Solar Road MarkerSolar Road Marker

Overview

The Solar Road Marker is a solar-powered light and reflector that flashes at night to mark the edge or path of a road, walkway or area. Also called a solar road stud, solar pavement marker, or solar cat eye. It is ideal for use on roadways, walkways, commercial areas, isolated areas, hazardous areas, and stand-alone traffic locations.

The Light Emitting Diode (LED) light provides better marking in low-light conditions than does a conventional reflective marker, especially in places where the light from the headlight beam does not reflect back from the reflector to the driver. The Solar Road Marker has a battery for powering the lamp when the sun is not shining, such as during nighttime or cloudy weather.

Benefits

The Solar Road Marker:

Solar Road Marker
  • Provides clear marking of the road edge and direction for drivers at night and during bad weather conditions (fog, rain)
  • Augments painted road markings which on wet roads reflect street lights and vehicle lights and make the road markings unseeable or confusing
  • Improves the drivers ability to steer the vehicle along dark areas, curved roads, abrupt grades, or dangerous sections of road.
  • Increases the effective warning distance of hazards for drivers.
  • Attracts driver attention to reduce speed, watch for hazards, and follow the lane.
  • Reduces driver fatigue while driving at night on long, monotonous, or dark roads.
  • Prevents accidents and injuries caused by driving out of the lane or off the road, or driving into hidden or hard-to-see intersections.
  • Is a cost-effective, easy-to-install and no-maintenance marker light.

Features

The Solar Road Marker has:

Installation

The Solar Road Marker is spaced apart depending on the speed of the vehicle and abruptness of the hazard.

Solar Road Marker
  • Highways and Expressways: 5-6 meters (16-20 feet) apart
  • Dangerous Entrances and Exits: 2-3 meters (6-10 feet) apart
  • Access or Exit ways for Hospitals, Parking Lots, walkways, etc.: 0.5-2.0 meters (2-6 feet) apart
  • Not suitable for installation in tunnels, inside buildings, under bridges, or in places where there is no sunlight.
