Stocksigns Group Highlighting the Importance of Winter Signage in Cold Months Ahead

Stocksigns Group Highlighting the Importance of Winter Signage in Cold Months Ahead
16/01/2019

To prepare for the inevitable cold rush this season, Surrey-based Stocksigns Group (https://bit.ly/2SHsnTQ) has developed a range of various signage solutions for the winter months ahead to tackle extreme weather conditions. Over the last few years, the weather in the UK has been increasingly volatile, leading to busy roads and car parks being iced over at peak times.

According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), slips, trips and falls accident increase in the winter months for reasons such as reduced daylight or footpaths covered in wet leaves. These become serious slip hazards which allows ice and snow to build up (https://bit.ly/1w6c2El).

There are effective solutions that can reduce the risk of a slip, trip or accident. Stocksigns provide a wide range of affordable ice and snow signs which can be produced on 1mm rigid plastic, 22swg (0.75mm) aluminium or self-adhesive vinyl (https://bit.ly/2CaAwcd) to encourage drivers and pedestrians to be more aware of their surroundings in extreme weather.

Icy roads and car parks can prove tricky for both pedestrians and motorists, so signage can play a big part in improving safety for all. A popular product from Stocksigns is their range of temperature reactive ice warning signs. Ideal for car parks, the signs are available in two models; an LED model which with flashing blue lights in icy conditions, and a reflector model which turns from grey to blue to warn of possible icy surfaces.

On a larger scale, Messagemaker Displays (https://bit.ly/2VHeqY6), a subdivision of the Stocksigns Group who specialise in LED signage has developed a full colour fixed variable message sign (VMS), which displays the latest traffic information to motorists on roads and highways in real-time. This allows road users to know of occurrences such as road closures, queues ahead and upcoming events in the area, aiding the shortening of journey times to improve the overall travelling experience, especially when weather conditions worsen and driver behaviour is more difficult to anticipate (https://bit.ly/2RjRhMK).

Managing Director of the Stocksigns Group, Danny Adamson said “As a leading provider of safety signage to the industry, it is in our best interest to keep members of the public safe in the coming weeks and months when the weather takes a turn for the worse. It is important to make people aware with regards to the methods of coping with ice and snow, while educating others on how to stay conscious of these changing conditions.

“It is vital for warning signs to be eye-catching, so it is no surprise that our temperature reactive ice signs have proved very popular. Both the LED and reflector models are effective ways to indicate freezing temperatures and encourage more precautions to be taken by the individuals in close proximity. This can be a life-saving tool for those working outdoors, any one using a car parks and even those simply walking along footpaths.

Our Messagemaker Displays brand has various sign solutions for the winter months, but also for general accident prevention thereafter. Icy roads, closures and diversions can be communicated instantly to road users with our VMS signs, whether it’s a large-scale screen on the motorway, or a smaller sign for industrial estate roads.

Perhaps sometimes over-looked, signage plays an enormous role in accident prevention. We are committed to improving safety everywhere from the home, to work and on the road.”
