A perfect solution for highways and non-highway applications, the Night Owl is a new, low-energy absorption highway sign providing an attractive, logical evolution in the iconic design of Keep Left Bollards.

The system comprises of two components: a universal bounce-back base unit designed to self-right the sign after impact and the Night Owl sign and graphics (conspicuity panels) designed to provide high visibility and durability in areas without street lighting.

The reflex material of the base combined with the rigid polyethene of the sign ensures that the bollard will withstand multiple impacts and return to upright without damage to the reflective surfaces, the sign or the base, thereby saving on expensive replacement costs. The reflectors are also recessed to further reduce potential damage from vehicle impacts.

Options:

The Night Owl bollard can be ordered with several graphic design options - blank white, keep left, keep right, left & right, in entry, out exit, cycle way indicator, speed notification, no entry, and notification sign. The graphic and reflector can be single or double-sided. You can also choose the type of fixing - surface mounted or concreted in.

Specification:

  • Unique dome-shaped base gives reliable bounce-back performance irrespective of the type of impact (side scrape, side swipe or front on)
  • Base made from tough ‘reflex’ material capable of withstanding impacts up to 70km/h to return the sign to an upright position, ensuring the hazard remains clearly marked
  • Moulded-in screw thread on the top of the base means that no mechanical components are used on the sign
  • The strong rigid construction of the sign withstands damage from the trampling action of wheels running over the top of the sign
  • The Night Owl can be easily removed and replaced in under a minute, reducing danger to Highway Contractors and inconvenience to road users
  • Fluorescent, retroreflective material used as standard for high visibility
  • Recyclable material used throughout; suitable for environmental re-use

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Can I Collect?

We understand many of our customers prefer to collect their orders rather than wait for delivery. Unlike many other suppliers most of our items are in stock! If you would like to collect your order please contact us to arrange a collection date and time. Our warehouse is located on the A13 Barking, London. Lots of free parking and easy to get to.

Keep in mind that if you've requested some customisations, like powder coating, you may need to allow extra time for us to complete the work. We can discuss this with you and ensure you get your order as soon as possible.

Please contact us if you have any questions.

How soon will I get my order if choosing delivery or install?

The time it takes to receive your order depends on the items you've ordered. Shelters are large items dispatched on pallets, so they sometimes take longer to deliver than smaller items like bike stands or bollards. We aim to dispatch all orders as soon as possible, and we'll keep you updated on the progress of your order.

Please consult the expected lead time on each product, normally shown at the bottom of the product website page.

If you need your order by a specific date, please let us know and we'll do our best to get it to you on time.

We can also provide a quote for customised products, like shelters with powder coating or different sizes than shown, or quotes for multiple item types.

Can you provide installation services?

We can provide installation services as part of a full quote. Please contact us with the details of your project and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Due to travel times and depending on the scale of your order, it may be cheaper to arrange installation from a local contractor and we will always tell you if this is the case.

Do you offer design services?
