Nighttime visibility is a critical component of road safety. As a result, it is critical to provide an appropriate road lighting system and improve road user's vision in low-light circumstances to boost confidence.
We already know that drivers reacted favorably to the active road studs a nighttime road feature, but we have been studied photoluminescent road studs’ benefits for other road users.
After a long period of testing, study and improvements, we know that Photoluminescent road studs can increase road safety by increasing visibility and improving energy efficiency.
SR-5500L it’s an eco-friendly road stud that lights up at night without the need for power. The Glow in the Dark feature allows this road stud to store ambient light throughout the day and then re-emit this stored energy by lighting the roadway. It makes it visible for a long period when it becomes dark. Its storing-emitting function can be used repeatedly and has long average life.
The self-luminous feature offers nighttime guiding directions to drivers of non-motorized vehicles and pedestrians. In this way, it substantially enhances nighttime road safety and energy efficiency.
The photoluminescent road stud SR-5500L is appropriate for regular traffic zones, parking lots, pedestrian paths, bike paths, and side areas, particularly those lacking street lights, such as villages and green areas.
SR-5500L top part can be easily changed, making its maintenance simple. It has a hard mechanical structure – aluminum - with an efficient design to resist high impacts. It is a low-profile stud, rising only 20,5mm from the surface.
Improve Road Safety in Green Mobility
SR-5500L lights up without the need of energy or the emission of CO2. Its Glow in The Dark feature allows this road stud to store ambient light throughout the day and then re-emit this stored energy when it becomes dark.
It is a green option and a useful tool in the battle against light pollution.
Improve Road Safety in Bike Paths
The new mobility paradigm led to the increase of bike paths and bike lanes all over the world. This new mobility paradigm comes with environmental conscience and authorities want to cut costs and decrease their environmental effect by limiting the installation of lights on bike paths. How can authorities facilitate users' nighttime movement (bicycles, scooters, etc.)?
SR-5500L works as a light guide that defines the bike path, giving bikers a great nighttime visibility distance without the need of power. Its Glow in The Dark feature allows this road stud to store ambient light throughout the day and then re-emit this stored energy by lighting the bike path and being visible for a long period when it becomes dark.
Improve Road Safety in Pedestrian Mobility
At night, even the smallest obstruction becomes an obstacle for pedestrian mobility. Whether in places without public illumination or in towns that turn off street lights for part of the night, SR-5500L makes it easier for people to move around at night.
SR-5500L improves pedestrian mobility and direction in the dark, turning into a luminous guide that reassures users and alerts them to bends, curbs, works and street furniture.
This Glow in the dark road stud can also mark or identify risky zones, like crosswalks, making them “visible” even when the street lights are turned off.
Improve Road Safety for Road Users
SR-5500L can improve the visibility of unique points such as roundabouts, baffles, and separators on low-speed traffic zones and parking lots. The Glow in the dark road stud enhances drivers’ visibility at night. It can assist drivers in finding their way beyond the illumination of their headlights, improving their confidence and allowing them to better anticipate risks in dark regions.
Improve Road Safety in Rural Roads
SR-5500L has the potential to minimize nighttime and low-light collisions on rural roads. By boosting drivers’ confidence, the application of SR-5500L will result in positive changes to driver behavior and a reduction in collision potential. With road lighting for junctions and road sections being costly and unfeasible in most places, this Glow in the Dark road stud is a more cost-effective and emission-free alternative that offers many of the same benefits.
Improve Road Safety in Parking Lots
SR-5500L can enhance visibility and navigation for parking lot users whether looking for a spot or traveling to and from their vehicles. It was lower running expenses when compared to street lighting, there are no pollutants from its operation, and it improves navigation through the parking lot or roadside parking lot with no additional electric power.
