Sealite’s Ability to Tailor Products to Suit Individual Projects Impresses Customers

The ODOT (Oregon Department of Transportation) contacted Sealite USA who was able to meet and exceed their specific installation criteria for a fender light used on the Conde B. McCullough Memorial Bridge.

Sealite customised an SL-23 to meet the output required by the ODOT. The SL-23 comes standard with a 10watt solar panel and Sealite was able to modify this to a 20watt panel increasing the current charge to the battery which is useful in areas of low sunlight.

Sealite sectored the light to 180° so it can be tested for use as a fender light on Conde B. McCullough Memorial Bridge. Upon successful testing, more SL-23 lights will be rolled out. The light was chosen due to its efficient use of solar power and its ability to obtain the output required by the customer.

The Conde B. McCullough Memorial Bridge, formerly the Coos Bay Bridge, was completed in 1936 and was the longest bridge on Oregon’s highway system when it was constructed. In 1947 the bridge was named posthumously after its designer. The bridge spans 5305 feet and is a cantilever bridge that extends across Coos Bay near North Bend, Oregon.

What Our Client's Say

On behalf of Karachi Port I am pleased to acknowledge your good service and provision of the new SL-75 solar marine lanterns installed by your firm in the harbour channel at Karachi Port. The new lanterns are very feasible and useful and equipped with the latest navigational technology.

[Re: Sealite SL-LED Lightsource at LaCorbiere Lighthouse], We were impressed with Sealite’s solution which provided a modern, reliable and efficient light source whilst remaining sympathetic to the lighthouse’s heritage and significance as a local landmark, but most importantly to improve upon reliability and to continue its vital role in aiding the safety of navigation in Jersey’s waters, as it has done for nearly 130 years.

[Re: Sealite Wins Duke’s Choice Award for Java Technology & the Environment – Sealite GSM monitoring & control system]. The team at Motorola were extremely impressed with Sealite’s innovative integration of the G24-Java wireless module in their GSM Monitoring & Alarm System.

As one of your new distributors (Belize and Honduras, Waller Marine Belize LTD), I would like to express my congratulations to you and your people in providing reliable, dependable and inexpensive products. Formerly we were distributors for a Canadian made product but these were found to be too expensive for the market and also offered only difficult and complicated programming. Our first order of lights from you (SL15’s) took only four days to arrive from Aussie Land, when I opened the box they were still flashing. I tested a SL60 (white) for four days (steady on) before it required a recharge…remarkable. I will be placing another order shortly. Keep up the good work.

[Re: Installation of WindTalker for kite-surfing club], The WindTalker™ is a big success here in Cyprus, thanks to your after sales support the unit is now functioning perfectly.

-Christophe Meletiou

We choose to sell Sealite … this is a long story, well we treat Sealite as our own and the relationship we have developed with Jeff and Chris and their attitude and commitment towards growing Sealite to this stage is remarkable. We feel at home when talking to them and the staff of Sealite and this in turn gives us more security and strength in selling products in India.

[Re: Sealite Solar-Powered LED Area Lighting system], We chose the Sealite system for the Jacobs Well Queuing Pontoon due to our previous experience with Sealite’s product, its durability and construction.

-Peter Taylor

I just wanted to say thank you for the light and bracket Sealite supplied to Birkenhead Marina. As the other lights (old ones) need new batteries I will be replacing them with new lights from Sealite and the same brackets that you supplied with the light we received last week … Your product is excellent and the system of setting the light is good also. Thanks again for all your trouble.
