2018 spec Mercedes Econics fitted with PeoplePanels®

The latest 2018 spec Mercedes Econic for Tarmac is fitted with PeoplePanels®

The 5* rated truck has 90% better direct vision than standard tippers and the ability to lower its suspension in urban areas meaning it is closer to the ground and has a smaller crush zone.

This particular model also boasts a factory fitted ‘Side Guard Assist’ system to detect people nearby and give the driver visual and audible warnings in the cab.

The PeoplePanels® supplied and fitted by us are some of the largest we’ve made so far. They provide a HUGE continuous flat surface to prevent entanglement and reduce chance of serious injury if an accident happens. The overt (FORS compliant) warning sign reminds people of potential dangers around the lorry before they go near it.

We are proud to be supporting such a forward thinking company as Tarmac with their latest Econic and grateful to Mercedes Benz and Wilcox for their help.

Special thanks to Vick Croker (S&B Commercials) and Phil Oakey (Mercedes).
