Carmanah Supplies Solar LED Road Beacons to USAF Base in the Middle East

Thursday, July 14, 2005

Carmanah has been contracted by the USAF to supply two of Carmanah's R820C solar-powered LED, push button activated crosswalk warning beacons and two R247 solar-powered LED flashing beacons for installation at a Middle East location.

These solar-powered LED flashing beacons will be installed outside the Air Base's fire station in a heavy pedestrian traffic area. The Carmanah roadway beacons will be equipped with road signs and will act as a warning system to alert aircrafts and vehicles to stop in the event of a fire on the air base. With limited access to hard-wired power, Carmanah's solar-powered LED roadway beacons are an ideal solution for this application.

This USAF Air Base is already familiar with Carmanah's solar-powered LED lighting technology, as it has been operating with more than 800 of the company's airfield lights for taxiway and runway operations.

Known for their reliability, Carmanah's solar powered LED lighting products eliminate the need for trenching and cabling, making the installation simple and cost-effective. Carmanah's Model R247 and R820C solar-powered LED flashing beacons operate 24 hours per day annually, yet require no maintenance or servicing for up to five years.
