About R247 Series Solar 24 Hour Flashing Beacon


R247 Series Solar 24 Hour Flashing Beacon

Carmanah’s R247 Series 24-hour solar flashing beacons are designed to bring added visibility to warning and stop signs.  These beacons deliver a high-intensity continuous flash output that increases conspicuity of problematic stop signs, new road signage, construction and work zone signage. With easy retrofit onto existing sign hardware, our 24-hour flashing beacons can be easily moved to meet changing needs on roadways and work sites. With no electrical grid connections, our beacons can be installed virtually anywhere driver awareness is an issue, including rural locations without access to power and areas where trenching or wiring is cost-prohibitive.
