A quick guide to solar safety lights

When it comes to safety lights, you should know they are used in many different industries. Whether it’s for road, aviation or marine safety, this type of lights represents an eco-friendly and cost-effective lighting solution. Find out more about them in this week’s blog post.

How much do you really know about warning or safety lights? As the name implies, these lighting devices direct traffic of all kinds and are used for safety and security purposes. But unlike conventional warning lights, the solar ones have more advantages in terms of quality, energy-efficiency and durability.

In the following lines, we are going to describe the main types of solar safety lights.

Solar road safety lights

First and foremost, solar road safety lights represent the most common type of warning lights. They are meant to highlight hazardous areas around roadways and safety barriers in order to avoid unwanted collisions during the night.

Plus, they rely on solar energy, which means they do not require generators or other external power supplies. Solar road safety lights are available in a variety of colours (blue, green, red, white, yellow) and can come in steady or flashing mode.

Aviation safety lights

Solar aviation safety lights are high-intensity lighting devices attached to tall structures as part of the air safety measures and procedures. These lights make structures more visible to aircraft and are mainly used at night (sometimes during the day in poor visibility situations).

In general, they mark runway strips, helicopter pads, taxiways and other areas where strong lighting is required. These solar low maintenance, self-sufficient lights have a large visual range and are able to operate from dusk until dawn with enough battery capacity for more consecutive nights during inclement weather.

Solar marine safety lights

Solar marine safety lights are the most practical and cost-effective solution for safely marking docks, boats, jetties, buoys, bridges and marine signage. In fact, these lights are designed for harsh environments, being UV and water resistant. Similar to the other safety lights, there is a wide variety of colours and operation modes to choose from.
