Rear Marker Plate Cat 34 Class 400 Reflective
Do not overtake Rear Marker Plate Cat 34 Class 400 Reflective 400mm x 300mm.
Importantly, These are the new Rear markers for heavy vehicles. One Cat34A coupled with, Cat 34B. New for 2021, these 400mm high Markers have the ‘Do not overtake Turning Vehicle’ wording on both sides. Consequently, this conveys the message easier. Indeed, when you think about it, long vehicles and combinations cut across a corner for left or right turns. Some intersections are worse than others. Therefore, having the DNOTV text on both sides, makes sense.
What is class 400
Class 400 is class 1W reflective sheeting. Confused? Simply put, there are 2 main reflectives in the sign making business. Class 1 and Class 2. Firstly, Class 1W is used on all your road signs etc. Secondly, Class 2 is the original reflective material (like your vehicle number plate). There is an article HERE. Also, another article HERE Consequently, because of class 2 colours fading fast, and reflectability was low, Class 1 (class 400) was selected.
What is legal for Heavy vehicle rear markers
Indeed, It is forbidden to sell or fit class 2 reflective rear do not overtake turning vehicle markers now. Fitting class 2 rear do not overtake markers in 2021 will not comply to Australian Standards. Heavy vehicles and trailers with existing class 2 markers can keep them until they fade or get damaged. Of course, then, they must be replaced with the new reflective markers and new sizes.
