I’m always amazed at the new uses for LEDs, and not just in switches
or replacing flashlight bulbs.
LEDtronics announced the release of its new Flashing LED Chevron Arrow Mat.
This convenient, portable, lightweight LED Arrow Mat has three safety Light
Modes of operation. Users can select from a Sequential LED Arrow Flash Mode;
All-LED Arrows Flashing in Unison Mode; and All LED Arrows Always “On”
The beauty of LEDs is that they are solid-state devices that offer high shock
and vibration resistance. The LED mat is the ideal safety item for station remote
vehicles, vans and trucks. Use an LED mat to drive traffic into a remote site.
The Chevron Arrow Mat is energy-efficient, too, and operates with three replaceable
AA cell batteries for nearly 72 hours in the arrows-sequentially-flashing mode,
48 hours with all arrows flashing in unison, and up to six hours in the arrows-always-on
mode (batteries are not included).
LEDtronics thought of everything. The LED Arrow Mat has eight magnetic pads
that allow attachment to ferric-metallic surfaces — like the side of your
remote van. But they also included eight 1/2-inch eyelets for fasteners or cable
connections. In addition to using the mat to provide direction to a station
event location, it can be used as a traffic director or even a roadside-emergency
The price for the LED Chevron warning mat is $45.90 each. Availability is stock
to 4 weeks for special requirements. For additional information contact LEDtronics
