Carmanah Provides 24-Hour Solar LED Warning Flashers to Florida Department of Transportation

Carmanah’s Solar LED Lighting Group has recently received an order for 48 units of its R247 Series solar-powered LED warning flashers from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). These units are scheduled for installation throughout the Greater Tampa area of the state.

FDOT was seeking a reliable and cost-effective means of enhancing and improving the visibility of warning signs on state roads. Carmanah’s R247 series flashing beacon was selected as the ideal technology for this application and was also a certified product on Florida’s Approved Products List (APL). Carmanah’s R247 is currently the only solar-powered LED warning flasher that is FDOT approved and listed on the APL under certification #67014370427011. Florida represents a large and influential market for traffic control products in the United States. The FDOT’s approval process for Carmanah’s solar LED flashing beacons was rigorous and took approximately 18 months to complete.

With their self-contained and modular design, Carmanah’s R247 solar LED flashing beacons install quickly and can withstand strong winds. Agencies in Florida recognize that there is a reliable solar flasher now available in Florida that is FDOT certified. In addition to FDOT, many cities and counties are ordering Carmanah’s flashing beacons for installation throughout Florida.

About the R247 Series Flashing Beacons
