Archasol, a leading supplier of solar-powered urban innovations, has recently unveiled their SolarEye solar-powered cat’s eye lights, ideal for a range of applications including cycling paths, walkways, parking lots, driveways, boat docks, campsites, and campuses. The fully sealed, low-profile unit can be installed quickly and easily without the need for electrical cables, trenching or any consequential restoration work.
“The possibilities are pretty much limitless,” says Janice Dobson, business development director for Archasol. “Asphalt is the most obvious application, but these cat’s eyes can be installed completely submerged underwater or even vertically on fence panels.”
SolarEye cat’s eyes can provide continuous nighttime lighting for up to 14 days without sun and offer 365-degree visibility with an optional steady or slow flash rate. With automatic on/off light sensors and a high impact, durable, engineering grade, polymer construction, the operational life expectancy of the product is upwards of eight years.
“Now that spring is finally here, people want to be outside longer,” continues Dobson. “It’s no surprise that these low-profile lights are becoming more and more abundant in commercial public spaces.”
What makes the SolarEye lights stand out from the competition is their 14-day autonomy, durability, and versatility. These lights were designed to withstand extreme temperatures and constant wear and tear from pedestrians and cyclists. Nearly anywhere a 3 ¼-inch wide, 1 ¼-inch deep hole can be drilled, a SolarEye cat’s eye can follow.
