30th June 2021

With the multiple documents, specifications and guidelines to be considered when deploying reflective safety markings on vehicles, and with a wide range of products available it can be confusing to choose the right material for your Chapter 8 kits.

What material do you need?

The choice between Engineering Grade and Prismatic for your Chapter 8 kit depends on the type of vehicle and on what roads it will be used on. Read our guide to Chapter 8 kits to find out what material is best for your needs.
