TAYLOR MADE PRODUCTS LAUNCHES NEW LINE OF SOLAR WARNING LIGHTS FOR MARINE APPLICATIONS
GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. – April 2, 2008 – Taylor Made Products has unveiled solar-powered warning lights for the marine market that charge during the day and feature an on-at-dusk, off-at-dawn light sensor for maximum energy efficiency.
Equipped with three different settings – a steady-on mode, slow flash (15 per minute) or a fast mode (60 per minute) – these lights help mariners locate and identify docks, moorings, buoys, pilings, obstructions and other watercraft in low-light conditions. Available in red, white or green LED with clear lens covers, the units are cased in rugged, waterproof plastic for reliable operation throughout even the harshest weather conditions.
“With no electrical lines to run and no batteries to replace, the lights are virtually maintenance free,” said Dave Karpinski, vice president of marketing, Taylor Made Products. “These lights easily attach to just about anything that requires night-time identification, increasing the margin of safety by illuminating hazards that were once almost impossible for people to distinguish in the dark.”
