Glasdon UK have launched a new solar powered highway safety solution.
Unveiled at Traffex 2017, the Solar Signmaster™ is the newest addition to the Glasdon Signmaster™ range of retroreflective self-righting bollards.
This solution is ideal for new and existing traffic islands as it offers increased visibility at night without the direct mains electricity costs.
Passively safe, the bollard and below ground battery chamber are drive-through tested to meet BS EN 12767, achieving 70, NE4. The bollard will self-right and continue to illuminate after impact.
Large 300mm LED sign face with a single light source configuration provides high visibility and is the best on the market for overall uniformity of illuminance and mean luminance combined.
Sealed, domed below ground battery chamber is IP67 rated to protect the batteries and circuit. The bollard itself offers the latest IP56 rated requirement, protecting the internal electrical components from water spray.
John Cookson, Customer Support Manager for Glasdon Highways Team said: “We’ve been working towards the launch for some time, ensuring that the Solar Signmaster™ is a viable and credible solution for use across a variety of applications.
"De-illumination offers authorities a huge opportunity to save direct energy costs. We believe a safe, reliable solar powered solution such as Solar Signmaster™ can address any challenges and deliver savings while retaining the illumination and increased visibility.”
