Higher visibility signs mean safer students.
SureStop’s patented design uses high-intensity LED lights to maximize the visibility of the sign during the day or night, especially during low light conditions caused by early mornings or bad weather. The alternating pulse pattern of the lights catches drivers’ attention.
Meets or exceeds U.S. federal standards
SureStop’s patented design conforms to both the standard and optional specifications of the U.S. Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA’s) Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) Section 7D.04.
An eight-month independent study by City of Phoenix in conjunction with the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety concluded SureStop’s signs are up to 75 times more visible than standard unlighted signs.
Both sign faces have six-inch “STOP” lettering and high-intensity flashing LED lights. (A Stop/Slow sign is also available for road workers.)
Easy to use
As easy to use as a standard paddle: simply hold up the sign and the lights turn on. Lower it and the lights turn off. There’s no forgetting to flip a switch.
Lightweight and easy to handle
The SureStop paddle has an ergonomic foam handle for comfort and grip, and is lightweight at just 3.0 pounds.
Long-lasting rechargeable battery
The rechargeable NiMH battery is designed to last roughly a school week under typical use conditions. A battery charger is included with each sign.
High-quality, durable design
All housed within a durable, weather-resistant, injection-molded housing, the LED lights are rated for one million flashes while the battery has an expected lifetime of 5-7 years.
Each SureStop sign comes with a limited one-year warranty.
The Washington Elementary School District is very excited to have SureStop crossing guard paddles in the hands of our crossing guards. The crossing guards feel safer for themselves and most important for the students while crossing.
I have personally seen these signs in action especially in the early morning hours and couldn’t ask for a better product to be used to make our staff and students safer. I would highly recommend to all school districts to consider using Sure-Stop lighted stop paddles in your safety program.
