Intertraffic visitors can view Tubthumpa, which is claimed to be ‘the ultimate rebounding signpost’, on the Saferoads
Pty stand in Hall 5. Tubthumpa is an integrated rebounding post and sign designed to eliminate constantly damaged signs on traffic islands and centre medians.
According to the company, Tubthumpa has been tested for impacts up to 60km/h (including direct wheel overs) and saves authorities both time and money as there is no need to send crews to repair bent signs or posts and damaged footings.
The Australian-designed multipurpose post has a durable polyurethane hinge and incorporates a stainless steel strengthening plate in the base for anchoring to the surface. It has custom sign faces, comes in two sizes and has a five-year warranty on manufactured parts.
