    The whelen LIN3 or TIR3 is probably the only thing that is going to come close to that size. You might be out of luck.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    The 911EP series (http://www.911ep.com/products/tdwl.asp) makes a very narrow 3rd gen. LED light that can be used as a traffic advisor or warning device. We have one on the rear of our tower just about where you're looking to put yours. Ours is an all amber traffic advisor thats so bright that we cannot use it while responding as the units behind can't see! I have a line on a new all red 24" one if you're interested PM me. (TD/WL 24 is 23" Long x 1.5" Deep x 1.4" Tall)

    Default small led surface mount

    Where I work my regular job we sell ECCO lights they have a light that measures 5.8" wide ; 1.9" tall ; and 1.2" thick. Go to nhbragg.com and go to suppliers under "E" and link to ECCO part number is 3810A here at work for amber or 3810R for red. The ECCO series number is 3800. If you have any questions e-mail me @ d1_dispatcher@juno.com My name is Andrew.

    I think the " Whelen " Strip-Lite Led Series is the unit we are looking for, Last weekend at a parade we saw a out of town truck with the same unit mounted on the diamond plate. Thanks for the help !... NJFFII

    We just purchased an Able 2 (ShoMe) product for the front of our tower ladder. It was placed on the grill of the tower and was 26" long. The pods come in 5 inch increments, the flash patterns are customizable. We have 4 red and 1 green pod. The overall cost was $224. It isn't a LED-X, we didn't need sideways dispersion of the light we just wanted them to see us coming up on them. Here is a link

    http://www.able2products.com and go to the LED products to see what they offer.

    Ours was the lights by the inch

    We are using a new Code 3 LED, flush mounted into the bullbars, see attached picture (not mine though) I am not sure of the model number, but this might suit your purpose, as I am in Australia its a bit hard to know a local Code 3 dealer for you !! As you can see in the picture it would be lucky to sit up more than a few mm's.

    You might want to look at Soundoff Signal. They have some good LED lighting.

    Here's a picture of the 911 EP TL/WL-24 on the back of our new Tower. We were led to this light by ALF as it was "cheaper, narrower and brighter" than the Whelen units. It is defineately bright!! And can be configured to be a traffic advisor (left/right/stop) with one warning pattern(flashing patterns) or a warning light with 10-15 selectable warning patterns. To my knowledge they offer all color configurations.

    That looks like a " Nozzle " on a Aerialscope, how did you get ALF/LTI to install the manual gun?Also we have the same type amber traffic advisor on our rescue truck!...

    Actually we just changed the gun, but ALF/LTI said they'd put any gun on we wanted. We specced a Stang (the actual brand) which they installed but upon final inspection it would not give us the range of motion we wanted due to the handle and the railing , so we had it delivered with a manual handwheel gun until we could get a model that would work. This is an Elkhart Stinger with 16" stream shaper and stacked tips. As you can see the front face cut out isn't to pretty but the truck is a war wagon not a parade piece so functioanlity comes first!


    Like I said, ALF/LTI was one of 3 companies that would allow a "stick" controlled manual gun on the bucket.

    ACM - Glad to see that you found a gun to work in your application. That was the first thing that jumped out at me when I saw the picture - I was going to ask you if you'd found a gun with your required ROM yet.

    Would this same logic apply to full Battenburg blocking?

    It sure would! But my unit number is not quite low enough to force the change. The rear chevrons was not as easy as I'd have liked, but on Monday our first black over red ambulance with full rear chevron will be delivered so we're on our way to improving the fleet.
