TAPCO Launches New LegendViz ™ Traffic Signs For Improved Nighttime Visibility
BROWN DEER, Wisconsin., June 30, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Traffic and Parking Control Company, Inc. (TAPCO), manufacturer, distributor and service provider of traffic and parking control products, is pleased to announce the launch of a new line of products, LegendViz™ Traffic signs.
LegendViz™ the signs feature a legend illuminated from dusk to dawn by long-lasting LEDs, allowing better readability of the signs without the need for retro-reflectivity or headlights. Each legend is highly visible and brilliantly lit, whether you approach the panel directly or from perpendicular or offset angles.
A TAPCO survey found that improving the visibility of legends is a prominent need for LED-enhanced signs among DOT engineers and municipal traffic engineers. LegendViz™ Traffic signs have been shown to increase the readability distance of signs by up to 100% compared to standard traffic signs, based on the results of a closed-course driving test and statistical analysis conducted by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI).
The offer also includes LegendViz™ BlinkerSigns, which combines the proven visibility benefits of flashing perimeter LEDs with LED-lit sign captions.
“We are delighted to announce the launch of our new LegendViz™ Traffic signs, ”said TAPCO’s vice president of sales and marketing, Robert prosser. “The increased visibility offered by these signs is very valuable and effective in many contexts. Legends for traditional panels can be difficult to read in low light conditions or from certain angles, so LegendViz™ Road signs can help increase compliance and safety. ”
LegendViz™ Signs are designed for simple one-person installation and are MUTCD compliant, with solar and AC power options available for flexible configuration.
