Better visibility = better safety
By pinpointing hazardous bends, chevrons undoubtedly help to reduce accidents and casualties in dangerous locations. However, even these early warning signs can be ignored and collisions with chevrons can cause a hazard in themselves and can even remove the warning of an impending danger entirely.
We designed the Evo-Chev to specifically address these problems and to provide a fast installation process, limiting the time spent in the road by installation operatives, at these vulnerable sites.
Incorporating our patented base the Evo-Chev is designed to return to an upright position after impact and provides a continual warning of the upcoming hazard.
Improved safety for motorcyclists and cost savings delivered!

360 Degree Impact Resilience
We’ve designed, and tested, the Evo-Chev chevron system to withstand impacts from all angles. Most impacts will occur on the face of the system, but it’s good to know that in the event of something different the Evo-Chev as been tested to be resilient*. We know that with other systems on the market today it can be difficult to remove a vehicle from behind a rebound chevron system, i.e going through it backwards, this is not the case* with the Evo-Chev. Forwards or backwards, impact or recovery the Evo-Chev will rebound to an upright position*.
*The idea behind all passively safe products is better safety for the driver, traffic products are not indestructible and it is impossible to guarantee performance in every impact. However, we have carried out scientific and real-world tests in accordance with BS EN 12767 and achieved the highest safety rating of 100:NE:4.
Each Evo-Chev is supplied with a pre-spaced mounting plate, taking the guesswork out of correct spacing at time of installation. The individual blade design enables the replacement of damaged signs to be carried out in minimal time and at minimal cost.
or retrofit base
We also offer a unique base system, allowing the TMP Evo-Chev to be retro-fitted to other chevron blade system foundations, without the need for expensive excavation and requires no special tools.
Our Evo-Chev Passive Chevron System was nominated for the HEA-HEMSA Member – Product of the Year Award. The Award, sponsored by E.ON Energy Solutions, recognises the best in product design and manufacture.
