Metro Full Matrix Message Trailer - Large Display

Metro Full Matrix Message Trailer - Large Display

Large Metro Traffic Signs with Full Matrix Display, Trailer, Solar, and Battery Powered

Our Large Metro Message Signs are compact and portable traffic control trailers designed for use in urban areas where space is limited. These signs are self-powered by a battery and solar energy. Metro Signs provide the visibility and legibility of other Wanco message signs, but with a smaller footprint. Metro message signs provide information to the public on a full-matrix LED display. The display can present messages as text, graphics, or a combination of both. Messages are programmed using a self-contained onboard controller, so an external controller is not needed. LED signs come with pre-programmed standard messages, and you can easily create your own custom messages.

For optimal positioning, the sign rotates independent of the trailer and its height is fully adjustable. Jack-legs and optional provide more adjustability and added stability. The trailer is easy to maneuver and deploy and can be towed by most vehicles. Power is provided by batteries, which are charged by an automated solar charging system. The trailer comes with a Standard 2-inch ball tow-hitch and removable drawbar for shipping and theft protection. The lift can be controlled by one person to easily raise and lower the message board. The trailer sign tower rotates 360 degrees for optimum message visibility.

Message signs are visible at a distance in direct sunlight
