DISTASIGN / Redesign of a warning triangle


Analysing the situation during a cases of emergency we realized that the common warning triangle is of limited use regarding the prevention of accidents. Therefore we redesigned it and integrated the use of water in vaporised form to be a projection surface for a warning signal. It can be positioned and used in a quick and safe way and is highly visible. DISTASIGN is the advanced warning triangle. A nozzle vaporises water in intervals to create a projection surface of five meters height. This water is then illuminated by a LED ring at the nozzle. Especially at night a strong and wide warning impact can be managed.
