Watch our video to see how we have tested them side by side, both the dark and in daylight.

LED Beacon:

  • Very bright
  • Light is refracted very widely, which means it spreads the light beam out over a very wide beam pattern which makes it easier to see from a wider range of angles
  • No moving parts or filaments to blow so it has a very long life span

Halogen Beacon:

  • The bulb is only bright where the filament of the halogen bulb is burning. This is then reflected out by a rotating reflector, so this tends to have a smaller "bright spot" of light
  • Driven by an electric motor and rubber belts that rotate the reflector
  • The bulbs are prone to blowing, which can cause expensive downtime
