Chapter 8 Chevrons

3M provide a range of materials that can be used to mark the rear, sides and front of all vehicles that meet Chapter 8.


3M™ Diamond Grade DG³ Reflective Sheeting 4092 (Red)

Red portion of the chevron

Chapter 8 makes specific reference to the use of 'Class RA2' and 'microprismatic' reflective markings' on the rear of vehicles being used on high speed roads. Diamond Grade DG³ Reflective Sheeting Series 4092 is a super-high efficiency, full cube retro-reflective sheeting designed for the production of durable vehicle conspicuity markings as required by Chapter 8. It is designed to have the highest retro-reflective characteristics at medium and short road distances, which represent the most common viewing geometries encountered by the driving public. 4092 sheeting also provides brightness at high entrance angles.

Diamond Grade 4092 sheeting is suitable for the rear or vehicles used for highway maintenance activities, according to the specifications laid down in Chapter 8 part 2, O5.2.3 and paragraphs O5.5.2 to O5.5.5.
