Traffic and pedestrian signals represent the foundation of safety at any signalized intersection. They also represent the first, and arguably the most important, interaction motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians have with Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS).
Polycarbonate provides transportation agencies and MPOs with key benefits such as reduced weight, corrosion resistance and reduced maintenance. Reduced weight is necessary when adding signals to existing mast arms or new longer reach structures. Polycarbonate signals are also less susceptible to corrosion in high humidity applications, as well as pitting from sand in high wind areas. Each traffic signal consists of a number of identical polycarbonate signal sections rigidly fastened together to present a continuous, attractive appearance. Each section has a separate and complete housing. The traffic signal meets or exceeds the latest version of the equipment standard from the Institute of Transportation Engineers’ (ITE).
