Make signs more effective with RRFBs and flashing beacons

Rapid flashing rectangular beacons, or standard flashing sign beacons are used to slow traffic and improve safety by bringing greater driver attention to the posted traffic signs. The flashing beacons can be used to increase awareness of speed limit signs, school zone signs, crosswalk signs or wherever driver compliance is critical.

RRFBs & Flashing Beacons - FAQ

Are these beacons available in a solar powered option?

Yes. Our traffic sign beacons are available in solar power or in a hardwired option.

 

Are sign poles or traffic signs included?

No. Sign poles are sold separately. If you’d like, we can include standard or flashing traffic signs, or sign poles, in your quote.

 

Can RRFBs be set to operate with 24/7 flashing?

No. For maximum durability and to extend lifetime performance, we don’t recommend 24/7 flashing.

Can RRFBs or beacons be setup on a timer?

We don’t recommend that method of operation. Instead, we recommend a pushbutton or bollard activation device. This ensures a long use life.

 

How does the wireless communication work?

Signs and activation devices can be setup to communicate wirelessly. When the bollard or pushbutton is activated, signs on that same frequency will begin flashing.

 

Do the round beacons connect with radar signs?

No. You’ll want to use our rectangular RRFB beacons for that application.

 

Can you setup round beacons to flash when someone exceeds the speed limit?

No. Again, you’ll want to use our rectangular RRFB beacons for that application.

 

Where do you recommend placing the controller?

It’s really up to you – some people choose the same pole, others choose a different pole. Some have opted for placing the controller in a secured electrical room and running conduit to the beacons.
