How solar LED traffic signs can make your city safer

Your community’s safety is your number one priority. There’s no denying the roles roadways and driving play in that equation — road accidents are the leading cause of death among people aged one to 54 in the United States.

Solar LED traffic signs represent the next generation of road safety, increasing the visibility of all-important traffic control signs — even in poor weather conditions. Here’s what you need to know about solar traffic signs.

What are LED traffic signs?

LED traffic signs are traffic control signs illuminated by LED lights. The lights perform two essential tasks:

  • First, they draw attention to the sign itself. Whether the lights are stagnant or flashing, the motorist is, therefore, less likely to miss a sign altogether.
  • Second, they improve the legibility of the sign. Even though quality traffic control signs are crafted from reflective materials, the addition of LED lights further enhances drivers’ and pedestrians’ ability to read the sign, even when conditions are poor.
  • LED traffic signs might sound like a logistical nightmare, but in reality, maintenance is fairly minimal. LED lights are incredibly energy-efficient, with an average lifespan of 50,000 hours. The estimated lifespan of our lights is twice that — 100,000 hours.

    In addition, LED traffic signs can be powered by AC power or renewable solar energy — the latter can help keep your costs down without compromising safety.

    What kinds of signs benefit from LED lights?

    LED signs come in many compliant designs serving almost every function imaginable. At Dornbos Sign & Safety, we offer a comprehensive collection of US-made LED traffic signs, including:

  • LED stop signs
  • LED speed limit signs
  • LED railroad signs
  • LED caution and yield signs
  • MUTCD and FHWA compliant traffic control signs
  • In addition to the above, our LED sign range extends to bicycle, pedestrian, and school-related signs, ensuring every person on the road — whether driving, walking, or cycling — stays safe.

    We also create custom LED signs if you can’t see what you’re looking for. To find out more, give us a call on 800.922.0029.

    What are the benefits of solar LED signs?

    The benefits of solar LED signs are far-reaching, improving safety, minimizing costs, and boosting reliability.

    Let’s take a quick look at some of the advantages of switching to solar-powered LED traffic signs:

  • Increased visibility. Our LED traffic signs are nearly impossible to miss, featuring flashing LED lights and 3M Diamond Grade Reflective sheeting. This helps improve the safety of high-traffic areas and zones with many pedestrians, such as schools and bus stops.
  • Safety whatever the weather. LED lights cut through dimly lit, foggy, rainy, and snowy conditions.
  • Intelligent warning systems. Our LED signs feature a leading-edge Intelligent Warning System (IWS), enabling you to control operation through timers and push-button controls.
  • Let’s make your city or county safer
