Carmanah Awarded Fluorescent Sign Replacement Project in California

Tuesday, July 4, 2006

Carmanah's Solar LED Lighting Group has been contracted by the City of Roseville in the state of California to supply an additional 19 units of its Model R409 LED edge-lit street-name signs. These signs will be installed at various intersections in the downtown corridor, as part of The Downtown Roseville Visioning Project that was initiated in 1999. This order follows previous orders in 2005. Carmanah also assisted in the development of the City Logo for use on the illuminated street-name signs.

In addition to being attracted to the slim-look of Carmanah's LED edge-lit street signs that help contribute to the aesthetically pleasing downtown décor, it was most appealing to the City that Carmanah's signs save on maintenance and energy costs for The Downtown Roseville Visioning Project.

Carmanah's LED Edge-Lit technology provides a rugged, no maintenance solution for internally illuminated street-name signs and other traffic signs. Designed with high-flux, ultra-bright LEDs, Carmanah's LED Edge-Lit signs will operate maintenance-free for over 50,000 hours, with no bulbs or ballasts to replace.

Carmanah's edge-lit technology is extremely energy efficient and is ideal for traffic sign applications because it provides ultra-bright, uniform illumination of the sign.

With more than 250,000 installations, Carmanah is a world leader in solar-powered LED lighting and solar-power solutions. For more information on the R409 or Carmanah's other unique LED traffic products, visit www.roadlights.com or contact Carmanah's Roadway Division at:
