How to meet Chapter 8 requirements: materials specification and kits
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.
Vehicle Chevrons Chapter 8 kits are manufactured with materials supplied from all major manufacturers, and all are approved for highways markings, meeting the requirements of ECE104 and Chapter 8.
Most products are warranted between 2 and 8 years.
We create our kits in approved conspicuity materials. We use Aura for Engineering Grade and Avery Dennison for Prismatic.
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.
We manufacture kits from Aura 112 Engineering Grade red coupled with Aura 139 Fluorescent yellow.
We manufacture kits from Avery T6508 red (confirmed to be class R3B compliant) coupled with Aura 139 Fluorescent yellow.
