All Radarsign pole bases are safety compliant breakaway bases and are FHWA compliant. Our selection of pole bases include a black decorative base for a more architectural look as well as octagonal or square aluminum bases. Our concrete form kit for the aluminum bases makes the installation of the pole base easy and convenient.
Radarsign’s Safety Compliant Breakaway Pole Base
All Radarsign aluminum bases are safety compliant breakaway bases and are FHWA compliant. Our bases are designed to minimize damage and injury in the event of impact with the sign.
In an incident where a Radarsign driver feedback sign was installed, a hit and run driver ran off the road and collided with the sign. The local police investigated the incident. It was estimated that the vehicle was traveling approximately 40-50MPH in a 25 MPH zone when it crossed lanes and struck the radar speed sign.
Radarsign’s pole base broke away from the sign pole on impact as it was designed to do. The radar speed sign sustained minimal cosmetic damage to the YOUR SPEED faceplate and the radar speed sign and solar panel remained operational and intact.
