Matters not covered by this standard:
a)   sign gantry and cantilever structures;
b)   signs with discontinuous messages, e.g. using light emitting diodes (LED), or fibre optics;
c)   variable message signs;

This document specifies requirements and test methods for new Variable Message Signs (VMS).
VMS comprise two types, continuous and discontinuous signs:
- continuous signs are those that are similar to fixed signs, the only difference being that by some
electro-mechanical means they can show various messages.
NOTE 1 For example rotating prism signs, roller blinds.
- discontinuous signs create messages using individual elements that can be in one of two states (or more)
and can thereby create various messages on the same sign face.
NOTE 2 For example fibre optic signs, LED signs.
This document covers the performance requirements for Variable Message Signs used for the instruction and
guidance of road users on public and private land, including tunnels. In this document a number of different
performance requirements (visual performance, EMC, environmental performance, etc) are covered, as well
as durability.
The EMC, safety and environmental requirements for both types of VMS are included in this document
together with the visual performance for the discontinuous types VMS.
The visual performance for continuous signs and discontinuous signs which are externally illuminated is
covered by EN 12899-1.
This document defines performance limits and a range of performance classes for both sign assemblies
without vertical support and assemblies complete with vertical support.
Not covered by this document are:
a) sign gantries, cantilevers and foundations;
b) portable and temporary VMS;
c) signal heads;
d) sizes and shapes of VMS messages;
e) control units and monitoring units unless inside the test module.

This part of EN 12899:2001 specifies requirements for new fixed signs :
¾ non-retroreflective and retroreflective fixed signs ;
¾ non-retroreflective and retroreflective fixed signs when they are illuminated at night by external lighting luminaires ; and
¾ transilluminated signs.
The main intended use of fixed signs is for the instruction and guidance of road users on public and private land.
It defines performance limits and a range of performance classes for both sign assemblies without vertical supports and assemblies complete with vertical supports, as well as sign faces and supporting substrates, sign fixings and supports and external lighting luminaires.
Colorimetric and retroreflective properties as well as the luminance are specified. The retroreflective properties are in respect of materials based on the use of glass bead technology only. Structural requirements for signs and sign supports include performance under static and dynamic loading.
It also defines performance levels to be maintained after natural weathering exposure.
NOTE   Where tests for extremely low temperatures are required they should be in accordance with the customer's requirements.
