New Brite-Strike® LED Active Illumination™ Traffic Safety Gloves Provide Life-Saving Protection for Police Officers Directing Traffic at Night
Plymouth, MA—June 30, 2010 – “The National Safety Council recently determined that the nation’s interstate highways and main roads between midnight and 3am are the most dangerous for police offices and state troopers directing traffic around accidents or construction sites.” said Glenn Bushee, President, Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination Products, Inc. http://brite-strike.com (pinksheets BSTK).
“To help officers, troopers and other public safety workers survive in these dark and dangerous conditions, Brite-Strike has available for shipping our revolutionary LED Active Illumination ™ Traffic Safety Gloves. LED Active Illumination™ gloves actually provide a light source behind the special plastic reflective surface. Currently traffic vests and jackets have reflective material that provides passive reflectivity, meaning that until a light source such as a vehicle’s headlights hit the surface, they do not provide any safety to the officer. The LED Active Illumination™ has a super thin LED light and battery that provides illumination up to ¼ mile away. The special surface enhances the light output from the LED and also has “passive” reflectivity. The LED light strip is thinner than a driver’s license and has three options; fast blinking, slow blinking and steady on,” Mr. Bushee continued.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer a product that has the potential to save police officers from serious injury just in time for the Fourth of July festivities, when officers are often directing traffic on foot patrol,” Bushee further stated.
The gloves are made with a material that is lightweight and breathable material, making it comfortable to wear in the heat of summer.
“Today’s cruiser and fire engine lights are so intense that a driver unconsciously looks to that light source and becomes almost transfixed. An officer or highway worker standing next to a cruiser may be almost invisible, and is certainly no match for a rapidly moving vehicle. The new LED Active Illumination™ Traffic Safety Gloves from Brite-Strike® flash the internationally-recognized signs for STOP or GO, red and green respectively,” Bushee said.
Until the advent LED Active Illumination™ traffic safety equipment has relied on reflective surfaces. The LED light source is approximately the size and thickness of a band-aid, and lasts for 40 hours. The thinness still allows the wearer full dexterity. The LED Active Illumination Traffic Safety Gloves are available in large and extra-large sizes to fit most applications. Retail cost is $49.99 per pair, including eight easily replaceable illumination devices. The LED light strips simply slip into a pocket under the Red “STOP” sign on the palm side and the Green “GO” strips on the backhand. The gloves are highly effective at night and readily catch the attention of a driver.
“Tested for the past six months by a number of police officers on the South Shore, we had hundreds of drivers roll down their windows and comment on how effective these gloves were,” stated Bushee.
The Company has a second related product for use by police bike and motorcycle patrols that use blue or red LED Light Strips and have padded palms and non-slip grip.
This product is also available for the average citizen for cycling, jogging, dog walking, or walking at night for $39.99 with four “Caution Yellow” LED Light Strips.
