It’s our business to care about road safety, and our signs help reduce accidents on roads and motorways by employing the newest innovations and tech. Leading traffic safety products such as our HAWK crosswalk signals, flashing light school zone signals, and rectangular rapid flashing beacons (RRFB) are some of our most successful and meaningful pieces of work.
In addition to offering the best in pedestrian warning signs, we offer a wide range of customization options that allow our clients to adapt products to their specific projects, environment, and specifications. From AC or DC (solar powered) power options to different signal settings and customized installations, ELTEC is committed to building a safer future.
ELTEC is proud to be one of the leading providers of pedestrian warning signs in school zones. Since 1968, we have provided programmable time clocks linked to the flashing LED traffic signal beacons. A warning system that is required by law in many school zones, it can be configured with either one or two of the flashing LEDs per pole. These systems can be set to an automated schedule as far out as an entire school year. There is also an option of adding an extra light, known as a “tattle-tail” which lets the authorities confirm that the pedestrian warning sign is working correctly.
ELTEC’s pedestrian crossing warning systems are made to keep pedestrians safe. Even when solar powered, the lights are never dull – they have been programmed to remain at top power even on overcast days. These pedestrian warning signs are designed to alert all motorists when a crosswalk is in use by a pedestrian. There are multiple ways in which these pedestrian warning signs can be utilised, including hiking and horse trails, jogging and running paths, cyclist crossings, and many more.
One of our pedestrian traffic control products, Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) act as a pedestrian warning sign and are designed to be used in addition to uncontrolled pedestrian and school crosswalk signs. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has granted interim approval for the optional use of RRFBs. The use of this system has been proven to increase the compliance of motorists when it comes to yielding at crosswalks. This is due to the pattern, brightness, and intensity of the beacons – which is similar to those used in emergency response units. Our RRFB pedestrian crossing system even has a remote monitoring option available.
Pedestrians can often face conditions that are hazardous on the roads. This is why ELTECs HAWK (high-intensity activated crosswalk) is an activated crosswalk signal that acts as a pedestrian warning sign to assist when crossing a street or highway. Known in the traffic industry as a “hybrid pedestrian crossing,” these systems offer added pedestrian traffic control, designed to increase the safety of unmonitored crosswalks. It has an unusual triangular design with the hybrid beacon face having two red LED lights on top and one amber LED light below. These lights will remain dark until activated by a pedestrian. When initiated either by the push button, the camera or by microwave detection, the HAWK flashes in a specific beacon sequence requiring motorists to stop. This acts as a pedestrian warning sign – making sure those looking to cross the road are kept safe.
