CA Speed and Warning signs

The CA SPEED Vehicle Activated Speed Control Sign.

The CA SPEED and WARNING sign ranges result from CA Traffic and VMS combining years of industry expertise to create an affordable solution for the urban and inter urban road environments of today.

The CA SPEED sign is a Vehicle Activated Speed Control Sign and addresses the issues of inappropriate speed where static signs have not proven effective.

The CA WARNING sign is a Vehicle Activated Hazard Warning Sign which provides additional warnings of a hazard ahead to road users.

The vehicle activated signs use CA’s new radar technology and combine it with the latest LED technology from VMS to produce a highly reliable and energy efficient sign for the highway environment. The signs are fully compliant with TSRGD and EN 12966 and TR1100.

The CA WARNING Vehicle Activated Hazard Warning Sign.

Logging technology provides feedback on the performance of the signs enhancing CA’s portfolio of traffic monitoring equipment and software that collects valuable data on vehicle volumes and classifications. A local wireless (Bluetooth) maintenance interface is included as standard to permit access to the logs within the sign as it is mounted at height.

The signs are designed to be lightweight for easy transportation and installation, utilising standard sign mounting rails for easy installation on existing infrastructure.

Mains supply is provided as standard with options to use stand alone sustainable energy systems e.g. a battery pack with solar / wind recharging where a local power feed is not available.
