Our maintenance-free road signs use steel electroluminescent technology powered by solar cells to offer a brighter, more weather-proof hazard alert in dark, dusty or low visibility areas.
Advantages of Steel Electroluminescent road signs
The simplicity of the technology makes it perfectly suited for use in remote locations, on mine sites and in road works areas. They provide a safe, evenly lit and highly visible sign surface, while reducing light spillage and pollution and also reducing the clutter associated with conventionally over-lit signs.
Our complete range of road signs is compatible with passive safety poles and fixtures. Reduction in equipment on the pole is also a significant safety improvement in the event of a collision.
