RETROREFLECTIVE MATERIALS AND DEVICES FOR ROAD TRAFFIC CONTROL PURPOSES. PART 1, RETROREFLECTIVE MATERIALS

This standard relates to materials and devices intended to provide the required night-time luminance of traffic signs and road delineators by retroreflective means, utilizing the headlight beam of the road vehicle in which the observer (driver) is travelling. It covers only material for use on roadside devices displaying a vertical or near-vertical surface to drivers, and excludes reflectorization of devices, such as pavement markings and raised reflective pavement markers, which are intended to be traversed by vehicle wheels. Chromaticity coordinates and photometric performance are specified for a range of colours designated by the Australian Committee on Road Devices (ACORD) and included in as 1743. Also specified are the physical properties and durability of the material. Tests to check compliance within specified limits are described. (A) /TRRL/
