The reflective prismatic chevrons on the back of many service vehicles are commonly referred to as Chapter 8 vehicle markings or Chapter 8 chevrons. Chapter 8 refers to the Traffic Signs Manual that is published by the Department for Transport. The eighth section (or chapter) of this manual refers to road safety during roadworks and temporary situations, and provides guidelines for the appropriate use of reflective chevrons on maintenance vehicles that may be parked at the side of the road.
The Chapter 8 guidelines recommend chevrons in red and yellow alternating stripes, where the red is a retroreflective material (typically high grade micro-prismatic film) and the fluorescent yellow is non-reflective. The experienced team at CGI can certainly help design and supply vehicle markings that comply with the Chapter 8 guidelines.
The use of reflective prismatic films need not only be limited to maintenance vehicles. Of course we can supply the reflective graphics for emergency vehicles, and there are a host of other applications too. The reflective films can be used to increase the visibility and safety of any vehicle, and we can complement this with the use of fluorescent inks, luminescent inks and reflective inks in our printed graphics… so if you want your fleet vehicles to really stand out, we can make sure they’re noticed even when (especially when) it’s dark.
Whether you need Chapter 8 vehicle markings for maintenance vehicles, reflective graphics for emergency vehicles, or simply some graphics that really stand out for your commercial fleet vehicles, the experienced team CGI are on hand to help. Whatever you need, we’ll manage the whole project from initial consultation, design and artwork, to manufacture, delivery and installation support.
Our experience goes beyond just creating some eye-catching vehicle graphics and Chapter 8 chevrons. We’ll consider the order in which the graphics will need to be applied, and make sure they are nested on the backing sheet in the most convenient and efficient way… and we’ll make sure that every element is manufactured to the tightest of tolerances, so everything will fit perfectly. All of this helps to make the installation as quick and simple as possible, whilst reducing wate, and keeping the cost down.
