Simmonsigns played a part in one of the defining moments of the London 2012 Olympics - the road cycle events that saw an estimated one million spectators lining the route.
The road cycling events took place on the first weekend of the Games and helped to set the tone for what is almost universally acclaimed to be the most successful Olympics of modern times.
In the lead up to London 2012, Simmonsigns provided a range of pre-fabricated illuminated traffic island solutions along parts of the route.
These were important to the successful staging of the road races, as they are capable of being quickly and easily removed to allow the cyclists to pass and swiftly put back in place later so that busy London road traffic could continue to flow safely.
The company's innovative solutions also form part of the London 2012 legacy as the bollards will continue to act as an important road safety measure on the city's streets for years to come.
Shropshire-based Simmonsigns is a specialist and innovative supplier of high quality products and solutions backed by expertise gained over 27 years. Dedicated to the design, manufacture and supply of traffic engineering and lighting products to the highest specification, the company manufactures and supplies from it purpose-built UK manufacturing capability.
By carrying out continuous in-house research and design as well as forging links with other manufacturers Simmonsigns continues to develop their product range to meet the ever changing face of traffic engineering.
The pre-fabricated concrete range of traffic islands used for the cycle route come in standard sizes to include 1200mm, 1500mm and 1800mm wide, with bespoke sizes also available, and in a range of finishes. The island fixing system can be permanently fixed or fully demountable.
Simmonsigns' range of retro-reflective and illuminated bollards which includes the Simbol, Contour, Weebol Flex, Weebol and Weebol Plus systems complement the islands perfectly allowing them to blend in with the surrounding street furniture.
