Reflective Chevrons are designed to provide high visibility. Complying with Chapter 8 regulations the use of reflective chevrons on highway maintenance vehicles helps workers keep safe.
- Chapter 8 part 2 section O5 is about protecting workers and vehicles that have to work on high speed roads, although it recommends the same specifications be used for works vehicles on all types of highway, irrespective of speed limit.
- It requires, on high-speed roads, that all vehicles stopping on the highway for works purposes or inspections shall be equipped with high visibility rear markings.
- Permitted markings include chevrons comprising alternate strips of fluorescent orange-red retro reflective material and fluorescent yellow non-retro reflective material.
- Each strip of the chevron must be not less than 150 mm in width, inclined at 45-60° to the horizontal and pointing upwards.
- An alternative to chevrons is a solid block of fluorescent orange-red retroreflective material.
- Red retroreflective tape must also be applied to all rear facing edges of open doors, guardrails and equipment lockers, and to the face of any device that obscures the markings and is displayed to the rear and other road users.
- The reflective markings must be ‘Class RA2’ or ‘micro-prismatic’ in the case of rear markings and ‘high visibility fluorescent or non fluorescent yellow reflective’ in the case of side markings
