The Shire GroundFill Base removes the need for traditional concrete footings.  Traditionally to install speed signs or low level signage, a 1m3 hole is dug out, the spoil is carried away (often treated as contaminated waste) and the hole is filled with concrete.  In areas that are difficult to access, or where multiple signs are being installed, this can quickly become an expensive, labour intensive option.  The GroundFill Base still requires a hole to be dug out, but once the product is placed in the ground, the spoil is placed back inside the hole.  The patented structural supports provide lateral stability against forces up to 6kN (the equivalent of very high winds acting upon a 1m x 1m sign). They are installed with hand held equipment, recyclable and reusable.
