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 polyethylene 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 with vehicle impacts.



  • 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
  • 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
  • Can be root fixed or surface mounted
