Pedestrian Crossing Belisha Becons - Solar Powered

Highways Agency Compliant

Belisha Beacon


Thorne and Derrick solar powered Belish Beacons comply with BS8442 which is the UK Department of Transport belisha beacon specification issued in 2006.

The financial advantage of solar powered belisha beacons is that no expensive and fault prone cabling is required, no electricity bill, 100% carbon free in operation and the belisha beacon unit requires minimum maintenance.

The FSBB2016 V2 solar powered belisha beacon has been installed at retail developments, local authority buildings and factories to provide new and refurbished Sainsbury's store projects since May 2010. Tesco have also installed the solar beacons at a number of their stores and HQ.

Solar Powered Belisha Beacons for Road Safety

Motorists are familiar with this style of belisha beacon on pedestrian crossings and consequently slow down when approaching and stop if pedestrians are on the crossing - this is an automatic psychological response and is irrelevant as to whether the crossing is on a public road or private road. i.e. the presence of a familiar belisha beacon not just a flashing light increases awareness with motorists and consequently makes the crossing safer.
