Solar LED Solutions

BlinkerBeacon™ Solar Flashing LED Beacon

Recent LED improvement, new regulations for 12" lenses, and solar power have made beacons even more effective and more versatile. TAPCO's new BlinkerBeacon LED beacon incorporates these new features at a low cost-effective price. 

Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacon

The RRFB system produces the highest yielding rate of all traffic control devices not featuring a red display, and is four times more effective than the common standard round beacon.



Solar School Crossing 

School zone BlinkerSign systems can be activated using solar power and wireless technology offering a low cost, low labor option. If you add the time clock controller option, signs can be programmed to flash a specified times, typically during morning student drop-offs, afternoon student pickups, and during special events. 

BlinkerStop® Flashing LED STOP 

BlinkerStop® LED STOP signs provide greater awareness for new, high-risk and high-incidence intersections where static signs are ineffective.



Wrong-Way Solutions

Considered the most serious type of traffic collision because of their head-on nature, wrong-way driving accidents claim an average of 360 lives each year on United States roadways – often caused by impaired or confused drivers. As wrong-way accidents become more commonplace, traffic professionals have been tasked with preventing these deadly collisions.
