School Zone Flashing Beacon that can Exceed ITE Intensity

Customize your school zone flashing beacons. When ITE intensity must be met, the Carmanah R829-G School Zone Flashing Beacon can help, with its selection of large solar panels and battery options to help meet ITE intensity, even in shaded locations. The larger solar engine can support both higher intensity LEDs and third-party devices. Prewired with Carmanah’s calendar software or customized with a third-party time clock, these beacons can be preprogrammed up to 500 days in advance for an individual school zone. Solar-powered beacons minimize both installation and long-term operating costs; plus, remote programming decreases on-site maintenance requirements. It’s also built to last: durable and dependable, this product comes with a 5-year warranty for peace of mind.

School zone flashing beacons fit within Safe Routes to School infrastructure funding models, complete streets plans, and state-specific grants for school zone safety improvements.

BE IN THE KNOW: Increasing safety can help encourage students and parents to walk and bike to school. Flashing school zone beacons can reduce speeds in school zones by 5–7 miles per hour, according to this study from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission.
