IPLD has been nominated by the Plastics Industry Awards for its work on the innovative Alpha A sign with client Viz Reflectives.
The ground breaking sign allows roadworks crews to take fewer signs out on their trucks, thereby reducing weight, fuel consumption and operating costs. The unique interchangeable system allows different sign faces to be used, meaning fewer bases can be carried.
The blow moulded base was designed to be light, to stack very flat and to provide very little wind resistance, making it extremely stable. Its rugged durability was proven with tests at 30mph by a three ton truck! The modular system also means only the sign face need be replaced when damaged, rather than the whole sign.
IPLD has also been nominated for Young Designer of the Year. So fingers crossed on Awards Night!
