Protect students on campus with LED warning lights

The Transportation Research Board estimates that 25,000 children are injured every year in school zone accidents.

Our School Zone Warning System consists of a series of high intensity, bidirectional inpavement lights that are installed down the centerline of a road in order to improve school zone safety. The lights warn motorists to slow down and look for children walking to and from school. The flashing lights are activated by a timer and typically operate one hour before and after school when pedestrian foot traffic and vehicles mix. Because the lights only flash when children are likely to be present, drivers are more likely to notice the lights and slow down.

School Zone Warning Light Systems - FAQ

How many fixtures does a typical system require?

Each system is different. Contact our team today to get immediate help customizing a system for your situation.


Are these solar powered LED fixtures?

Yes, fixtures are available in solar or AC power. The solar powered LED models are design for minimal maintenance.


Are these lights intended for lighting the entire length of the school zone? 

It is recommend that fixtures are installed along the length of the school zone to create an enhanced safety environment, typically 800 feet in length.

Can these be setup to flash only when students are present?

Yes. The system controller allows a timer setup. Lights will flash at those set times and durations, like the hour before and after classes are held.


How far apart are fixtures usually spaced?

A typical School Zone Warning System is approximately 800 feet in length. With the fixtures spaced 35 to 50 feet apart.


How many fixtures will I need?

For the 800 foot long system, it takes 16 to 23 fixtures to cover the distance.

How does the system work?

Unlike a single sign or flasher, a system of flashing inpavement lights keep drivers alert along the entire length of the Zone.


How bright are the inpavement lights?

Each lamp projects a 500,000 candela per square meter wide-angle beam that is clearly visible in daylight and under the worst weather conditions.


Why do you recommend bidirectional fixtures?

This allows drivers coming from both directions of travel to notice the lights and slow down when students are present.
