Carmanah’s Solar LED Lighting Division has received an order for solar powered 24-hour dual flashing beacons for installation on Pennsylvania turnpikes. Received through Carmanah’s authorized distributor Signal Control Products, the order will provide dual flashing beacons for installation on ramp entrances throughout the state. The beacons will alert motorists to merging traffic on busy state roadways.
Using a combination of solar power and LED (light emitting diode) technology, Carmanah’s solar powered dual flashing beacons emit a constant 55 flashes per minute and offer user-adjustable brightness settings.
The beacons also feature an intelligent operating system that ensures continuous light output regardless of environmental conditions. This feature is of particular importance in Pennsylvania where average winter temperatures hover around 33.7 F (.5 C) and average snowfall is about 40 inches (101 cm).
Quick and easy to install on existing sign posts, Carmanah’s dual flashing beacons are an easy and effective way to improve safety for motorists merging onto busy highways. Requiring no trenching or wiring, no scheduled maintenance for up to five years, and no ongoing electrical bills, Carmanah’s dual flashing beacons offer considerable value and cost-saving benefits.
