NTPEP Report 165 - Report of Flexible Delineator Impact Testing. (Summer 1999/Winter 2000 Testing Cycle)

The Summer 1999/Winter 2000 test series was conducted on six ground mount flexible delineator post systems. Each system was pre-approved by the National Transportation Product Evaluation Program (NTPEP) coordinator before testing commenced. Manufacturers submitted a set of ten posts with reflective sheeting attached for each delineator model or series that was tested. Eight of the ten posts were subjected to impact testing. The remaining two posts of each set were retained for ultravoilent exposure testing. Impact testing was conducted at both high and low ambient temperatures as specified in the test procedure. At each of the two temperature ranges the eight posts were impacted five times with the bumper and wheel of a standard automobile complying with bumper height requirements as outlined in the testing procedure. A series of photographs were taken and presented in the appendix of the report.
