Components for positive guidance to help keep everyone safe.
Given the unique needs of work zones, highly visible retroreflective technology can help provide positive guidance both day and night. This guidance is critical for the safety of drivers and workers alike. Effective signage, temporary pavement markings, and traffic control devices can provide enhanced visibility and improved safety by alerting motorists to changes in conditions and road work location, change in speed, road configuration and more.
The sooner drivers and pedestrians recognise they are entering a work zone, the safer everyone and workers can be.
Work zone conditions can easily compromise the positioning and visibility of traffic control devices. Better, more visible, signs attract the driver’s attention sooner, for earlier comprehension and a more natural, timely driving reaction among other drivers and workers nearby.

Regardless of available light, highly conspicuous fluorescent material's are recognised at greater distances with more accurate colour perception than nonfluorescent coloured products.*

Temporary traffic zones exist in all types of seasons and all sorts of weather conditions.
Wet reflective pavement markings work with water to remain highly visible in the rain and wet road conditions. The retroreflective continuous delineation emphasises lane shifts in low-visibility conditions.
Applying 3M™ Wet Reflective Pavement Markings for traffic changeovers can be critical to helping drivers navigate work zones safely—especially during rainy weather.
