This page features pedestrian signals with older WAIT lenses.
All of the pictures below are animated gifs and may take some time to load
completely, except for the first Crouse Hinds picture. It is a
static (non-animated) picture that can be animated by placing your mouse over
the picture. There isn't a flashing WAIT phase like most pedestrian signals in use today in the animations because I was told by a traffic engineer friend of mine that when the WAIT/WALK signals were in use, there wasn't a flashing phase so
these animations were made based on this information.
||Aluminum Crouse Hinds Art Deco Pedestrian signals with 8 inch WAIT WALK lenses.
Put your mouse over the picture to animate the signals on the left.
The signal on the right shows a lesser known variation in the WAIT WALK
lenses. These are red and green. Also, the WAIT lens does not have a
black stripe as the more common WAIT lenses do.
||Here is another Crouse Hinds
WAIT WALK signal. This signal has a WAIT lens that is all black except
for the letters which are white. This lens is seen less than the one
with the orange stripes and letters. This signal display works together
with the Crouse Hinds 4 way shown here. Put your mouse over the picture
to animate it.
||This is an Econolite Square Door Bulls-Eye signal with 12 inch WAIT WALK lenses by KOPP Glass. These lenses are not known to have been used in many places. I have been told by at least two people that they have been used in Hawaii. The heads themselves are not that rare, but the lenses seem to be quite hard to find! Click on the picture to see an Econolite round door signal. This signal is the same thing, except for the square corners on the door frames.|
||Eagle pedestrian signal with square glass WAIT lens and lunar blue WALK lens. The lunar blue color was not approved by the
MUTCD. Put your mouse over the picture to switch to a normal WALK lens. Click on the picture to see more pics of this type of pedestrian signal.
||This is an Eaglelux signal with 8 inch WAIT WALK lenses by KOPP Glass. The ends of this signal have a "fin" that is similar to the Crouse Hinds Art Deco signals. The Eagle version is much plainer than the Crouse Hinds version. Because of this similarity, I like to call these Eagle Art Deco signals. Click on the picture for an enlarged close up of this signal.
|This signal is one very hard to find signal! It was
made by Econolite. The neon tubes bent into the shape of the words WAIT
& WALK make it very unique! The back of the WALK section was painted
white which made it difficult to get good pictures of the WALK tube lit
up while using the camera's flash. The animation to the left was made
without using the camera flash. To see a lighter animation, put your
mouse over the picture. More pictures of this signal can be seen by
clicking on the animation.
