About Solar Road Stud

     SOLAR ROAD STUDS( SRS) are the new age replacements for the conventional Reflective Road Studs, popularly known as CAT EYES. During the day, the Solar Road Stud (SRS) absorbs sunlight and changes it into electrical energy. During the night, it will then light without external power sources. Due to the aluminium alloy and poly carbonate makeup, the studs are absolutely weather resistant/virtually indestructible.

  Our SRS are highly effective at getting the drivers attention because of its bright lighting, the standard retro-reflective materials used and ensure good visibility in darkness. The SRS consequently increases the safety of all road users as it enhances the ability to discern / navigate danger zones much better than CAT EYES or conventional road studs.

  Our SRS are manufactured specially for vast country , with extreme climatic conditions and have been thoroughly tested and were found functioning properly from -25 - +75.

 
COMPARISON BETWEEN SRS & CATEYES
1.SRS are the new age replacements for the conventional Reflective Road Studs, popularly known as CAT EYES, introduced by Percy Shaw, in 1938. The cat eyes are based on the technique of reflection, they are visible up to the distance, headlights provide illumination i.e. 80m. On the other hand, as the SRS comprises of ultra-bright LEDs(Light Emitting Diodes) are visible from a distance of more than 10 times or 800m.

2.The visibility provided by the cat eyes is totally dependent on the quality of light emitting from the vehicle it is almost use less in case the headlights are not configured properly. During the day, the Solar Road Studs(SRS) absorbs sunlight and changes it into electrical Energy. During the night, it will then light up automatically without external power sources.

3.The cat eyes loose their reflective qualities in rain/muddy conditions or when they get dirty. Our SRS are highly effective at getting the drivers attention because of its bright lighting, the standard retro-reflective materials used ensure good visibility in darkness. The SRS consequently increases the safety of all road users as it enhances the ability to discern/ navigate danger zones much earlier than CAT EYES or conventional road studs. The conventional reflectors are rendered useless as they fail to reflect headlight back to the driver when headlights or / and main beam is being projected upwards to drivers coming from opposite direction rendering the road ahead Pitch-Black

 
Advantages of Solar Road Stud
 
  1.Economical and Self Sustainable

  The SRS have solar rechargeable batteries/capacitor and operate automatically without any external power source nor does it require huge expenditure in setting up electrical infrastructure which prevents burden on State exchequer. They can be easily deployed in remote areas where electric supply is not available or is not feasible. Thus it is an economical alternative to expensive street lighting.

  As the SRS are extremely bright they need to be put much farther apart from one another, almost twice the distance when compared to Cat Eyes, thus lesser units are required which further reduce cost by 50%.

2.Reduction and Prevention of Accidents

  SRS improves road delineation, particularly effective at night or in poor / bad weather conditions as bright LEDs penetrates through fog or mist and provide over 800m visibility. This enhances visibility and / or cautions the driver of any hazards well in advance.

  The reaction time to navigate the vehicle is increased it results in avoidance of sudden braking & last minute vehicle maneuvers. (Most common cause of road mishaps).

3.Driver Friendly

  The use of the headlight main beam is reduced to a great extent because of better and farther visibility of the roads which avoids any inconvenience to the oncoming drivers or passengers.

4.Reliable & Maintenance Free

   Our SRS were designed after extensive R&D and are manufactured especially for a vast country, keeping in mind the extreme climatic conditions and were found to function normally in -25C to +75C.

  Our SRS are made of strengthened Aluminum alloy and Hi-Grade poly carbonate, these studs are absolutely weather resistant / virtually indestructible.

  No maintenance is required and they work efficiently and reliably for years and years to come.

   
Solar Road Stud FAQ
 
1.If the L.E.D. light failed to operate for some reason, is the public safety compromised in any way?
Solar Road Stud features the "dual mode illumination" for its fail-safe functional reliability. Our product features the reflective panel that has been equally tested to be equally functional as the conventional reflective road marker when the L.E.D. light is disabled. Therefore, if the unit malfunctioned and failed to illuminate the L.E.D. light beam, the road visibility is essentially equal and no less than before the installation of the Solar Miracle. In other words, you can only improve road safety with our product. There is no compromise for road safety if a unit malfunctions.

2.During the long rainy seasons with heavy overcast conditions, will Solar Road Stud continue to operate with limited availability sunlight?
Since Solar Road Stud is equipped with super efficient solar panels, and since the required power consumption is relatively very small, we have not encountered any report of installed units that have failed to operate properly, directly due to the lack of available sunlight.

3.What is the load rating for the Solar Road Stud unit? Is it strong enough for heavy trucks?
Solar Road Stud units can withstand the load of over 20tons per tire.

4.Is the transparent, solar panel cover on the Solar Road Stud strong enough when subjected to the punishment on the road?

The cover has been tested by laboratories for its durability and wear ability. Most importantly, it has been road tested in actual installations and found to be very durable and unbreakable.

5.How long is the lifetime of L.E.D. "bulb"?
With L.E.D. illumination, there is no "bulb" to burn out, since it contains a transistor-like diode that emit light beams when supplied with a very small amount of electrical current. Thus, the L.E.D. "bulb" is virtually burn-out free during the lifetime of its unit.

6.Does the Solar Road Stud unit require any maintenance while installed on the road?

Aside from normal pressured air cleaning of reflective surfaces, and the panel cover to clean off dust and stains, the Solar Miracle requires no service maintenance. The unit is sealed and does not contain any serviceable parts.

7.Can I customize the Solar Road Stud to suit my needs?

Yes! Solar Road Stud can be ordered with any different combination of available color combinations for the reflector panel, L.E.D. light, and aluminum alloy body. The units can be of steady flashing light model, with double-sided illumination.
