Grand Haven Plastics receives recognition for their Safety Smart Delineator

Better Roads Magazine has identified the Safety Smart Delineator which is manufactured by Grand Haven Plastics, as one of the 50 most important new products for 2007.

The Top 50 products were selected from a field of over 600 new products introduced to the highway and bridge industry this past year.

Earlier this year, Grand Haven Plastics was awarded Second Place for New Product Innovation by the American Traffic Safety Services Association at their annual conference in San Antonio, TX.

The Safety Smart Delineator is three-part injection molded post with a 3"x 8.375" reflective sheeting attached at the top. It is intended to replace the current metal posts with reflective buttons that are used along highways and exit ramps.

The Safety Smart Delineator features a shear pin that breaks when impacted, thereby causing minimal damage to the delineator post or the vehicle. The shear pins require no special tools, equipment or training to replace and cost only $0.28 each, making the delineators very economical to use.

The Safety Smart Delineator is currently approved by seven State Department of Transportations including Michigan, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Maine, Maryland and New York. The Delineator is also being used by several Toll Road Authorities including: Colorado E-470, New Jersey Garden State Parkway, New York Thruway Authority and the Kansas Turnpike Authority.
