High Capacity Sign Posts

Road safety is a top priority. Especially in hectic times, with heavily trafficked roads and busy minds, it is important to realize that even at low speeds, a car crash can be fatal. A collision with a Hydro sign post is an entirely different matter.

In addition to Hydro's crash-friendly aluminum lighting columns and traffic signal poles, we also offer aluminum sign posts. These high-capacity posts reduce the risk of personal injury even after a crash of high force. Thus our crash-friendly sign posts increase road safety.

To develop the safest constructions for our roads, we have conducted crash tests on our aluminium pole products since the 1970s. The knowledge we have gained from these tests has led to a range of safe, secure, and crash-friendly aluminium solutions that reduce the risk of personal injuries after a collision.
