Grand Haven Plastics Inc., Grand Haven, Mich., has introduced a breakaway delineator called the Safety Smart Delineator (Circle 908).
The Safety Smart Delineator consists of three main injection-molded components:
- The post is made from up to 50% recycled polypropylene;
- The stake is made from up to 50% recycled Xenoy; and
- The shear pin is injection-molded using a glass-filled nylon material.
Upon impact, the only component that needs to be replaced is the shear pin. No special tools, equipment or training is needed to replace the shear pin. The post is tethered to the stake to prevent it from becoming a projectile when it is hit.
