Solar Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon
MUTCD Compliant Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon a Stand-Out Solution
Improve driver yield rates in a flash. The Carmanah R920-E Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) improves compliance at uncontrolled crossings, such as mid-block crosswalks and trail crossings. This user-activated, solar-powered flashing beacon is highly visible thanks to its irregular flash pattern (WW+S), which helps pedestrians and cyclists be seen in the daytime or at night, in any weather and any setting. The battery, energy management system, and solar panel are contained in one unit, making the R920-E an easy-to-install, self-contained solution. It requires no trenching, cabling, or in-ground wiring, and it’s built to last: durable and dependable, this product comes with a 5-year warranty for peace of mind.
The RRFB has interim approval in the Federal Highway Administration’s Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), making this an approved product across the United States, as well as other regions including Canada and overseas. Read about IA-21.
FAST FACT: FHWA Research shows that RRFBs raise driver yield rates up to as high as 96%.
