What is a Rapid Rectangular Flashing Beacon (RRFB)?

A pedestrian flashing beacon falls under the category of Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB). At Kalitec, we are RRFB manufacturers, and we design them with one goal; to improve the safety on traditional pedestrian crosswalk systems. The regular crossing warning signs do not use LED lights, which are extremely more detectable for drivers and pedestrians alike. Moreover, the RRFB system’s warning lights are more effective during daytime and nighttime.

The colour and flash rate pattern the RRFBs display or otherwise called WW+S (which stands for Wig-Wag + simultaneous) make them undeniably more noticeable even when there is rain and the roads are wet. They also are more distinguishable despite any headlight glare coming from motor vehicles or any other difficult weather or night conditions.

The Importance of a Pedestrian Flashing Beacon

RRFB on crosswalks have proven an increase in people walking more in their neighbourhoods and communities without any major changes in infrastructure. Since RRFBs have a different shape, a unique and rapid flashing pattern and brighter intensity, they can improve driver yield rates up to 96% and decrease crashes by 47%.

Sustainability and resilience

Our RRFBs are custom-made, and we design them to add beauty to street areas and parks. Moreover, our pedestrian flashing beacon is solar-powered and compliant with OTM, FHWA and Tome V (Quebec). Finally, all our RRFB crosswalks are designed and manufactured especially to resist the extreme weather conditions Canada is known for.

Safety with Rapid Rectangular Flashing Beacons

The pedestrian flashing beacons are designed with for many reasons such as:

  • Better road safety, allowing motorists to see better from a farther distance
  • Built to last, using resistant aluminum structure to resist the very specific Canadian weather conditions.
  • Easy to install RRFBs; the system can be attached to existing structures within an hour.
