  • View critical work zone "hot spots"
  • See and respond to incidents quicker

Details may vary from one design to another.

Retrokits (option)

Your message sign trailer is still in good shape? Rather than replacing your old unit with a brand new one, extend its life by upgrading it to the newest LED technology for a fraction of the price. 

Our retrofit kits are super simple to install and come with a brand new sign board complete with electronics, V-Touch Controller and a control box.    

*** Our retro kits do not include frames, wheels, axles, batteries, solar panels or lighting. ***

POST-MOUNTED (option)

All our trailer-mounted message signs can become post-mounted message signs. Using the same robust sign and controller as our trailer-mounted units, Ver-Mac's semi-permanent message signs are a cost-effective alternative to large walk-in enclosures.

Signs are equipped with clamping devices for pole mounting, or Z-bars for cantilever mounting. They are typically powered by a 220V connection, but can be solar and battery-powered.

Featuring our NTCIP-compliant V-Touch Controller, Opti Power Lens and JamLogic Fleet Management Software for optimal management and performance. 

With mounting brackets to support various types of installations, post-mounted message signs are perfect to use on the side of roadways or highways.

Enhanced Security for Anti-Theft Battery Box (Option)

Add even more security to your anti-theft battery box. This option involves adding a reinforced steel cover, which will be permanently installed on the box. 

A two-section steel belt is attached to the underside of the box, which creates a provision for installing a heavy-duty padlock on each side. This feature enhances security and helps further reduce vandalism and theft.
