Delineator posts are meant to be impact resistant, but how resistant they are depends on the brand.  I am not going to go into brands in this post, but some can take impacts up to 60 MPH+ and still be okay.  Delineator posts can come with bases, with stakes that go into the ground or pavement (though pre-made holes are necessary to stick delineators into pavement or a hard surface.

delineator posts, delineator post, traffic tubes, construction postsThere are lots of types of delineator posts out there, so before you choose your post too fast, check out some of the options available.  There are “T-top” delineators” and “open top” delineators, the t-top ones are good because you can grab them easier at the top, and the open top ones are just flat on the top and more traditional.  Industry heights are roughly; 18″, 28″, 36″, 39″ and 42″.

Reflective tape is very common on these, usually two 3 or 4″ bands.  Posts usually come in orange, yellow or white, and switching between colors is not going to mean ordering a large quantity.  Posts are usually designed with a lip that comes out at the bottom so it stands alone, but bases are always a good idea – just look out for those shipping costs!
