1. Will a surface mount post fit into a soil anchor base and vice-versa? TOP

It depends.

Standard Safe-Hit surface mount posts and soil anchored posts cannot be interchanged. They are slightly different in height, and the surface mount post is fabricated to enable a pin to run through it. The standard Safe-Hit surface mount post, however, is the same type of post used for the portable Safe-Hit base (see Safe-Hit Flexible Signs).

The Dura-Post product is indeed interchangeable between its soil anchor and surface mount base. The surface mount base uses a compression pin to hold the Dura-Post in place, whereas the soil anchor uses a bolt and nut.

RubberTough posts are not interchangeable between its soil anchor, surface mount base or portable mat.

 

 

2. Will all surface mount posts fit into all Safe-Hit surface mount bases?

Yes. All Safe-Hit surface mount posts will fit into any Safe-Hit surface mount base.

 

 

3. Will all soil anchor posts fit into all Safe-Hit soil anchors?    

Yes. All Safe-Hit soil anchor posts will fit into any Safe-Hit soil anchor.

 

 

4. Where are Safe-Hit products manufactured?

6. Is there a distributor in my area?

Safe-Hit has numerous local and international distributors. Call a Safe-Hit customer support representative at
(800) 537-8958 to find your closest distributor, or feel free to query through our online form.

 

 

7. Are your delineators reboundable?

All Safe-Hit delineators and posts are successfully tested to rebound from impacts and rollovers in accordance with NTPEP test requirements.

The Dura-Post has been tested to withstand well over 200 impacts and rollovers at 60 mph!

 

 

8. How warm should a concrete or asphalt surface be for an epoxy application?

For optimum performance, the recommended installation temperature is 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 degrees Celsius) or above. If weather conditions are colder than a minimum installation temperature of 45 degrees Fahrenheit (7.2 degrees Celsius), a blowtorch can be used to warm the asphalt or concrete surface.

 

 

9. Why have my white posts which have been in storage turned pink?

Due to the ultraviolet (UV) inhibitors in our post's polyethylene composition, posts kept in storage and in dark conditions will exhibit a change in color shade from white to pink. Once these posts are installed and exposed to sunlight, their colors will revert back to white.

 

 

10. Do the delineator posts come with caps?

All multi-purpose Safe-Hit posts come capped. Dura-Post delineators do not come capped, but caps can be requested during the order process.

 

 

11. When shipped, how many posts and bases come in a box?

Standard Safe-Hit posts ship 25 to a box, and Dura-Posts ship 20 to a box.

 

 

12. Is freight included in my shipment?

No, but we utilize a prepaid and add program where we charge you the exact cost for shipping.

 

 

13. What shipping companies do you use?

For orders of 16 boxes or fewer, shipments are sent via UPS. For orders of 17 boxes or more, a standard commercial freightliner is used.
