Inpavement lights may be used for any application requiring lights for guidance. They are especially useful where overhead clearance is restricted or suspension of overhead lighting would be too expensive, for example:
Vehicle Guidance and Lane Delineation Lights
In-road lights that mark the center and edge of the lane help drivers anticipate the road alignment ahead. This is especially important on dark, curvy roads during poor visibility conditions, like rain, snow or fog.
In-road lights also can increase the road capacity and reduce congestion by adapting the existing road layout through dynamically changing lane directions and reallocating extra lanes when the volume of traffic demands it.
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. When coupled with a sensor system, in-road lights will flash to command the attention of errant drivers at exit ramps and other roadways with one-way traffic.
The GYR is a unidirectional inpavement light designed to work in sync with traffic signal lights for crosswalk applications. GYR lights help prevent accidents two ways: (1) by providing an extra street-level indication of the signal light status, and (2) by forming a visual stop bar between vehicles and pedestrians in the crosswalk.
The GYR lights are operated by the traffic light controller and display the same color: green, yellow or red. The heavy-duty body casting is load bearing and manufactured from corrosion resistant anodized aluminum or stainless steel.
Our Stop Bar Warning Light System was recently installed dockside at the Yusen Container Terminal, Port of Los Angeles. The system uses red flashing lights to mark the location of a pedestrian crosswalk to help protect workers from heavy equipment during the loading and unloading of container ships. The system features (7) TS-600 bi-directional fixtures that are activated by a timer to operate in a continuous flashing mode during nighttime hours.
When it comes to unsafe bike lanes, in-road lights placed along a bike path can be triggered to flash when cyclists are near. The flashing lights help to alert drivers of the presence of cyclists and encourage caution.
Over 100 yellow TS-600 lights were installed at the Circuito de Albacete race track in Spain. The lights are used at the exit from the pit stop to indicate the appropriate speed the driver should have before returning to the race track.
