LUX Solar road studs work based on solar energy, emitting light in a very energy efficient manner using powerful LED technology. This product is a Dutch invention and production and uses globally patented solar cell technology, where one single solar cell is used instead of serially connected solar cells. This greatly increases charging efficiency. Even on cloudy or rainy days, the LUX Solar road stud will charge efficiently, and the lights will activate once it becomes dark and function from dusk till dawn.
LUX Solar road studs are supplied and installed by Van Wylick. This way, we can ensure their correct installation and, if necessary, provide advice on suitable application. LUX Solar road studs are installed within the road surface (with the exception of LUX Solar 1); this method enhances their long life span and means that the LUX Solar can be driven over by traffic. They can be installed in asphalt, concrete elements and all other types of foundations.
For applications within the infrastructure sector, white or red LED lights are usually specified. For decorative and architectural applications, other colours are more common, such as green, orange, blue and yellow. The lights function at different settings: they can emit steady light or they can blink at different speeds. Additionally, multiple LED lights and different housing types/materials can be applied. There is also a ‘firefly’ option for decorative applications. Each model has its own field of application, which makes the road studs applicable almost anywhere (for example, on roads, roundabouts, piers and footbridges). Please contact us for more information about the different options.
The LUX Solar road stud stands out in the market because of its technical specifications and long life span.

Van Wylick provides a three-year warranty on the product and its installation.
LUX Solar road studs guide or warn road users in different traffic situations, and they are visible from a distance of almost 1000 metres.
They are widely used in the infrastructure sector in the following situations, among others: emphasizing dangerous curves, introducing traffic calming measures, and marking cycle lanes and roundabouts. Moreover, LUX Solar road studs are highly suitable for harbour and recreational areas, where they are applied on quays, piers and footbridges, and in parking zones and public squares. See the images below for an overview of other applications.
