Road signs suppliers provide the construction and roadworks industries with the proper signage in order to ensure that health and safety standards are met on works sites. But as with all industries in business, not every product is constructed the same; nor does every supplier strive to reach for the same levels of customer satisfaction. So how do you identify a good supplier of road work construction signs and barriers?

In this article, we cover some of the traits that customers should look out for in a supplier of such signage.

First of all, it’s possible to find road signage suppliers that also happen to be manufacturers. While many suppliers you find will buy signs wholesale to sell to you, road sign manufacturers also acting as suppliers will provide you with a better deal due to cutting out the intermediary link.

Not only that, but manufacturers are more likely to take pride in selling customers a quality product with their name on it; whereas wholesale suppliers are focused purely on selling in bulk regardless of quality.

As previously mentioned, customers not only want a quality product or service, as well as a great price, but they also want to be treated well – the buying experience matters most. A reputable company like Blue Iron will always use the best companies when it comes to safety. 



What types of signs exist?


Road sign maker and sign manufacturers produce a wide variety of signs for all manner of businesses across the country. However, as can be imagined, most of these signs are sought after by civil engineering, demolition and construction companies – as well as transport authorities across the country.

These signs all serve the same purpose (to impart information to drivers and passer-bys) but are put up for a variety of different reasons. In this short guide, we’re going to detail the different types of signs that you will find on the road and their purposes.

Traffic sign maker manufacturers produce a variety of signs. Regulatory signs are used to provider information regarding any restrictions, prohibitions and requirements – examples of which are ‘give way’ and ‘stop’ sign plates. Then there are warning signs which are used to notify drivers of any potential hazards or dangers that lie ahead.

Variable message signs are electronic signs which give drivers up-to-date information and are often seen above motorways (or giving drivers smiley faces for keeping under a speed limit). A rather large category of signs relates to traffic construction signs which covers traffic management, and temporary diversions and roadworks.

There are road sign manufacturers out there who specifically focus on this rather large category of roadwork and temporary roadwork signs. The importance of choosing a manufacturer with care who understands your business’ needs and has an outstanding reputation simply cannot be ignored. You cannot afford to take risks when you are dealing with health and safety. If you do, it can end up coming back to haunt you.
