Somerford Equipment has introduced a new LED Traffic Control Arrow unit which provides an affordable, effective safety solution for contractors. It provides the optimum specification for new vehicle builds with the option of retrofitting to existing fleets. With 13 amber LED lamps, each producing 2400 cd, it is visible in typical road conditions at more than 500 metres.
Fully Chapter 8 compliant warnings are displayed including flashing ‘keep left/keep right’’ arrows or alternately flashing four corner lamps. The lights automatically dim in ambient conditions to extend the operational life and reduce glare for drivers.
Supplied as standard with a 20 metre supply lead, the unit comes with its own easy-to-use controller for in-cab mounting. Alternatively, it can be integrated into a single function in-cab control panel to operate and monitor all plant functions, worklights and warning displays.
The unit has a clamshell design with heavy duty stainless steel hinges allowing the display unit to swing open for optimum maintenance access. The LED lamps in the 98 x 98cm display have an estimated lifespan of 10 years, providing a low cost of ownership in terms of replacement cost and maintenance resource. Manufactured using powder coated aluminium, the unit has a high rust resistance and is both lightweight and durable. This translates into a lower gross vehicle weight to deliver long term fuel efficiencies across your fleet.
The unit can be supplied in 12 volt or 24 volt options and is available as a fixed rear display panel or motorised for roof mounting to lay flat when not in use.
