General Description
Wrong-way, head-on crashes have much higher injury and death rates than other types of accidents. A majority of these collisions occur at night and are caused by impaired, distracted or confused drivers who enter highways going the wrong direction.

Our TS40 series WRONG WAY (R5-1A) and DO NOT ENTER (R5-1) signs employ a set of synchronized high-intensity flashing LEDs that command the attention of errant drivers at exit ramps and other roadways with one-way traffic. The sign LEDs flash once per second, continuously 24/7. Optional activation options include a programmable timer and a photocell for dusk-to-dawn operation.

• Highway exits
• Divided roadways
• One-way streets
• Parking garage exits

Why Our Signs are Better

High Visibility
• Type IX reflective sheeting provides outstanding reflective brightness, day or night.
• High intensity LEDs extend the visibility of the sign under all weather conditions.

Superior Performance
• Low power LED technology reduces system power consumption and operating cost.

Outstanding Durability
• Highway grade .080 aluminum construction provides resistance to corrosion.
• The use of highway grade Type IX sheeting helps to maintain long term reflectivity.
• Stainless steel security fasteners and Tufnut mounting hardware included to keep the sign secure.
• Signs are weatherproof to prevent outside elements from entering the internal casing.

• MUTCD section 2A.07 and 2A.08 compliant.
• High visibility, low power consumption.
• Fast, easy installation, low maintenance.
• Field adjustable LED flashing duration (30 seconds standard).
• Vandal-resistant mounting hardware included.
• Optional battery backup, not affected by local grid power outages, 12 day autonomy (flashing 24/7).

Solar TS40
A solar powered TS40 is available that features off-grid power generation and independent flashing control.

• Solar powered with battery backup, no AC power required.
• MUTCD section 2A.07 and 2A.08 compliant.
• Installs easily onto any new or existing sign post.
• High intensity LEDs flash in unison, once per second, commanding the attention of drivers day and night.
• Optional LED dimming at night to reduce glare for motorists.
