Traffic reflector edit

The Irwin Hodson Company is a Portland, Oregon manufacturing company committed to producing products for as-needed market place designs.  With a history of producing stamped product for regional OEMs, our current mission is to mix our patented and other proprietary product with customer designed parts where the investment in tooling makes sense. Competing in the traffic reflector market is possible with the equipment we have implemented for laminating and stamping materials.  While our substrates are typically aluminum materials, Irwin Hodson reflector brackets or associated fastener products can be made of steel as well.

  • Monarch Reflective Device

    Monarch Reflective Device

    The Monarch Butterfly Reflective Device is a guardrail reflector product.  It can be used as a delineator or as a warning device.  Several can be mounted anywhere on the same singular guardrail length with our Universal D bracket, the attachment is used with either mechanical fasteners or two pads of VHB adhesive.  This Monarch is used as a one-way or –two way reflective device and comes with a reflective center piece.   Regardless of straight, curved, or oncoming dead-end roads, the Monarch gives excellent retroreflection.

  • Barrier Traffic Reflector 5.0

    Barrier Traffic Reflector 5.0" Tall

    This product is a rigid traffic safety reflector designed for concrete barrier application as a delineator. It is most effective in traffic areas where extra reflectivity is important. Our choice of reflective material is 3M’s Diamond Grade Cubed sheeting (White or Fl. Yellow), which provides superior angularity of retroreflection while giving a longer effective life.  

     

    The reflective strip is 3.1” wide by 5” high (BTR&BTRL) with a 4” wide x.060” thick aluminum substrate.

    The BTR base is 4” in overall length with slots and 2 holes – 5/16” diameter.

    The BTRL base is 2” in length with one hole and a curved slot.

    Total Reflective surface: 12 square inches (BTR) and 15 square inches (BTRL).

    Weight: 1/6 lb each.

    For product sustainability simply apply another strip of DG3 over the expired sheeting to give this reflector a new life.

    Can be used on guardrail wood post as well.

    Custom colors may be used for markers with special needs (such as a blue color for patrol or official vehicle turnout markers).

    Mounting: can be with mechanical fastener or adhesive.

    Standard box quantity: 50 units

    Optional:  A second reflector blank can be mounted (stacked) behind the front side Reflector in order to give the product more resistance to snow conditions at minimal cost (holes will line up for mounting).

    Optional:  A second strip for the back side that can be added for two-way notification on the median barrier.

  • Circular Disc

    Circular Disc

    The Circular Disc is a delineator. It is intended to be a singular warning device with attachment to non-porous surfaces.  The substrate is aluminum and the sheeting is Diamond Grade.  

     

    The humped section angle is 44 degrees from the flat surface and has 180 degrees of retroreflectivity.

    The hole size is 3/16”.

    The substrate is .025 aluminum and the sheeting is 3M Diamond Grade Cubed, ASTM D4956.

    The install attachment is 3M VHB adhesive and can be installed by riveting or screwing to an existing reflector bracket.

    A typical application would be as a replacement for steel post delineation.

    Sizes available are 2” thru 5” diameter.

    Sheeting:  3M Diamond Grade, choose either white or fluorescent yellow.

  • 11

    11" Barrier Traffic Reflector (11" BTR)

    This reflector is designed for concrete barrier application as a delineator/warning device. It is most effective for traffic where extra reflectivity is important. Examples would be dense fog areas or where there is a hindrance of the view of the road ahead and extra guidance through reflectivity is needed. Others would be radical freeway exits or turnpikes. Our choice of reflective material is 3M’s Diamond Grade Cubed sheeting (White or Fl. Yellow), which provides superior angularity of reflection.  

     

    Optional is a second strip for the back side that can be added for two-way notification on the median barrier. Custom colors may be used for markers with special needs.

    The reflective strip is 3.1” wide by 9”(BTR) to 11”(BTRL) high (overall 11” height) with a  4” wide x.060” thick aluminum substrate.

    The base is 4” (BTR) and 2”(BTRL) in overall length with slots and 2 holes – 5/16” diameter.

    With sufficient quantities the product can be ordered to shorter lengths (9”& 7”).

    For product sustainability simply apply another strip of DG3 over the expired sheeting to give this reflector a new life.

    Total reflective surface:  27 square inches (BTR) and 33 square inches (BTRL) per side.

    Weight:  1/3 lb. each

    Alternatively this product can be used on guardrail posts.

    Standard box quantity:  50 units

    Optional:  A second strip for the back side that can be added for two-way notification on the median barrier. Custom colors may be used for markers with special needs (such as a blue color for patrol or official vehicle turnout markers).
