TAPCO (Traffic & Parking Control Co., Inc.) is an industry leading manufacturer that is dedicated to innovative manufacturing, distribution and servicing of traffic, parking and safety products.
TAPCO began manufacturing its own brand of TAPCO Made™ products over two decades ago. This decision has led to a wide variety of innovative and green products such as our patented solar powered Blinker™ line of products. Additionally, TAPCO manufactures, distributes, and services a complete A-to-Z selection of traffic control commodities. Since 1956, TAPCO has remained family owned and operated.
With a nationwide team of dedicated professionals, TAPCO can assist with all traffic, parking and safety product needs. Through this new contract, awarded by the lead public agency Barron County, WI, registrants of U.S. Communities will benefit from a full-suite of products and services to help drive efficiencies and make the roadways safer.
TAPCO’s U.S. Communities contract provides:
Whether you are looking for parking solutions, digital signs, school solutions or traffic and safety products, TAPCO can meet your transportation needs and keep your roadways safer. Many TAPCO products allow for additional componentized features and customizations to meet your unique needs.
Recent LED improvement, new regulations for 12" lenses, and solar power have made beacons even more effective and more versatile. TAPCO's new BlinkerBeacon LED beacon incorporates these new features at a low cost-effective price.
The RRFB system produces the highest yielding rate of all traffic control devices not featuring a red display, and is four times more effective than the common standard round beacon.
School zone BlinkerSign systems can be activated using solar power and wireless technology offering a low cost, low labor option. If you add the time clock controller option, signs can be programmed to flash a specified times, typically during morning student drop-offs, afternoon student pickups, and during special events.
BlinkerStop® LED STOP signs provide greater awareness for new, high-risk and high-incidence intersections where static signs are ineffective.
