LED safety lights for traffic control and construction site safety or any place where large volumes of traffic road or aviation need to be signalled

Posted by in on Oct 15, 2021 .

Our latest traffic wand design introduces a two button operation so that traffic marshalls (often reffered to as banksmen in the trade) can continually cycle through red and green signalling modes using the unique pressure switch which has to be pressed and held to operate the green lighting mode.once the traffic wand has been turned on.

The concept is simple and is similar to safety devices used in industry and transport  where a user has to exert continuous  pressure for the green light function to operate. If the user releases pressure the traffic wand reverts back to a red light mode giving a STOP. indicator.

This makes...

We get asked frequently why do you not have rechargeable traffic wands? On the face of it rechargeable traffic wands seem like a great idea, indeed we used to supply them several years ago and have other rechargeable products in our range however having supplied many thousands of traffic wands, listened to customer feedback  and seen how these products are used (and sometimes abused) we decided to withdraw recharegable wands from our range.

The reasons are many and varied but fundamentally we became concerned with the risk that presented itself with wands being a hand held product and as such are prone to user mishaps particularly...

We added a range of road cone traffic lamps this year with the sequential flashing traffic cone lamp in particular breaking the boundries in terms of offering a great value lamp that does not compromise on quality. We appreciated that the life expectancy of lamps on our overcrowded roads and motorways was pretty finite with literally hundreds being destroyed nationally on a weekly basis. 

Hence the introduction of cost effective lamp certified to EN12352:2006 standard to provide traffic management organisations an opportunity to replace lost or damaged lamps and make significant cost savings whilst still being able to utilise many...

January saw the introduction of a brand new, extremely compact yet highly effective police personal safety light with a toothed spring loaded clip ideal for fixing the light to uniforms and garments.

We have also incorporated a docking stud on the KB03-FIXSTUD version so that they can be fixed to any of the Klickfast range of docks used throughout the UK police forces.

Using CR2032 power cells as an alternative to AA or AAA batteries and the latest flat LED's its a quarter of the weight and a third of the size of our standard police duty light's. 

Despite its size, performance is still  impressive, the KB03 is highly...

Visible at 6 miles at 3000 Feet!

We had a customer contact us regarding a recent order they made for our Knight Pod Aviation Landing Light in a rechargeable case set of 6 units. 

They commented:-

"Our pilot loves the kit....spots the landing site from 6 miles out even in bad weather"

Now we have had the RAF and Army Air Corp test these to their satisfaction and they have previously mentioned visibility at 2 miles out but 6 miles is a bit of a record, when I commented that must have excellent vision I was quite rightly told:-

"I should think so... he is a bloody pilot!"  LOL

The pilot was flying his helicopter at...

Most traffic wands are used as a hand held visual signalling torch but with the compact traffic wand and a few Klickfast fittings you have a wand that is small enough to attach and wear on the person.

Extremely bright these wands can be worn and quickly detached whenever they are needed, wearing them not only gives you the opportunity of illuminating the user but also keeps them close to hand as its surprising how many users put down a wand and forget where they left it.
