Manufacturer of LED integrated traffic control systems TWM has announced that it has extended its range of road safety crossing equipment with the patented DayBright PLUS.
TWM described the new road beacon as a super bright LED post top or mid-post beacon solution that is designed to give drivers and pedestrians enhanced visibility of pedestrian crossings.
DayBright Plus is designed to emit exceptional daylight illumination in all conditions especially on bright sunny days, or poor weather conditions. Courtesy of a dynamic photocell, it is then able to adapt to its surrounding light in order to reduce glare if required.
The viewing angle of each halo can be commissioned to suit the layout of the road eliminating any directional blind spots. The head design is said to be the only product of its kind that can be adjusted to suit both traffic flows where there is a radius or bend in the road.
The DayBright solution can be used to easily upgrade any current stock of traditional Belisha beacons on the network. A further option of including the patented, LED Retrofit strips, allows the client to upgrade to a fully illuminated crossing with enhanced head and posts, without the need for any costly civil works or electrical connection charges.
Commenting on the development of DayBright PLUS Kevin Marshall Company Director at TWM explained, ‘Traditionally, internally illuminated zebra crossing poles offer little or no conspicuous value as they are only truly effective during the hours of darkness, with daytime visibility being virtually non-existent. However, thanks to the DayBright PLUS LED beacon and LED illuminated white bands, exceptional enhancement to the visibility of the crossing can now be provided.’
‘We launched this LED zebra crossing beacon as a testament to our passion for developing equipment that brings enhanced road safety to both drivers and pedestrians,’ added Marshall.
