All You Need to Know About Rotating Beacons
Rotating beacons (also warning beacons or warning lights) are used on a variety of vehicles to alert other road users to their presence or warn of potential danger. The rotating beacon provides a 360° visibility for the signal to be perceived from all sides. Therefore, it is important that the beacon is mounted to the vehicle in a way that the flashing light it is not covered. Depending on national regulations rotating beacons can be required signalling elements e.g., on abnormal load transports such as special transports (convoi exceptionnel), oversized loads and HGV as well as their escort vehicles.
Especially at night or in dim light conditions, these flashing amber lights provide extra visibility to vehicles that are potential safety hazards. Our rotating beacons are equipped with LED lights, which means they save energy and are environmentally friendly. Thanks to the magnetic base, the rotating beacons can be installed and removed as needed.
