In this demonstration, you’ll see how elevated seating positions impact sign visibility and how higher-performing sign sheeting can help.
Traffic sign fabrication and orientation also matter in creating signs that reflect from different angles.

For non-critical signs and temporary traffic control applications, 3M™ Advanced Flexible Engineer Grade Reflective Sheeting Series 7300 is the flexible and compatible sheeting you’ve been looking for.
Its retroreflectivity meets ASTM D4956 Type I for non-critical street and road signs, and its bright white colour makes it highly visible and ideal for eye-catching graphics.
DG³ sheeting is our top-of-the-line reflective sign sheeting. With nearly twice the reflectivity of our lower-grade signage material, 3M™ Diamond Grade Sheeting helps create more visible signs, and more visible signs have been shown to cut nighttime accidents by up to 46%.*
Learn more about 3M™ Diamond Grade™ DG³ and how it compares to other sheeting types on our next page.
