Hole & Layout Configuration
Regulatory Chevron Alignment Sign (W1-8)
- Chevron Alignment (W1-8) Sign is used to provide additional emphasis and guidance for a change in horizontal alignment of the roadway.
- A Chevron sign may be used as an alternate or supplement to standard delineators and edge lines as appropriate on curves.
- This sign is a vertical rectangle with no border.
- If used, it should be installed on the outside of a turn or curve, in line with and at approximately a right angle to approaching traffic.
- Chevron signs should be visible for a sufficient distance to provide the road user with adequate time to react to the change in alignment.
- Chevron signs should not be placed on the far side of a T-intersection facing traffic.
- Chevron signs should not be used to mark obstructions within or adjacent to the roadway.
- To learn about Chevron Alignment Sign position, distance, etc see MUTCD Section 2C.10 Chevron Alignment Sign (W1-8)
- Please note, different states may have different posting requirements.

Engineering Grade Reflective Aluminum
A durable enclosed lens retro-reflective material permanently adhered to aluminum. It is an economical choice for non-critical traffic signs, parking lot signs, and safety signs. The pattern free face allows for clean graphic imaging. It meets the requirements of ASTM D4956 Type I, and will remain effective for up to 7 years. Resistant to fading and mild chemicals.
||0.08″||Up to 7 Years||-10°F - 130°F||
High Intensity Prismatic Reflective Aluminum
A microprismatic retro-reflective sheeting permanently adhered to aluminum that provides a high level of retroreflectivity, and meets the requirements of ASTM D4956 Type IV. It is 3 to 4 times brighter than standard Engineering Grade sheeting, and will remain effective for up to 10 years.
||0.08″||7 to 10 Years||-10°F - 130°F||
Diamond Grade Reflective Aluminum
A high efficiency, microprismatic retro-reflective material permanently adhered to aluminum, designed to be highly visible during the day, at night, and during inclement weather. It has excellent visibility at wide entrance and observation angles, and meets the requirements of ASTM D4956 Type IX. It is 10 times brighter than standard Engineering Grade sheeting, and will remain effective for up to 12 years.

SafetySign.com’s advanced printing process undergoes a stringent cross-hatching test. This specifically tests the adhesion and resistance to separation of the inks from the sign. In testing, a sample from the printing process is scored and covered in adhesive tape. The tape is removed and the sample assessed for adhesion quality.
We use a three-stage process to test all of our printing processes. We print our signs using only the processes that pass all three stages, giving you the highest quality signage possible.
