Speed Limit Signs

Speed limit signs make it much easier to control the behaviour of traffic on your premises. They’re particularly important if you have a large parking area, a busy area for picking up and dropping off, or a long driveway on which vehicles need to pass one another. All our signs use standard symbols, so they are easy for drivers to recognise and understand. Some emphasise that pedestrians are using the same area, further encouraging drivers to be careful. Search our selection to find the right ones for you.

We have a full range of signs for speed limits of five, ten, 15 and 20 miles per hour – the maximum you should allow. Depending on how vehicles move around your premises, you may want to use different signs in different areas. All are built from tough materials and are easy to attach to different types of surface. They’re weather resistant but it’s a good idea to avoid positioning them where the wind will catch them, and you will need to wipe them clean from time to time in order to ensure optimum visibility.

Buyers Guide

In general, recommended speed limits depend on the size of the area in which vehicles are moving, so a small yard would have a 5mph limit but a large car park may allow speeds up to 20mph. Your local traffic department can provide you with helpful advice on the safety issues involved. It’s preferable to have a lower limit where pedestrians are going to be spending a lot of time in the same area – for instance, if they are unloading goods there – or if heavy vehicles are likely to be present.

Our pedestrian crossing signs make it easy for you to mark out areas for crossings, and alert drivers to extra risks in these areas. It’s a good idea to use paint or high visibility tape in addition to signs, to mark the exact position of the crossing.

Remember that if you are signposting a thoroughfare, you will need enough speed limit signs for drivers going in both directions to be able to see them. Our signs are a practical, affordable choice and designed to be long-lasting, so why not buy those you need today?
