The UK’s first radar safety panel
What is a side radar panel?
We have combined market leading side radar safety systems from Fonix into our own impact tested PeoplePanel® technology to maximise return on investment for vehicle operators while enhancing road safety for vulnerable road users.
Premium side and front radar systems are highly effective at detecting people around a vehicle on site or in an urban area and meet the stringent DVS 2023 regulations mandated by TfL.
The radar equipment is carefully incorporated onto our market-leading flat safety panels at point of manufacture to ISO9001 standards. This unique puts us in a position to provide two award-winning vehicle safety products that seamlessly complement each other, all in one package.
Why should I invest?
Transport for London (TfL) is clear that operators ‘should consider improved side guard under-run protection’ as part of the progressive safety scheme. It’s a logical step to combine a cost-effective physical barrier that prevents entanglement, dissipates shock and delivers mandatory ‘prominent warning signage’ with a market leading radar that maximises return on investment for vehicle operators while enhancing road safety for Vulnerable Road Users. PeoplePanels® are the UK’s leading flat panel safety system, recognised by the insurance industry and trusted by fleets large and small nationwide.
Most large vehicles over the next few years will need to be equipped with radar, as this technology replaces traditional side sensors and becomes the new standard for safe operations on UK roads. The introduction of front radar ‘Moving Off Information Systems’ (MOIS) and Blind Spot Information Systems (BSIS) are already being introduced by lorry manufacturers, however longer vehicle working lives mean that responsible operators with even recently introduced vehicles will be looking for cost-effective solutions for their fleets to keep them compliant.
It’s not just a sign,
it’s safety equipment
Research shows that a smooth flat panel covering the standard open rails on the side of a large vehicle offers significant benefits to a person in the event of a collision with a large vehicle.
Helps prevent people becoming entangled in the side of a vehicle where they can suffer serious life-changing or more often fatal injury.
Materials specially selected to absorb energy, reduce blunt trauma to a person and guard against acute injuries that can be inflicted by sharp edges.
