SolarLite F Series Flush Road Studs

Smart, safe and sustainable solar powered road studs, proven to increase night time road safety. Providing a view of the road layout ahead in the driver's natural line of vision and well beyond the headlight beam of a vehicle.

Features

  • Up to 900m of visibility from high intensity LEDs
  • Totally sustainable harnessing free solar energy
  • Superior solar energy harvesting & storage electronics designed to maintain light outputs throughout a full annual cycle
  • Use where street lighting is either unavailable, not cost effective or environmentally not possible
  • Ideally suited to centre line and slip road use
  • Low profile of less than 4mm above the road surface
  • Full range of colour options for all delineation use including amber, red, white or green

Benefits

  • Superior distance visibility of road layout ahead compared to retro-reflective studs
  • Reliable all night, all year round performance
  • Lower lifetime costs than traditional road studs
  • Long lasting, carefree operation
  • Superior visibility even in poor weather conditions and on wet roads
  • Decreases night time accidents by over 70%
  • Allows additional reaction time to respond to changing road layouts
  • Reduces erratic driving behaviour and smoothes braking along winding roads
  • Enhances driving experience, making drivers feel safer and more able to travel at night
  • Highly impactful and politically visible contribution towards reducing road safety fears

Making do with sub-standard visibility on the road is a recipe for disaster, collisions and in the worst case scenario, fatalities.

Conventional "cat's eye" retro-reflective studs have been around for decades and in that time, their performance has barely changed. They still rely on the effectiveness of the vehicle's headlight beam to provide enough light at the right angle to reflect some of that light back at the driver to delineate the road ahead. At best, that headlight beam normally extends to about 90m.

SolarLite active road studs don't have that same dependency. They don't rely on the headlight beam of the vehicle at all. Instead, they actively deliver light output directly in the natural line of sight of the driver from high brightness LEDs in the stud. These LED road studs are powered by solar energy captured from natural sunlight by the in-built solar panel and stored in the stud's internal battery. As a result of this active light output, they deliver 10 x greater visibility of the road layout ahead than the traditional retro-reflective road markings, giving drivers up to 900m visibility.

And this is proven to make a significant difference, reducing night-time road accidents by over 70%.

Let's put that into perspective. A motorist driving at a speed of 100km/h (62mph) will see 90m of delineation from retro-reflective studs. This provides around 3.2 seconds to react to changes in the road ahead. With active road studs providing up to 900m visibility, reaction time available to the motorist is over 30 seconds. This provides plenty of time to take in and process information about possible hazards ahead and adjust your driving accordingly without needing to slam on the brakes.

Even in poor conditions (rain, fog or surface spray) where traditional retro-reflective studs and road markings are less visible, SolarLite studs continue to shine brightly, guiding you safely.

SolarLite road studs are more robust and durable than traditional road studs meaning they've a lower overall lifetime cost than a retro-reflective road stud and better longevity.

Just a few hours of daylight will provide enough battery power to last days - more than enough to ensure the system operates all year round, whatever the weather and wherever the location in the world.

The SolarLite studs are fully Type Approved by the United Kingdom Department for Transport.

Whilst initially conceived for use on roads, their low profile makes the SolarLite active road studs perfect for use in a wide variety of additional applications such as pedestrian and cycle paths, on crosswalks, level crossings and railway platforms.
