Installations / Fleet Vehicle Safety / Low Bridge Warning Systems
When driving an HGV or other large vehicle, one of the common road hazards you encounter is a low bridge. While most of these have warning signs and height designations displayed, it’s not always possible to judge the gap accurately. Bridge strikes account for more than 2,000 accidents per year on British roads. Not only do they cause considerable damage to the vehicle involved, but they are also a risk to other road users in the vicinity, due to flying debris and the vehicle in question coming to a sudden stop. Furthermore, since they often block the space underneath the bridge until they can be recovered, such collisions cause major delays.
For this reason, low-bridge warning systems are much in demand among fleet operators across the UK. Connected to your on-board GPS navigation system, they provide an audible warning to the driver when approaching a bridge that is too low for their vehicle. This alerts the driver in plenty of time to stop and plan an alternate route.
We have been fitting road safety technology into fleet vehicles for over 25 years and have fitted thousands of low bridge warning systems for customers across the UK. This is what you can expect from us:
We install low-bridge warning systems to the highest possible standard to ensure optimal accuracy and safety for your drivers. This includes syncing them up with the vehicle’s onboard GPS and testing that the setup works as intended before handing it over.
Low-bridge warning systems can last for decades with the right care and attention. We provide regular servicing for all your in-vehicle technology, making sure that your equipment operates as it should throughout its service life. We also perform repairs and replacements as needed, thanks to our local teams of experienced engineers stationed across the country.
We provide a whole-life service for all low bridge warning systems. If your vehicle reaches the end of its useful life, that doesn’t mean that your safety technology must follow suit. We remove serviceable low-bridge warning systems from decommissioned vehicles, ready for another installation. We can also store the systems at our own facility if your new fleet vehicle isn’t ready for installation.
