Chevron and signage technology advances to 'transform safety'

Inspace Media is helping to create a safer working environment for people operating at the roadside, next to a live lane or at high risk locations with advances in illuminated chevrons and safety signage.

Inspace Media, says it’s illuminated chevrons and safety signage use a technology that improves visibility, so vehicle operators can mitigate fleet risk and overcome duty of care concerns regarding their remote teams.

The chevrons and safety signage maintain high levels of performance in lowlight, night-time and poor weather conditions such as rain and fog, according to Inspace Media.

Alex Knowden, director of sales and business development at Inspace Media, says: “There are a growing number of roadside incidents involving parked vehicles on motorways or main roads, often resulting in fatalities or serious injury.

“Our illuminated vehicle technology provides far greater visibility when compared to premium-grade Chapter 8 chevrons, so other road-users can gain vital seconds to safely reduce speed, give additional space and where possible move into an adjacent lane.”

Inspace Media believes its chevrons and signage can enable organisations within the breakdown and recovery industry such as; highway maintenance, emergency services, construction, utilities and logistics sectors, to operate more safely and responsibly.

The new illuminated solutions are less than 1mm in thickness, making it suitable for all types of fleets, as it can be shaped and moulded to fit anywhere on the rear or side of the vehicle.

The technology also has an IP69 waterproof rating and minimum illumination life of 20,000 hours before any light depreciation.

Knowden said: “We have brought together a team of printing, technology and automotive specialists, with more than 30 years of experience working within the health and safety, fleet management and transport sectors, to create this industry-first vehicle safety proposition.

“We are already in discussions with a number of automotive manufacturers, as well as leading vehicle leasing and fleet management businesses, because they recognise the need to protect personnel operating at the side of the road or in high-risk situations.”

    Impressive but totally missing the point. Drivers hit static vehicles because they are not concentrating - brighter signs and lighting won't help distracted drivers!
