Loose Road Surface Quick Fit Sign Face (Frame Not Included)

This quick-fit road sign face shows diagram 7001, Loose Chippings, with 7009.1, Skid Risk/ Maximum Speed 20mph. Its use is for when a new surface dressing has been applied to the road surface.

Although this process is for improving the skidding resistance and preventing water ingress, the loose gravel left behind can cause a hazard. Workers will spray the road with hot bitumen and roll in stone chippings to fill any gaps. The road is brushed but loose and left over chippings will remain. This can pose a threat to road users as loose stones can get thrown into the path of oncoming traffic or vehicles can skid across the surface.

Loose Chippings Road Sign

Fully Compliant

While road works are happening, 7009 with the plate to diagram 513.2 is used with a max speed of 10 miles per hour. Once complete and the traffic authority permits there is less danger, the speed limit may be increased to 20mph through the plate to 7009.1. It is not permitted to change this speed. Further advice on signing during surface dressing operations can be found here.

This would be positioned on the left hand side of UK roads. Our quick-fit range is made from high-quality 3mm PVC and is graded at RA1 reflectivity to gently highlight the wording without the extra cost of higher reflectivity. The skid sign comes with 300mm hole centres for use on a quick-fit mini frame. Other sizes can be ordered upon request, however.

These should match the sign frames that you already have, or are intending to buy. Some of our signs will come with both sets of holes drilled.

The size of the sign face that you need will be dictated by the guidelines in the Chapter 8 guidelines.
