Hi-Vis Signs and Safety invented the automatically programmed flashing LED school zone sign back in 2000, and has been researching and developing of flashing LED “smart signs” ever since. LED school zone signs are installed at hundreds of schools throughout NSW and Queensland, and similar LED display and control technology is applied in:

  • Flashing LED pedestrian crossing signs
  • LED work zone signs
  • LED Fire Danger Indicator signs
  • Mining blast boards
  • Many more custom applications
In September 2008 Hi-Vis was awarded a NSW RTA contract for the design and production of a flashing school zone sign (Alert Sign) based on the latest RTA specification,  and are proud to announce that we were the first manufacturer to achieve the significant milestone of achieving “type approval” in September 2009. 

The design and testing process included a full battery of independent laboratory tests such as:

  • Vibration
  • Bump
  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • EMC emissions and immunity
  • Optical outputs
  • IP rating
  • Engineering
  • Wind loading
  • MTBF
  • Comprehensive Design Acceptance Test (DAT)
  • Production Acceptance Test (PAT) procedures
Hi-Vis is currently working on another RTA order of school zone signs for delivery in December, part of the NSW Government’s plan to progressively roll out this life-saving technology to every school in NSW.
