Emergency Full Size Light Bars

Full Size Light Bars

Emergency and warning lights are a must-have for every emergency services vehicle, including police cars, fire engines and ambulance vehicles. Most of them are equipped with full-size light bars, which serve as the main source of emergency lighting. They are extremely powerful, versatile, and bright, and provide a high level of light output, making your emergency services vehicle visible and noticeable by passing drivers in both daylight and night-time conditions at large distances. With a full-size light bar your vehicle is always ready for any emergency that may occur.

Depending on the application and the type of a vehicle, light bars differ in size and feature different color patterns. The most popular color combinations are red, blue and white, as well as blue and red, which are commonly seen on police cars. Firefighters and other emergency vehicles also flash red and blue lights in times of emergency. When it comes to the lengths of full-size light bars, they usually vary from 40'' to 60'' and even more. A wide variety of sizes allows every driver to pick out the right full-size light bar for his or her vehicle.

While some light bars can be installed inside the vehicle, most of them, especially full-size ones, are intended for outdoor use and mounted on the roof of a vehicle. For that reason, just about every roof-mounted light bar should be able to withstand harsh environmental conditions, including exposure to dirt, dust, humidity, condensation, rain, and snow. To meet these requirements, nine out of ten full-size light bars are designed to be completely waterproof and made from the highest grade materials to survive the test of time. Manufacturers pay special attention to the way their light bars are sealed in order to eliminate any possibility of collecting water and dust inside the lights, which may cause short circuits and other electrical malfunctions.

In the majority of cases light bars are powered from a vehicle's battery, which causes extra load on the electrical system and the engine, and may significantly reduce the service life of the battery. To minimize the extra load most modern-day full-size light bars are manufactured with LED bulbs because of their energy efficiency and high brightness. LED light bars are up to 80% more energy efficient compared to traditional incandescent or halogen lights. This is because about 95% of the energy that LEDs create is converted into light and only 5% is wasted as heat. In addition LEDs last longer compared to other types of lights and provide even light throughout their service life. That’s why LED light bars are the top choice for first responders and volunteers.
