Type 11 – Super High All Observation Angle Efficiency Highway Signage – Overhead Signs
Type 11 retro reflective sheeting is manufactured as an unmetallized cube corner micro-prismatic air backed retro-reflective material. This super-high efficiency sheeting is designed to perform best at both medium and short sight distances. This and its wide angle of view-ability makes Type XI a very adaptable sheeting that municipalities and state agencies can use to improve road safety. A typical use for Type 11 sheeting would be overhead signs on interstates. However, since it is a wide observation film, it can also be used for all the applications of a Type 9 sheeting. Its high performance eliminates the need for external lighting, which results in considerable cost savings on maintenance and energy.
Type 11 retro reflective sheeting is the very latest in reflective technology and is quickly being adopted across the country for Highway Signage.
