Embedded with the same high-intensity LEDs used in our best-selling Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFB), our engineered LED enhanced sign components are made from sturdy, UV-resistant polycarbonate then third-party tested for durability and reliability. Efficient and customizable, LED enhanced flashing signs can be used as an alternative or in combination with beacons to increase rates of driver compliance on roadways with variable speed limits, midblock crosswalks, and/or unsignalized intersections in school zones. LED enhanced signs are a cost-effective safety countermeasure proven to reduce vehicle speeds and change driving behaviors.
Our intelligent energy management system (EMS) enables peak efficiency in a fully integrated, NEMA 3R, weather-proof enclosure. Our EMS comes equipped with simple software for easy calendar programming, and a manual override switch for local control. Plus, operators have the option to add StreetHub connectivity, enabling remote calendar programming and configuration. Our LED enhanced signs for school zones can also incorporate encrypted, wireless radio technology between units for easier, faster multi-unit programming.
