Solar Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons: Key Factors for Reliable Performance
WHITEPAPER - As demand for Solar RRFBs continues to grow, it is important to consider the key factors that ensure reliable performance when specifying systems for projects and bids. Specifications sometimes focus on certain materials and size, instead of specifying how many pedestrian actuations the system must support each day (referred to as operating capacity).
Walkable Streets, The Way of the Future
WHITEPAPER - A walkable community is a sustainable community. But the benefits reach beyond a city’s future population growth. Improved economic vibrancy, a sense of vitality and connectivity, and the enhanced health and well-being of citizens are all direct and immediate results of improving a community’s walkability.
