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.
Wanco 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, Wanco 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, Wanco batteries are fully sealed and will not leak or spill. Because they require no maintenance, Wanco 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 Wanco 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.
