Safety in road tunnels

Modified flashing beacon 828 – specifically for use in road tunnels
When accidents occur in road tunnels, the safety of tunnel users takes top priority. Clear identification of escape routes can save lives.

To aid identification, a clear flashing beacon has been added below the familiar green emergency exit signs, and a yellow flashing beacon below the blue ones. These attention-grabbing model 828 beacons from WERMA provide a safe and reliable means of pointing the way to the nearest escape route, and provide a particularly vital aid to orientation in case of thick smoke.

Outstanding resistance
The Xenon flashing beacon 828 developed specifically for overhead mounting carries a high protection rating of IP 65. A special pressure compensating valve on the dome also prevents the build-up of condensation inside the beacon, affording optimum protection against even the most robust tunnel cleaning operations.
