While conversing with several Installation Contractors, the need for improved fixtures for mounting traffic signal lights was discussed. After reviewing the shortcomings of the previously specified fixtures and listening to the defined requirements, we decided to build a better mounting system. Initially we sketched a rough design in order to "visualize" our product. We then further discussed the design with contractors to ensure all needs were met and all problems eliminated. Our next step was to prototype the product. Once the prototype was approved, full production was a go! As such we developed a new Polycarbonate Fixture - Component Products' Post Top Mount (CPI-PTM-1).
This weather resistant, lightweight fixture incorporates the following new and improved features:
- Multiple head mounting positions
- Safety in a knockdown situation
- Close set mounting to move lights nearer to the pole to avoid turning vehicles
CPI's Patented Post Top Mount (Patent No. 5,964,444, dated 10/12/1999), in conjunction with our Side of Pole Bracket and Poly Mounting Hardware, offer reduced installation time, decreased labor costs, increased durability and competitive pricing. Our Post Top Mount is also maintenance free.
