These 10.75" x 10.75" orange and black placards conform to the UN system and 49 CFR. They display both the division number and compatibility group letter and are available in four diffferent materials. All placards (except the self-adhesive ones) require a suitable placard holder when used on a vehicle (see item # 03171). DOT regulations require four placards per vehicle (front, back and both sides); these are sold here individually so be sure to order the right number for your needs.
Also be sure to check out the Placard Systems (item # 03090) which let you complete your own placard.
|Tagboard||Economical 1.75 lb polycoated tagboard is weather-resistant and exceeds DOT's 30 day weather requirement.|
|Self-adhesive vinyl||Self-adhesive vinyl may be applied directly to your vehicle. It is high gloss and durable with an average outdoor durability of 8 to 10 years. It is a permanent material and does not require a placard holder.|
|Fiberglass||Premium Fiberglass has the graphics permanently embedded in the sign panel and is the best choice for severe environments with 15 to 25 years of outdoor durability.|
|Magnetic||Magnetic placards are ideal for vehicles that do not have permanently mounted placard holders and where you need to change the placarding frequently based on the type of material being transported.|
