The passively safe posts have heralded a new era in road safety, and providing an innovative solution that fits neatly with the Highways Agency’s commitment to creating a more forgiving and safer roadside.

Great Crash Test Performance

In crash tests at TRL, the 140 post was rated as N3 classification at 100kph, and at NE2 at 70kph. That gives it the highest safety ranking for a post of this kind.

The FSP Frangible Post System is designed to crumple on impact, and can be said to reduce the risk of secondary accidents associated with debris from the first accident.

Kloeckner Metals UK are the specialist stockist and distributor of this exciting FSP Frangible product. It also compliments well with the other metal product ranges we distribute for sign fabrication. Our excellent customer service should ensure you receive the FSP Frangible Post exactly as required.

Cost Benefits

With the FSP Frangible Post System installation is quick and easy due to using standard equipment and techniques. One installer commented, “A very straightforward installation. It’s even easier than steel posts where we would normally use some lifting equipment’.

The post can be installed in a similar way to a standard steel post i.e. set directly into a concrete foundation or a socket that has previously been set in concrete. Even the clips to hold the sign in place on a steel post work on the FSP Frangible fibre reinforced composite post. And, of course the post is very light so this makes it much easier to handle, and potentially much easier and quicker to install.

Data Availability

Structural performance data for the product will be made available directly to specifiers and users of the FSP Frangible Post System in order that it can be designed into local applications. This data is also being distributed to providers of sign design  software so that as new releases become available they can reflect the suitability of our product for particular sites.

Wide Based Posts

A combination of bases and shafts are available within our range of wide based posts. Material is held in a galvanised condition as standard and can be bitumen rooted or fully painted to suit your requirements.

Post Caps & Base Plates

A full range of plastic internal and external post caps are stocked in house to match our range of mild steel and aluminium sign posts. These are kept in standard road traffic grey, white and black for the use on circular or rectangular posts.
