LED-Enhanced warning signs can be single or double-sided light bars. You can also enhance your RRFB with a BlinkerSign Flashing LED sign to use with or without the RRFB LEDs. Blinkersigns are edge-lit signs engineered to capture drivers’ attention and increase yield rates to pedestrians at crosswalks while utilizing various amounts of amber LEDs dependent upon the sign face.

All crosswalk signs are RRFB MUTCD-compliant and made with Diamond Grade reflective sheeting to provide the highest level of visibility and safety. Other options available include:

  • Single or back-to-back RRFB flashing beacon options
  • WW+S (wig-wag and simultaneous flash pattern combination)
  • Dimmable LEDs
  • Optional pedestrian LED indicator
