Last year, the Signs Express product of the year award was won by Zeta Specialist Lighting for their innovative bespoke solar signage kit. The solar signage kit is a lighting system for outdoor totems and monoliths, incorporating discreet and flexible solar panels, LED embedded panels, light guide panels, long-life batteries, PIR movement sensors and Zeta’s patented intelligent PS800 control system.
