Engineer Grade Reflective Meets applicable requirements for Engineer Grade sheeting applications for Type I retro reflective sheeting as set forth in ASTM D 4956.
High Intensity Prismatic Sheeting: Best Value – Recommended
High intensity Prismatic sheeting is recommended where brighter daytime colors and slightly higher reflectivity levels are desired. Prismatic High Intensity sheeting is durable, highly reflective sheeting designed for traffic control and guide signs.
