Polycarbonate signals are replacing aluminum signals because they provide a complete, versatile and reliable product at a significantly lower cost than aluminum signals. The polycarbonate signal is also much lighter to work with, and is easier to install.
Our poly signal line has been designed using a “Building Block” approach – individual signal housings can be quickly and easily combined to meet your specific signaling requirements.
Fortran’s polycarbonate signals are made from a very tough, impact resistant, flame retardant, UV stabilized polycarbonate material. The color is uniform throughout the thickness of the material, eliminating the fading and paint peeling associated with the aluminum signals. Poly signals have been tested to withstand severe weather conditions. Stainless steel hardware is used throughout.
Each section has a bottom drip shield to prevent water infiltration. Neoprene gaskets on both door and lens, completely seal the interior of the traffic signal head. Dual latches and hinges keep the doors well secured to prevent moisture and dirt from entering.
