W|ECO Folding Frame Arrow Boards

W|ECO Folding Frame Arrow Boards are highly reliable, visible from distances of a mile or more, and employ a unique high-efficiency power system. The folding-frame design pivots the display panel up to the vertical position when deployed, and down to horizontal for transport. The display panel is held in place with a single support that ensures ease of use and prevents damage. Both 15-light and 25-light models are available.

Folding-frame design

For simple deployment, a heavy-duty winch with safety brake allows one person to raise the arrow board, and a single locking device holds the board in place. Constructed of rigid, tubular steel, all joints are welded. Bolt-on fenders can be replaced if damaged.

In the travel position, Wanco’s unique design fully supports the board without rear braces. As a result, it never strikes another surface during transport. This innovation virtually eliminates the damage that other arrow boards endure.

Eco-friendly

W|ECO arrow boards use Wanco’s high-efficiency LED lights and sealed batteries. Exclusive to Wanco, each LED consumes 85% less power than those used on traditional arrow boards. As a result, W|ECO arrow boards use fewer, smaller batteries than traditional arrow boards.

Smaller and fewer batteries results in greatly reduced lead content — 80% less, when compared to traditional arrow board batteries. Additionally, W|ECO batteries are fully sealed and will not leak or spill. Because they require no maintenance, W|ECO batteries last longer with fewer replacements.

During the manufacturing process, Wanco products are powder coated, not painted. Powder coating emits near-zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and nearly all over-spray is reclaimed and reused.

Finally, when a W|ECO arrow board reaches the end of its useful life — usually because of a collision (we have never seen one wear out) — nearly every component can be recycled.

Wanco Arrow Boards set the highest standards of quality and performance in the industry.
