    Belisha beacons for sainsburys

    Belisha beacons for Sainsburys supermarkets

Solar belisha beacons provided by T&D can be used anywhere required and are specified for use by Sainsburys supermarkets for use in their car parks and crossings. Solar powered belisha beacons are installed at more than 150 Sainsburys supermarket stores in the UK.

Solar powered belisha beacons have been developed by modifying the Interplex Solar IS820 solar marine/aviation beacon that has a proven track record of ruggedness and age tested over 10 years. The result is identical to a traditional belisha beacon and gives 360 degree visibility.

T&D’s solar power Belisha Beacon will operate automatically from dusk till dawn anywhere in the UK.

Thorne and Derrick also supply the 3m poles/posts that the solar power belisha beacons are installed on to.
