Developed by Solar Bright in New Zealand, the PATeye is a solar powered ice detection stud that warns against freezing hazards on a variety of surfaces including roads, pathways, railway lines, and airport runways.
An adaptation of the common ‘catseye’, the PATeye is a unique device with safety-enhancing capabilities that provide a real-time visual warning system in a raised solar powered pavement marker (RPM), detecting the likelihood of frost development on all types of roading material and surfaces.
The PATeye is a self-contained reflective marker and warning system that is triggered when the ground temperature and other monitored characteristics reaches a level that results in frost formation, illuminating the road and drawing attention to the potential danger of black ice. The sustainable device charges itself by solar panel during daylight hours while still functioning, even when there is heavy cloud cover.
Solar Bright produces three PATeye designs for different applications.
Warranty 12 months from date of shipment.
The silver standard PATeye replaces a common 'catseye' on most roading surfaces.
The snow-ploughable cylindrical PATeye sits flush with the road surface, suitable for use in areas that experience heavy snowfall.
