LED beacons on trucks

Truck beacons

Flashing lights on trucks make you easier to see. In addition to being more visible, LED beacons also warn other road users in special situations. When you are on the road in a special situation, it is wise to install a LED beacon on your truck. This ensures that you drive more safely in traffic. You are not always allowed to have an orange flashing light on your truck. This is only permitted in specific situations.

Truck beacons with the necessary certificates

LED beacons on trucks can only be used if they have the proper certificates. For on the road, the ECE-R65 and the ECE-R10 classification apply. The ECE-R65 standard means that the light is visible from 20 metres from the vehicle and from 1.5 metres from the road surface. The ECE-R10 classification has to do with the electrical systems. When a flashing light is approved according to the ECE-R10 standard, you can be sure that the light will not cause any interference.  This approval is granted based on two properties. Firstly, whether the light causes any malfunctions. Secondly, whether the lamp itself is sensitive to interference.

The entire range of LED beacons for trucks has the correct certification.

How can I mount my LED beacon on my truck?

The TRALERT® beacons can be mounted in different ways. There are a total of four possibilities. Each mounting method has its own advantages.

Fixed mounting

First of all you can choose the fixed mounting. This method is mostly used on the roof of a vehicle. You attach the beacon to your truck by means of three bolts. Because of the three bolts, the beacon is firmly attached to the vehicle.

Single bolt assembly

Secondly, the single bolt mounting. When you choose single-bolt mounting, the procedure is similar to the fixed mounting. The only difference is the number of bolts. As the name already indicates, the beacon is mounted with one screw. This one screw ensures that the beacon is firmly attached to the vehicle. You do not have to worry about this.

Flexible DIN mounting

Next is the Flexible DIN mounting. The flexible DIN mounting is a very easy and convenient way to mount a LED beacon on your truck. The light can sort of move with you. This makes the beacon even more robust. If you want to replace the bulb, this is also very easy. You can simply slide the light off the DIN and replace it with another one.

Magnetic base

Finally, the beacon with magnetic base. This way of mounting is probably the easiest for most people. The beacon is attached to a magnet, which makes it easy to stick it to your truck. In addition to the magnet, the beacon is also equipped with a suction cup. This makes the beacon even more solidly attached to your vehicle.
