Unlike paint or reflective markers,
LEDline® safety guidance lighting shows up in any weather and from much further away,
thus minimizing driver hesitation and confusion and providing drivers much
more time to react.
therefore, LEDline® safety guidance lighting helps improve road safety and efficiency!
Early LEDline® Safety Guidance Lighting On A Barrier.
Please Note: Today's LEDline® could be installed with alternating faces on top of the barrier, allowing for better visibility and greater spacing between the lit units. By increasing the spacing between the units, reduces the required number of units, so saves costs.
In addition, having LEDline® safety guidance lighting on the top of a barrier would achieve
a smoother lit guidance safety curving line for drivers to follow.
Below, The LEDline® Safety Guidance Lamps were Positioned On the Chevron Poles.
Notice how, unlike the chevron reflectors, being internally lit, the LEDline® safety guidance lamps
stand out, with or without headlights on them. This allows drivers to see them from much further away, giving drivers more time to react.
In addition, even when covered with snow or grime, the LEDline® units, which melt snow,
should shine through any dirt and grime, so should always be visible at night!
This Texas country road, high accident tight curve, has two LEDline® safety guidance units
on the chevron poles. These are specifically placed to draw the attention of and notify drivers of the upcoming tight curve from a distance. In addition, to further draw the attention of drivers from a distance, the LEDline® safety guidance units were flashing.
Again, reflective Chevrons without a light on them, do not show up, whilst the internally lit LEDline® safety guidance units, always will.
Early LEDline® Safety Guidance Units On A Bridge.
Today's units could be installed as linear lamps on the side of, or the top of the bridge railing, providing a smoother, lit, linear safety guidance line for drivers to follow around the sharp 90-degree bend.
In 2006, The Better Roads Magazine, Awarded LEDline® the “Top Rollout”Award.

LEDline® safety guidance lighting is Visible in any weather,
as it is self-cleaning by
melting snow and ice without
any additional heating elements!
Before its use at Anchorage International, visibility tests were done on the LEDline® guidance lighting system. The tests were carried out using the old-style LEDline® safety guidance units, (with only 6 x embedded LEDs), to see if the units were visible in deep snow.
As the pictures below illustrate, the lit LEDline® guidance units were not only clearly visible but as
the units melted the snow, they proved that they were self-cleaning.
