The Carmanah R829 Series solar flashing school zone beacons are designed to reduce vehicle speeds in school zones. Carmanah offers two models, the R829C ( a compact, 10 watt panel) and the R829 (20 watt panel). These solar flashing school zone beacons can be added to existing school zone speed limit signage with just a wrench and screwdriver making installation fast and simple. Eliminating the need for electrical grid connections, the beacons reduce installation and long-term operating costs. Carmanah School Zone Flashing Beacons can also be pre-programmed to flash according to the peak traffic times of individual school zones.
