THE WORLD'S TOUGHEST GUIDE POSTS – QUICK INSTALL FOR BITUMEN

Steel-Flex ® is the most durable roadside delineator post available. It is roll formed from a special grade of high-performance spring steel, then protected by an ArmorGalv ® thermal diffusion galvanised coating. Each post is then powder coated to provide a high gloss, UV resistant colour finish. Steel-Flex ® is available in a wide range of colours and can be fitted with any delineation you require. Its unique design and manufacturing process gives Steel-Flex ® exceptionally high corrosion resistance, even after being impacted.

Delnorth Steel-Flex ® is a patented flexible steel delineator post. Steel-Flex ® may be driven into the ground or road base using a Delnorth designed manual or mechanical driving device. Steel-Flex ® is capable of withstanding repeated impacts and wheel overs by vehicles with minimal damage to the post or vehicle. Steel-Flex ® roadside delineator posts comply with:

British & European Standard E N 12899 – 3:2008 & Australian Standard AS 1742.2 and AS/NZ 1906.1

Steel-Flex ® can retain a minimum of 75% of colour, appearance and physical properties for 10 years even when exposed to extreme weather conditions. They are fire resistant and the powder coating can withstand temperatures of up to 140°C.

Steel-Flex ® flexible steel delineator posts stand vertical when installed. Testing has shown that the post will not deflect more than 35mm when subjected to wind speeds of 45m / sec. (162 kph) on the front face (convex surface) of the post.

The load required to bend each post length of 1000mm long to an angle of 90° should not be less than 30N. It only requires 5kg pressure to bend a Steel-Flex ® post.

Steel-Flex ® delineator posts return to vertical automatically after repeated vehicle impacts. They have been tested to 10 impacts from a passenger type vehicle at 100 kph without compromising the integrity of the post. It has been tested to ten wheel over’s at 50kph from a fully laden 42 tonne truck without compromising the integrity of the post.
