Quick-Lock Post & Signs System
Switch to the Quick-Lock Post System for More Sustainable Temporary Signs
This is our game-changing solution for urban and streetwork schemes, the Quick-Lock Post System. Which benefits the environment as much as it does safety, by increasing road-work sustainability. Because not only does it provide a tidier assembly and more visible signs. And take up a far smaller footprint when compared to metal frames and sandbags. But its 3 parts are also recyclable, which helps hugely towards meeting your ESG responsibilities.
Sign Plates & Lugs
For the sign plates we use Enviroplate, our own sign substrate. Therefore it can withstand rough handling and heavy impacts without breaking. In addition to being highly resistant to bending out of shape, so your signs last longer. On the rear we pre-fit lugs for use with our slotted posts’ keyholes.
- For Circles/Triangles: Up to 750mm
- And Rectangles: Up to 1050x750mm
- Pre-Fitted with Quick-Lock Lugs.
- Substrate made from Reground Material.
- Can be Recycled at its End of Life.
Enviroplate: Durable & Flexible
Our Hi-Vis Posts display your sign plates vertically, providing increased visibility. Slotted means it comes with keyholes pre-cut into the post to match our Lugs. To mount a sign plate, simply push its lugs into the keyholes and push down to lock it in place. For extra security, your posts can be secured to the base using a pin.
- Yellow 60x60mm PVC Posts.
- Lengths: 1/1.5/2/2.5 metre
- Pre-cut with Keyholes for Lugs.
- Detaches & Deforms on Impact.
- PVC can be Recycled or Reground.
Quick-Lock Post System: Flyer & Guide
Since the sign assembly needs to be stable even in poor conditions, it uses a weighted base. For sustainability reasons, we decided on solid bases made from recycled material. As a result it provides reusable ballast that does not need re-filling. Each one comes with carry handles and a post hole for easy assembly. You will find Wind Loading figures below.
- Heavy Duty Euro Base.
- Weight: 9kg or 18kg
- Size: 410x410mm / 595x390mm
- With Post Hole & Carry Handles.
- Can Be Stacked for Extra Ballast.

Weight Saving Signs – A Case Study
On a 6-week multi-site installation, a partner was full of praise when giving feedback for a Case-Study. What had impressed them was the weight savings and how that lowered their labour and fuel costs. And how that benefit alone would lower their project’s impact on the environment.
For example: the overall weight saving for 30 signs is about 270kg. This is based on our signs being 9kg less than a typical Metal A Frame. This meant sign deployment for each site could be undertaken from a single vehicle. And that’s before you factor in or systems durability and recyclability.
Since they are designed to be stackable, multiple bases can be used for a single Quick-Lock Post System. When extreme conditions are expected, we suggest double stacking or using 18kg bases instead. For safety reasons we undertook wind loading tests in accordance with BS8442:2022 Appendix C. This testing is based on the maximum expected winds for urban and rural areas in all but the most severe conditions.
After collating the results, we suggest the ballasts shown below be deployed for the assemblies shown.

“After looking at the new signs, I would like to say how impressed I am with the design and ease of use. They fit well on the highway and I believe will allow for equipment to be moved and carried around the network more easily, thus allowing quicker and safer deployment on site. I am pleased to see that a traffic management company is trying to change the status quo for the better, to benefit drivers and pedestrians using our busy road network.”North Lincolnshire CouncilNetwork Manager
