A Traffic Advisor is a Multi-Functional Light Bar

Posted by on Mar 2, 2017 in Traffic Advisors | 0 comments

When buying emergency vehicle lights for POVs and fleet vehicles, many people immediately think about surface mount LEDs, light bars, and visor lights. But, what most people don’t reflect on until later is a traffic advisor. When planning your light set-up, it’s important to remember that a traffic advisor is a multi-functional light bar. Below, we’re going to tell you why you should consider this device and what it can do for you on the road.

How to Choose the Right Traffic Advisor for Your Vehicle

We have several traffic advisor options in our online store. To help serve you better, we want to explain how to choose the right traffic advisor for your vehicle. The two features you need to consider before you make your purchase is design and color.

Traffic Advisor Designs

When shopping our online store, you’ll notice we have many choices. One of the first things you’ll have to decide is what length traffic advisor is right for your vehicle. Next, you’ll need to choose a color. Colors can be selected by using the drop-down menu on the product page. If you prefer solid colors that is what color the advisor will flash in. We also offer dual color traffic advisors that feature code colors and have an amber directional arrow.

Dual Colored Traffic Advisors

With one of our dual colored traffic advisors, you have the option to use code lights, solid or combination colors, and an amber directional arrow. Since the unit is made with LED lighting, there is no cooling down period between code lighting and amber lights, which means you can go from one to the other in a matter of seconds.

The Benefits of a Dual Color Traffic Advisor

Vehicles that use a traditional traffic advisor benefit from this device because it allows them to direct traffic away from a scene without having to sacrifice a person to do it manually. The added benefit of a dual color traffic advisor is that you can get a directional arrow and code lighting in one unit. What this means is you can save money on your lighting budget and space on your vehicle. Another benefit is the dual color traffic advisor serves multiple functions, which will make your vehicle and the way you can use your vehicle more dynamic. With most of these multi-functional options only one control box is needed, so you’ll always be ready to adapt on the go.
Shop 911 Signal USA today to get a traffic control device that will help protect you and your team while on the scene. When you need code lights, you just activate the multi-color functions with the switch of a button and be on your way. If you have any questions, please contact us today, and we’ll be happy to help.

What Truck Lights are Useful at a Construction Site?

Posted by on Feb 7, 2017 in Traffic Advisors | 0 comments

At 911 Signal USA, we specialize in emergency vehicle lights for police, fire, and EMS vehicles. We also offer units in amber and white for utility vehicles; such as those used at a construction site. Construction vehicles can benefit from utility lighting for a number of reasons. Like first responder emergency vehicles, a construction vehicle is easier to see when outfitted with bright, LED warning lights. We’ll go over other reasons you should install warning units on your construction vehicle below.

Understanding the Benefit of Construction Vehicle Lighting

When you’re outfitting your company’s construction trucks with equipment, you should consider emergency truck lights. Even if you think you no one will ever use the lighting, it’s better to be safe than sorry. In fact, you’ll probably be surprised how often the lights will be used after they are installed. Are you still not convinced? Consider the following scenarios.

Construction Lights Improve Visibility on a Site

Construction lights are the easiest way to make a work site safer. There are a variety of lights that can easily be installed on work trucks and equipment including floodlights, strobe lights, and roof-top light bars. By installing this equipment on trucks that are already in use, workers will not have to haul, move, and store the equipment when not in use. With better lighting at a construction site workers will be safer and their work will likely be more accurate. Lights can also increase the workday because workers can work before and after the sun sets.

Construction Vehicles Can be Moved Where Lighting is Needed

Another great benefit of installing warning lights on a construction vehicle is the usability of the equipment. When installed on a truck or construction equipment, a vehicle can be moved to improve lighting wherever it is needed. What this means is if your workers need more light on the other side of a lot, you can do it simply by moving a truck. A vehicle can also be positioned anyway that’s needed to provide the best visibility.

Roadside Construction is Safer with Warning Lights

Working on the side of the road is dangerous. Construction workers have to be aware of their surroundings at all times. One of the biggest risks in this situation is that a driver won’t notice workers near roadways. If a driver doesn’t have enough time to adjust their path before approaching a construction site tragedy could occur.

One way to decrease this risk is for any vehicle used during roadside projects to be equipped with flashing amber lights. Due to the nature of the risk involved, roadside trucks should be installed with warning equipment on the front, back, and sides of a vehicle. With 360-degrees of visibility construction workers can feel safer while working near roadways.

Having the right construction lighting on your vehicle will keep crews, drivers, and members of the public safe by effectively directing traffic away from work sites. One of the best lights for roadside crews is a directional traffic advisor. This type of equipment is extremely bright and signals drivers to move to the right or left to avoid a work crew.

Check out 911 Signal USA for all of your construction vehicle needs. We offer light bars, hideaways, bumper lighting, and traffic advisors that will fit your vehicles and your budget. If you have any questions or need help choosing the right amber warning lights for your fleet – please contact our customer service team that will be happy to help.

Better yet, there is no cool down period, so the change from code to directional lights is instantaneous. With this split second change, you can count on your dual color traffic advisor to be used as code lights and directional lights, which eliminates the need for two pieces of equipment and allows you to save money on your emergency vehicle light set-up.

6 Things you need to Know about LED Warning Lights

Posted by on Feb 21, 2014 in Traffic Advisors | 0 comments

If you or your department is thinking about upgrading your emergency vehicle lights, you should consider replacing your lights with brand new LED lights from 911 Signal USA. To express just how powerful our lights are, we have gathered six facts about LED lights that will persuade you to make the switch.

#1 LED Lights are more Energy Efficient than Other Types of Lighting

An LED light, also called a light-emitting diode, is a type of light that uses a unique semiconductor to turn electricity into light. By design, these lights are about six to seven times more energy efficient than traditional lights.A reenactment of how a blue diode creates blue LED light output.

#2 Our LED Emergency Lights will last about 100,000 Hours

When you browse our inventory, make sure to check out the product specifications. Here, you will find that most of our LED lights have a life expectancy of about 100,000 hours. Under normal usage, an emergency light featuring LED technology could last up to 10 years.

#3 LED Lights don’t Waste Heat

Traditional emergency lights with incandescent bulbs release the majority of their energy as heat. In comparison, LED lights waste very little energy, which means there is virtually no wasted heat.

#4 LED Lighting is Environmentally Friendly

LED lights are environmentally friendly because they do not contain mercury. As LED technology continues to expand, this type of lighting is expected to become even better in the future.

#5 The Future is Bright for LED Warning Lights

LEDs have been around since 1962 when they were originally created by GE employee Nick Holonyak, Jr. While it is true that this technology took some time to catch on, it is expected that by 2030, almost 75% of all lighting sales will feature LED lighting.

#6 Expect to Save Money when you install LED Lights on your Emergency Vehicle

In 2012, it is estimated that over 49 million LED light bulbs were installed. The installation of these light bulbs saved almost $675 in energy costs. If more people switch to LED warning lights on their emergency vehicles and POVs there could be a drastic decrease in carbon emissions, which would benefit everyone.
