The Benefits of Solar LED Signs

The Benefits of Solar LED Signs

11th Mar 2021

What are solar LED signs exactly? They're signs outfitted with multiple light-emitting diodes (LED) around their border, which are powered by the rays of the sun. With their flashing LEDs, these signs are making crosswalks and intersections across the country a safer place to be.

There are several unique benefits to using these solar-powered signs that you simply can't get from the average stock sign. This includes their:

High Visibility

If you need highly visible traffic signs, look no further than solar LED lights. Here at Dornbos, our signs are already very visible, as they have 3M Diamond Grade Reflective sheeting. However, LED lights increase this visibility multiple times over.

With a flash rate of about 50-60 flashes per minute, these solar LED signs are impossible to miss, no matter the weather or time of day. This makes them a popular choice in areas with lots of pedestrians, such as school zones and bus stops.


Intelligent Warning System

Dornbos' solar LED signs come with a state-of-the-art Intelligent Warning System (IWS). This system allows you to control how your individual LED signs operate through optional timers and push-button controls.

However, you can also customize the IWS of your sign when you order from us. We currently offer a wide variety of sizes, as well as two options for how often your sign will flash — a 24/7 Flash and a Dusk-to- Dawn Sensor, which programs your sign to flash from dusk until dawn.


Zero Carbon Footprint

Another major benefit of solar LED signs is that they have zero carbon footprint. They rely entirely on the sun for power, which is just about the most reliable and eco-friendly power source on the planet.

They require no ungrounded power supply, which is incredibly convenient for more rural communities. They can be placed anywhere that's exposed to sunlight, even if it's miles away from the nearest town.



Solar LED signs are famously reliable, especially when you order from Dornbos Sign and Safety. So long as you place them in an area that's not obscured from the sun, you can count on these signs to be vibrant and upright 24/7. In fact, the actual life expectancy of our individual LED lights is over 100,000 hours, which equates to well over a decade of constant use.

This reliability extends to the actual build of the sign itself. Our signs are made in America using steel and other premium materials. We also include our quality Tufnut security mounting hardware with every LED sign purchase to ensure that your sign stays in place, even during harsh weather conditions.
