Gantry with 3 legs

Passive safety gantry with three legs for signs and all other types of traffic information and surveillance above the road with several lanes and a wide span

 

Complete gantry with three legs includes:

  • Lattix® passive safety legs
  • Lattix® passive safety transsom
  • Foot plates with washers and bolts
  • 90 degree connectors
  • Endplates at open end of transsom

The Lattix® 4438 mast system can be used as mast for sign support, other information and surveillance equipment or other applications. The mast is delivered as a complete assembly including mast, base plate and top plate.

 

The mast is tested and approved according to:

  • EN 12899-1, Fixed, vertical road traffic signs
  • EN 12767, Passive Safety of support of structures for road equipment

 

Full-scale impact crash tests and simulations have been performed according to EN 12767 at a speed of 35 km/h and 100 km/h with 6,3 m mast length. Simulations show that the mast will have equal performance up to 8,623 m length. Consequently, the mast is approved for maximal 8,623 m and minimal 1,8 m from the ground to bottom of sign.

 

The sign mounted to a single mast should not weight more than 200 kg and needs to be dimensioned according to local wind loads.

 

All performance presumes sufficient foundation.
