signal column / safety

signal column

The signal column is a system to improve the traffic safety. It combines the breakdown triangle and the reflector post. Accidents can be secured faster, simpler and more efficient. People win time for life saving methods. Instead of 50 to 200 meters of walkway to set up a breakdown triangle, the affected persons only have to walk to the next signal column to touch it. The dangerous walk along the roadside is now at the maximum 0 to 25 meters. Drivers approaching the accident will be warned through the light flash. The signal column next to the accident lights up continuously to give the affected person a comfortable secure feeling.
