Colorimetric and retroreflective properties as well as luminance of transilluminated illuminated portions are specified taking into account CIE recommendations.
Structural requirements for TTBs include performance under static and dynamic loading.
Provision is made for safety in use, including vehicle impact.
Devices of similar function, but without transillumination or less than 600 mm in height, are not covered.
