Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacon

Intelligent Warning Systems

Four times more effective than the common standard round beacon.

TAPCO’s pedestrian-activated Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacon (RRFB) systems produce 80-90 percent driver compliance in yielding to pedestrians at high-risk uncontrolled crossings. When activated by push button or motion detection, LED arrays flash a Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) specified alternating wig-wag pattern.

Side-mounted LED arrays flash concurrently to advise pedestrians that the units are actively flashing. The RRFB system produces the highest yielding rate of all traffic control devices not featuring a red display, and is four times more effective than the common standard round beacon. RRFBs cost less compared to other traffic control devices that produce similar vehicular yield rates.
