Before going into the types of beaconing signs that exist, it is convenient to define what they are exactly. The beacon signs are that set of lights and devices that, as their name suggests, indicate that a road is being built, designing a layout or the obstacles that are on it. 

Broadly speaking, there are two types of signals:

  • Fixed beacons: they are composed of guiding devices.

  • Variable beacon signs: these are formed at specific times that modify the normal regime of road use, i.e., barrier devices.

Types of fixed beacon signs and their functions

Guidance devices are a type of fixed beacon signs whose main function is to indicate changes in the road or the existence of a potential problem. On the other hand, these signs indicate the limits of works that may be on that road or other possible obstacles.

Below, we detail the types of fixed beacon signs that exist, all of which are included in our catalogue of beacons for public roads.

  • Vertex milestone: it is a sign with a semi-cylindrical shape on the front and a series of triangles on the back. They are designed with a type of retro-reflective material that improves their visibility.

  • Edge marker: the main purpose of this sign is to mark the edges of roads at night or when there is less visibility.

  • Permanent directional panel: this device is designed to be able to guide and signal users to a specific hazard.

  • Horizontal reflectors (also known as cat’s eyes): they are placed on the road to highlight the lane boundaries or the direction of traffic.  The functions of horizontal reflectors are many, and you can find out more about them here.

  • Barrier beacons: if they are located on the right side of the road, their colour is white or yellow, but if they are located on the left side, their colour is white. At T2S Ibérica you will find the leading bionda barrier beacons on the market.

  • Flat beacons: these are elements that mark the edge of the roadway, the limits of construction sites or other obstacles on the road.

  • Cylindrical beacons: they are in charge of reinforcing any security measure and cannot cross the line.
