When are Visor Emergency Lights Better than Standard Light Bars?

When you are outfitting your emergency vehicles with lights and gear, most of the time the best option is to choose full light bar packages to put on top of the car or truck. But, there are certain situations when it might be better to choose visor emergency lights instead. You will find a number of options available for emergency lighting solutions, allowing you to customize your vehicle according to your individual needs.

Full Light Bars vs. Visor Emergency Lights

So, which solution is better: a rooftop placement or a visor placement? There are situations that warrant the placement of both types of lights, so you need to first consider the type of car that you are outfitting and how the vehicle will be used. If the truck will always be visible as an emergency vehicle, such as a branded police car, fire truck or ambulance, then it probably makes sense to use a full light bar on the roof. On the other hand, sometimes undercover cars can be used by highway patrol and other emergency services, and the visors lights are a great solution in these undercover situations.

In the situation where you need discreet lighting, you should choose small light bars that can be hidden away. These small lights allow the vehicle to remain unmarked when needed, but the lights can quickly be pulled out and turned on if the situation merits emergency services.

What Kind of Visor Lights Do You Need?

Once you have determined that visor lights are needed for your car, the next step is to evaluate the sizes, colors, and features that are available. You can choose from a variety of light bars that are sold through our website, and these tools offer many customizable features. For example, if you are outfitting a police car, then it is likely that you will want red, blue, and white flashing lights on the visor. On the other hand, a construction vehicle might need orange or amber flashing lights to use the vehicle in a construction zone.
