Retro-reflective Sheeting

Impact Recovery Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce several upgrades to our line which will enhance the durability and retro-reflectivity of our products.  

First, Orafol® 5930 Series retro-reflective sheeting will be used on our industry leading in-street pedestrian signs.  This ASTM D4956 Type IV sheeting provides superior flexibility and crack resistance compared to previously-used sheeting types.  We also believe this change provides for a more aesthetically appealing product, as this sheeting eliminates vertical and horizontal die-lines visible in other sheeting types.  Products affected include our standard In-Street Pedestrian Sign, Omni-Ped®, and Ped-in-a-Bag lines.

Second, we will begin using a Type V delineator sheeting on our tubular markers and delineators specified for high intensity sheeting.   We will be standardizing on ORALITE® AR-1000 Super High Intensity Abrasion Resistant retro-reflective sheeting.  This sheeting provides longer life and far greater retro-reflectivity than Type IV High Intensity sheeting commonly used in the industry.

This change is being phased in effective immediately and will begin shipping as previous stocks are depleted.  For specific demands, i.e. other types or manufacturers, contact your sales representative to discuss custom options.  Cost and schedule premiums may apply due to smaller production runs.
