Carmanah Supplies Two California Cities with LED Street-Name Signs

Monday, June 19, 2006

Carmanah has received an order from two cities in northern California for 19 units of its proprietary Model R409 edge-lit LED street name signs.

Carmanah's LED edge-lit signs are gaining popularity among cities in California, and have established an excellent reputation for their maintenance-free operation, ease of installation, and bright, even illumination. The ultra-thin frame design is becoming popular for both new signal projects as well as signal upgrades.

About the R409 edge-Lit LED Street Name Sign

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.
