frangible Safety Post:

  • FSP has a range of three sizes immediately available – 219mm, 168mm and 140mm.
  • The 140mm Post has achieved an NE:3 rating in 100kph independent crash tests - the highest rating awarded.
  • The 219mm and 168mm Posts have been rated NE:2 after completing testing at MIRA in June 2010.
  • The 140mm Post has an NE:2 classification at 100kph when two posts are struck at 750mm spacing - no other post has achieved that rating.
  • Our posts are extremely light and weigh only 4.2kg (140mm), 6.5kg (168mm) and 10.3kg (219mm) per meter making manual handling and installation easier.
