Barricades are the sturdy work horses on the road, helping traffic to avoid hazards and protecting roadway workers.

Flexible signs, traffic cones and tubular posts have some of the toughest jobs on the road. Impact from morotists and the constant set-up, take-down and being tossed in the vehicle for the next job site make for rough conditions. All the while, they must maintain visibility in order to protect the life of that roadway worker doing his job just metres away.
That's why ORAFOL offers its ORALITE® line of high performance materials of all grades for applications including cone collars, tubular posts and flexible roll up signs.

To enhance visibility and ensure safety across the globe, laws require vehicles in the transportation industry to be marked with conspicuity material.
ORAFOL is with our leading conspicuity brand ORALITE® the OEM preferred conspicuity provider because of the durability, performance, and comprehensive warranty of our products. The microprismatic technology has the longest sight detection distance in the industry with the highest nighttime reflectivity performance, and our conspicuity material is remarkably easy to install, resulting in minimal labour costs.
The vehicle conspicuity materials in the ORAFOL range are rugged, single layer contructed, resist edge lift, and they are impact resistant.
ORAFOL offers a robust range of tapes for all vehicle applications, including ECE 104 tapes, and livery films for all types of commercial and EMS vehicles.
Trucks and Trailers
ORALITE® VC 104+ is the preferred choice by most fleets when it comes to conspicuity markings, due to the product construction which is just simply ideal for this application. The thin single layer construction means that there is no edge sealing needed, and no risk of any water or dirt ingress causing discolouration of the tape. It is easy to apply, and you can apply it over rivets very easily. Easy application means that your vehicle is quickly back on the road again - where it should be.
For ECE 104, the ORAFOL product range includes both marking tapes class C and graphics film class E. Other products within the vehicle range include reflective and fluorescent films for rear marker plates, license plate material, and truck flags.
Due to increased traffic volumes and the need to react to incidents quickly, it is vitally important to ensure that emergency service vehicles can be easily seen both night and day. Safety of police officers travelling to and from an incident, and at the scene of an incident, is also of paramount importance.
The retroreflective livery films from ORAFOL are highly visible at a distance of more than 500 metres away and greatly increase vehicle visibility during poor weather conditions such as rain and fog.
Our product range includes both glass bead and microprismatic materials in all grades.
Fluorescent colours ensure conspicuity during the day and at dusk and dawn. Most of the ORALITE® livery films do not need edge sealing, which allows quick turn-around times after damage repair. Eliminating the quality risks connected with edge sealing, they will maintain the aesthetics of the vehicle long after application.
The preferred choice for numerous police forces throughout Europe.
