TJ Steel is a steel merchant with a twist. TJ Steel supply a wide range of steel products to the Manufacturing and Construction Industries. Always looking for opportunities, a gap in the market was seen for a road sign bracket that would be durable, cost effective and easy to install.
TJ Steel chose to work with Elite Polymers to help develop the road sign bracket. A design brief was given and the drawings were based around this. Once given the approval, tooling was made and testing begun.
A delicate balance was required of a material that was soft enough to provide the flexibility required and rigidity to hold the fixings. After some field trials with different materials a suitable material was sourced that complies with all the performance requirements.
The product has been launched and has received really positive feedback by customers and installers of the product and is currently being used by Downer to service the Wellington City area.
