Jenoptik wins ABC Design Award and German Design Award 2022 with TraffiPole

TraffiPole is a new housing system that enables more sustainability, better air conditioning and emission reduction.


With its new TraffiPole housing concept, Jenoptik has convinced the German Design Council’s jury: At the internationally renowned German Design Award 2022, TraffiPole was awarded a Special Mention in the Excellent Product Design/Public Design category for its innovative and functional design. Back in June, the new TraffiPole was also awarded a Special Mention at the ABC Design Award in the "Mobility and Innovation" product category. Thus, Jenoptik's Light & Safety division complements its range of housings and adds a second design-award winning housing for traffic monitoring systems to TraffiTower, honored with the iF Design Award in 2014.

Cost-efficient and sustainable solution

The new cost-efficient TraffiPole climate housing has been developed to meet both high design and sustainability requirements. TraffiPole fits very well into a modern cityscape and enables both cost-effective operation and energy-efficient cooling of the installed electronic components. The upper oval segment houses the measuring system with camera and sensor for monitoring speed and red light violations.

TraffiPole's highly functional double-wall design enables efficient air circulation, eliminating the need for air conditioning even in very hot climates. This special design helps to significantly reduce power consumption and thus reduces CO2 emissions of up to 1.74 tons per year.

In addition, TraffiPole is made entirely of recyclable aluminum and optional solar panels installed on the exterior contribute to additional energy savings.
