The chevrons are powered by the vehicle’s battery, and can be wired in to be activated when the vehicle’s hazard lights are switched on, or configured on a separate switch entirely.
They have the option of displaying lights in solid or flashing modes and can also be programmed to flash in a certain sequence, which is a particularly useful aid to provide directional signage, RGVA says.
The robust, waterproof kits are made bespoke for each vehicle type and can be cut to any size and shape. With around 80,000 hours’ illumination life, the high-performance illuminated safety graphics will outlive standard vehicle lease terms, the company adds.
RGVA already provides many vehicle operators with traditional Chapter 8 vehicle chevrons, designed to help operators safely carry out signing, lighting and guarding of street works and road works on all highways and roads. Illuminated signage is an enhanced safety solution, said to offer greater visibility.
Based in Maidstone, RGVA offers vinyl wrapping, graphic applications, signwriting and vehicle branding services for cars, trucks and trailers, both locally in Kent, Sussex, Surrey and London, and for companies right across the UK.
