Regulated sign sheeting selection made easy

While most Canadian provinces and territories follow the national sign conventions, as outlined in the “Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Canada,” each jurisdiction may have additional guidelines and standards, which should be the guiding documents for those involved in designing or fabricating regulated signs. This reference guide serves to assist with quick identification and selection of the appropriate 3M™ Retroreflective Sheeting conforming to the ASTM International standard D4956 and Quebec Norme 14101 standard.
