Battery Power Supply and Back Up for Road Signs
Road signs play an integral role in keeping motorists and pedestrians safe, especially in remote areas. Using reliable battery technology to ensure constant power supply and back up to these road signs is incredibly important for decision makers in the industry.
The experts at Valen are your reliable, end-to-end battery solution providers. Our range of VRLA and Lithium batteries are ideal for use in a wide range of static and portable road signs, including solar powered Variable Message Boards, radar/speed signs, portable traffic lights, weather warning signs and traffic hazard signs.
We recognise the unique challenges and pressures you face in the road signs industry including:
- Guaranteeing uptime (particularly for signs in remote/distant locations)
- Reducing maintenance costs
- Maximising battery life cycles
- Overcoming potential installation challenges
To ensure your road signs always remain powered, we apply a logical approach in recommending and supplying our products. We’re not just about “selling batteries”. We’re here to answer your questions and solve your problems.
Our Process and Expertise
A major part of our commitment to excellence is to always work collaboratively with you. Our team strives to provide you with valuable technical advice as well as on an ongoing basis after installation.
During initial consultations, we will discuss the following details with you to determine which type of battery technology is best suited for your needs.
- Expected battery operating temperatures
- Design life
- Weight constraints
- Configuration requirements (monobloc, front terminals, combo cell etc.)
- Installation parameters
- Features and benefits of different battery technologies
We can also help you with system designs if required. Our experts will look at specific objectives and advise on which components will be most effective at getting the job done.
To ensure the integrity of a system design and that everything works together smoothly, Valen can supply the required batteries as well as any supporting equipment, including:
- Solar panels and brackets
Installation – Static and Portable Signs
We have extensive experience working with both static and portable road signs and understand the unique installation challenges of each type.
For batteries in portable road signs, particular consideration needs to be given to the level of vibration the batteries will be exposed to during transport on a trailer.
Minimising potential damage to the batteries in both static and portable road signs as a result of vandalism or a vehicle collision is also something we can advise on.
Once we’ve helped you to decide on the right batteries for your road signs, we will provide best practice recommendations for installing them.
Our Installation and Operation (I&O) manuals make it easy for your technicians to install our batteries correctly. Additionally, we will always be available to answer any installation questions you may have.
Servicing and Maintenance
Maintaining battery life is key to ensuring your road signs stay powered. We can assist with ongoing servicing, maintenance and testing to ensure your batteries always operate within warranty conditions.
We can also provide advice on how to extend the life of a battery out beyond the warranty to ensure you get the best possible ROI.
As our level of service to you extends beyond final installation, we can further assist with the end-of-life recycling of our batteries.
In keeping with our ISO 14001:2015 Environment certification, we can also help with how to best recycle old or existing batteries if you are replacing a current system with our products.
