Warning Triangle Sign
The invention relates to road signal technology, particularly to provisional signalling appliances, which have to be carried in a vehicle and be placed on a thorough-fare part of a road for signalling in daytime and nighttime the presence of a vehicle that has come to a halt. The "advance-warning triangle" sign is formed as a tripod, which in its unfolded state forms a pyramid with ribs connected to each other at least by their upper ends and framed by an elastic sheath formed as light-reflecting elastic ribbons, which in the unfolded state of the pyramid form traffic signs of a triangular shape. The ribs form telescopic legs with a hinged connection to each other. For a fixation of the completely unfolded legs it is provided with a fixing strut. The light-reflecting elastic ribbons are attached to the legs on two lateral sides and form a red polymer cloth rim consisting of an outer light-reflecting band and an inner fluorescent band, surrounding a hollow centre on three sides and having the shape of concentric equilateral triangles. On the front side, rails are attached to the legs which can be bent in a vertical plane perpendicular to the plane of the road, the rails being attached to the legs by their lower portion and connected to each other by their upper ends, at their upper portion the rails are connected to the legs by a fixing mechanism. An elastic polymer cloth strip is attached to the rails, formed as a red rim consisting of an outer light-reflecting band and an inner fluorescent band, surrounding the hollow centre on three sides and having the shape of concentric equilateral triangles. The "advance-warning triangle" sign is provided with a fixing strut for a fixation of the completely unfolded legs. The foldable tripod is manufactured from light metal, for instance aluminium, or polymer, or a combination of light metal and polymer. The legs are covered with light porous rubberised material on the outside. The legs of the foldable tripod are also covered with light-reflecting material. The light-reflecting band is an elastic high-intensive light-reflecting polymer membrane with a cellular (for instance "honeycomb") structure. The legs of the foldable tripod are provided with support stands at their lower portion.
