How Road Signs Direct is responding to the Coronavirus

In the wake of the Coronavirus, our highest priority is to do our part to help ensure the health and safety of our employees, customers, and suppliers while meeting our service commitments.

At the moment our production is running at 15 working days for standard items. Manufacture of custom items can take up to 20 working days.

Please note, as staffing and courier operations are variable at this time, the above is to be used as a guide only. We will endeavour to operate as close to normal as possible during this period.

All of our office staff are currently working from home so you may experience a short delay when your call is being forwarded to one of the team.

In the coming days and weeks we may experience some slight delays to delivery due to a courier backlog, however, in this event we will update the website accordingly.


Ice Guardian - Standard Design - Wall Mount


The Ice Guardian warning sign is a necessity for all companies to whom want to minimise the risk of ice related accidents on their sites, influencing both pedestrians and drivers to take more care in icy conditions. The Ice Guardian sign is generally used for off-highway applications including: quarry sites, campuses, car parks, oil rigs etc. They may be used to warn traffic as well as pedestrians.

How It Works

The sign has been designed to minimise power consumption. The low power footprint of the sign combined with advanced power management results in the sign requiring just 6 AA batteries. The LEDs flash for 30 mS every 2 seconds and power is minimised by switching the sign to sleep mode when not required. The combined effect of these is to give the sign a two to three year life per set of batteries. Batteries can be changed easily when required.


A sensor on the circuit board triggers a flashing sequence when the temperature reaches 3 degrees Celsius.
