An innovative rechargeable safety light incorporating the latest high efficiency LEDís in a unique flattened design that offers superior performance in terms of light output, flexibility and resistance to damage.

 

Having listened to customer feedback, officers commented that conflict situations, decamping from vehicles and use of other kit often resulted in existing personal safety light equipment becoming snagged and damaged.

 

Running down suspects dislodged equipment or components such as batteries and lens caps with subsequent damage or loss a frequent event.

 

Itís not surprising that these products have limitations, many are based on existing cycling products and use older technologies with bulky battery housings, large bulbs or first generation LEDís, bulky clip on lens caps and so forth.

 

Put simply they are safety light adaptations, not safety lights designed for the rigours of modern day policing.

 

What was needed was a fresh approach, incorporating new technologies and providing long term benefits to police departments faced with ever increasing demands and ever decreasing budgets.

 

Disregarding the traditional designs we conceived and developed the XXXX light.

 

Flush fitting modern LEDís in a semi flexible material meant that we could dispense with bulky lens caps attached on top of battery case..  

 

A low profile reduces snagging, dislodgement and damage potential, whilst the non-rigid design significantly enhances durability. 

 

What we havenít done away with is housed in a durable material cover so thereís nothing to fall off or loose, itís far better suited to resist the types of bumps and thumps an officer will encounter.

 

Mounting the light rearwards becomes practical, crush damage, wearer discomfort and dislodging clip on components such as a lens caps no longer become a concern.

 

The rechargeable battery pack reduces the long term operational cost of having to provide replacement batteries and removes the logistical considerations of re-supply.  

 

The recharging cable with USB connector can be plugged into any USB socket enabling on the move recharging.

 

The battery is secured in a pocket which reduces Ďspillageí events should the light become dislodged. Less bulky and lighter than equivalent AA or AAA batteries it will operate for 40 hours between charger (subject to setting). 

 

An added benefit is the green credentials of using a re-chargeable power source.

 

 

 

The latest LED technology combines efficiency with light output . With a visible range of up to 400 metres, it is in a class of its own and has potential to be deployed in a standalone capacity.

 

With three operating modes of Constant on, Slow Flash and Rapid Flash officers can select the most suitable operating mode for the working conditions they find themselves in.

 

The battery housing is positioned to help shield the wearerís eyes, acting as a visor and eliminating distracting flashback.

 

Adjustable hook and loop fastening plus a fixed loop allow the light to be utilised with existing equipment belts, uniform tags, D clips, hung from epaulettes, molle tactical vests etc.

 

The light can be utilised with the Klickfast docking system, we can also fix an optional docking stud to the rear of the light or you can utilise the Klickfast Stud and bracket to attach to the lights exiting fixing points.

 

The light performs so well that we create some accessories to allow attachment to In rural environments and with limited police lighting kit availability supplementary warning light sources can contribute significantly to slowing down oncoming traffic and add that additional element of safety at the scene of an incident.

Latest addition - the Knight†Pod Road Flare comes in a case of 6, is rechargeable and is a stand alone blue LED road hazard warning light with 9 operating modes with an amazing 40 hours of endurance subject to setting. The Knight Pod was designed after several police forces continually requested a long life, rechargeable battery warning light weight space saving alternative to tradition police warning beacons.†We list it as a road hazard light but this unit is ideal for laying out a demarcation zone for virtually anything, particulary useful†as a†helicopter landing light. Air ambulances and police helicopters often have to land in unmarked areas, the flare can literally be thrown out of a helicopter to aid the pilot in landing. Take a look and find out more about the Night Pod by clicking here††available as an amber LED warning light and green led warning light as well as blue,often referred to as led power flares, the Knight Pod is truly a mega flare in its own right.

Recent†addition -†Lenser LED torches with the world's brightest hand held torch the X21 Lenser and the P7 Lenser Tactical and P14 Lenser which are extremely popular with the professionals such as the emergency services, police fire service and military and security sectors. We have also added the Klarus range of torches, new to the UK the Klarus ST20 offers improved performance both in lumens 240 and duration 200hrs when on low mode. The Klarus provides an excellent alternative to the Lenser range of torches

The KB01 Knight Beacon blue personal safety light was†designed specifically with the emergency services in mind. Where ever or when ever a member of the emergency services is called upon to work in low light conditions, the Knight Beacon flashing blue safety light provides an additional road safety product that makes the user highly visible to motorists and other members of the public.Be it police, fire or ambulance services, the five blue LEDís advertise the presence of emergency services personnel effectively and at a very affordable cost. Particularly suitable as a police light it provides officers with another safety aid for use whencontrolling traffic flow on the highways, patrolling the streets as a visible deterrent to crime as well as providing the public with reassurance simply by advertising the presence of police officers on patrol.

Highly effective in terms of performance and cost the 5 blue LEDís provide an exceptional amount of longitudinal light. They out perform other police personal strobe effect lights and flashing lights that use fewer LEDís or rely on strobes which often require specialised batteries which increase the running costs significantly.

The Knight Beacons relatively low cost means that replacementís will not adversely effect the limited budgets of many of todayís police authorities. Using 2 x AA batteries the personnel blue safety light is economical to operate, easy to maintain and altogether the most effective personnel blue police light available on the market today.

Many police forces across the UK have adopted the use of the original Knight Beacon blue LED safety light with an enhanced equipment clip, the light provides even more flexibility being able to be attached to clothing buttons as well as uniform equipment loops. With fixing holes the light can be securely fastened to static objects as a blue warning beacon and with bicycle fixing brackets it can be used as a police bicycle light.

A Klickfast stud fitting option allows the KB01 to be attached to Klick fast docking units as used to secure the airwaves radio systems in use throughout the police and emergency services

Optional suction cups enable the light to be fixed to vehicle bodywork and windscreens, ideal for emergency situations where attention needs to be drawn to a command vehicle or broken down car etc...The optional bracket allows it to be used on police bikes allowing police cyclists to benefit from it also. By attaching a KlickFast stud to the rear of the light it will now dock with airwaves style docking stations found on most police officers uniforms.

Available with Amber LEDís for construction workers, professional vehicle breakdown recovery organisations, road safety officers (HATO), motorway maintenance, council workers, lollipop men and women - all can benefit from the added security a Knight Beacon personnel safety light can provide.

The KB02 multipurpose safety light kit takes the concept of a small but powerful battery powered blue police light still further.†The KB02†can be deployed on police traffic signs the kind which many police†patrol vehicles now carry. These lightweignt police signs are often made of re-enforced fabrics or plastic and with the accessory pack that comes with the KB02 the light can be attached either via the suction cup mounting or clamped via the two magnets that come with this kit. The lightweight nature of the light will not effect the balance of the police sign whilst it will significantly improve its visible presence pulsing with a double flash bright blue light.

Traffic control wands†and traffic control batons are a mainstay of our stock kept range. In addition to red/green traffic wands we offer amber banksman wands, red blue traffic wands for the police and emergency services as well as aircraft marshalling wands and batons.†LED armbands, Hi-Viz Armbands, Police lights, LED Chevron's and personal safety lights are the mainstream of our range and now we supply not only the emergency services but many transport and logistics firms, haulage companies and their HGV's, bus and coach companies too now make considerable use of our amber hazard lights and traffic marshalling wands - the list grows.†
