I am sure everyone has seen and heard of
road studs, especially at night. Road studs could also go by the name of cat
eyes, road studs or road marking studs.
You will see road studs are on all the roads, whether it is on the free-way or
just normal local roads.
At night time there is a row of studs along
the sides and edges and also along the lines, to distinguish the different
lanes. Road studs come in different colours and shapes. The ones that will be
focused today is solar studs.
What are Road Studs?
marking studs are reflectors on the sides of the
road to light all roads up at night. Road studs are there so that people can
distinguish which lane is which, and where the edges are on the roads. Studs
are used to indicate one-way roads, lanes, and yellow lanes.
When road studs are lit up at night, they
look very attractive. Road studs come in different colours, but it depends on
which colour coding system the country has. Road marking studs usually come in red, yellow, green, blue, orange
I’m sure everyone has driven over road
studs before. Road studs are also called cat-eyes.
Solar Studs and Their Advantages
Instead of a reflector stud, there is solar
studs that will charge up during the day via the sun. This will then last
during the night time. Below are some advantages of solar studs.
High brightness – solar studs are much
brighter than normal reflector studs. Because they are brighter, they can be
separated further apart from each other. Thus you will need fewer of them.
Economical – solar studs do not need any
electrical source. They have their own rechargeable batteries in them, which
will be charged up via the sun during the day. When charged up, it will last
during the night whether there is electric supply or not.
Less accidents – solar studs are bright;
hence drivers would be able to see more clearly no matter the weather
conditions. LED lights shine through, this will let your drivers be aware of
weather hazards in advance. Solar studs flicker in some areas for warning of
bends or sharp corners.
Safety – solar studs are very safe, as they
are bright for drivers to see. Solar studs are seen during whatever weather
conditions. People can clearly see the roads, thus reducing accidents.
