Timer Controlled Beacons

Designed for low speed roadways where pedestrians are present, and to warn vehicular traffic they are entering an area requiring extra caution. The 7 day timer system can be activated at certain times of the day to emphasize its effectiveness.

The Solar School Zone only utilizes the most up to date solar and electronics to maintain power levels thru rain, shine, sleet, or snow

LED technology increases life expectancy of the beacon and also burns less energy than conventional bulbs

Meets MUTCD (Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices)

The 7 day Programmable timer module allows you to program in advance what times the beacons will be activated.

The system fits into Safe Routes to School (SRTS) infrastructure funding models
