Portable Traffic Signal Description
When you are renting a portable traffic signal, think about the size as well as where you will be using it. You need to make sure that it is easily visible and that people see it for what it is. Consider whether you want to choose one of the solar powered options as well. It’s often easier than getting a generator, but the choice is yours.
Features of portable traffic signals
The portable traffic signal features a tower with a traffic signal attached to it. The signal itself is typically going to be on a base that features wheels. The lights are still heavy, so you will have to be careful when you are moving it from place to place. Some of the units also have a solar panel attached to them so they can gather solar energy for their power. They will also have a control system that you will be able to use to program the lights, or to use a preset program.
How portable traffic signals work
The traffic signal works similarly to a regular signal. The only real difference is that this one is portable and you can take it with you. You can place the device where you need in order to better control the speed and the flow of the traffic. Most of the devices will have a number of preprogrammed modes, which can make them beneficial for different applications. Some of the units are solar powered so you do not have to worry about getting power to the light or using a generator.
