Park Brake Safety Systems:
Electrac NI can supply and install various cost-effective and maintenance-free solutions to give peace of mind that your vehicles are secure at all times.
Alert systems warn both the driver and personnel in the vicinity of the vehicle in the event that the handbrake has not been applied or has not been applied correctly. An audible warning will be triggered if the driver opens the door of the vehicle without first applying the handbrake and will continue to sound until the park brake has been put on.
A more sophisticated system combines an audible warning with the automatic application of the park brake without any intervention being required by the driver.
Access Control Systems:
These systems can be configured to allow, deny or restrict access based on individual staff approvals, therefore not only reducing the risk of vehicle theft, but also controlling unauthorised use of dangerous equipment by untrained personnel.
Cyclist Safety Systems:
Over the last few years, cycling has been on the increase, and according to official statistics by the Department for Transport, almost 4,000 cyclists were killed or seriously injured in Great Britain in 2017. Because heavy goods vehicles are consistently involved in a disproportionate number of fatalities relating to cyclists and pedestrians, there has been increasing focus by local authorities on increasing cyclist safety.
Electrac NI can supply and install a range of products to increase cyclist safety by enhancing cyclist visibility with your drivers and likewise, alerting cyclists to the dangers of commercial vehicle blind spots. Systems can include a range of features including detection sensors, cameras and audible and visual alerts.
As well as fatalities, reversing accidents also cause injury and costly damage to vehicles and property but most reversing incidents are avoidable. As well as implementing site safety procedures, vehicles an be equipped with a number of safety solutions.
Electrac NI can supply and install various reversing aids including audible and visual alarms and/or camera systems and detection sensors. These systems can be configured to either warn the driver or automatically bring the vehicle to a halt when an obstruction is detected.
