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
We mentioned last month a new product innovation that incorporated a unique pressure sensitive safety switch into one of our most popular designs of traffic baton. This our compact red and green flashing traffic wand is designed for banksman operations where the banksman may be moving over uneven ground as found on most construction sites.
Imagine the scenario where the operator trips or falls whilst guiding a vehicle and the traffic wand is still signalling green - there's a risk that the vehicle driver continues to proceed as they only see a green light - now with the pressure sensitive button the light reverts back to a red...

We now have new stock of our hi-viz aircraft marshalling wand which has a day-glo effect light sleeve and handle making it ideal for day and night time operations on airfield aprons.
Using 2 x C cell batteries the light wand has slow flash and constant on light functions. A single 1W LED bulb located in the handle illuminates the length of the aircraft marshalling wand with a soft light so as not to adversely effect night vision yet it is still visible at distance @ 300metres.
This is a robust wand better able to withstand drops of up to 6ft so should be considered as an alternative to other wands if used in a demanding...
