Retroreflective Markings for Farm and Forestry Equipment
Harvesting machines and other wide and heavy farm and forestry machines as well as their protruding implements need to be marked with retroreflective installations in form of different warning signs and plates in order to make other road users aware of the abnormal dimensions of the equipment.
For some components, red and white chevron marking is used e.g., on front plates and projecting load marker boards. The reflective film used, complies with DIN 30710 in terms of colour and retroreflectivity. Our rear marking plates comply with ECE 70 class 5.
Depending on the vehicles and the region they are used in, other signs such as “Convoi Excepcionnel” or “Überbreite folgt” need to be part of the safety marking. Conspicuity tape according to ECE 104 as well as round or rectangular reflectors are often required to mark sides, rear or front of the vehicles.
