Truck Fuel Tank Alarm Installer Approved


Following the approval of a NEW TankGuard Installer This Week.

AE Teesside have sent through some new photos of the customer HGV & Tank Alarm Install.

Paul Loughran Transport’s DAF truck was fitted in an excellent time for a first install. Paul contacted aide automotive to discuss the tank alarm product as a solution to a continued fuel theft attempt on his truck, looking at the cost we agreed to let AE Teesside (a local tachograph centre) to install the fuel security alarm and become an official installer for the north east of England.

Tank Guard automatically arms after the ignition has been switched off for sixty seconds. With a sophisticated sensor fitted externally in a discreet location on the outside of the fuel tank. If thieves attempt to remove the locked cap, or jemmy out the sender unit or in any way attack the tank then the Tank Guard alarm will be activated. This will result in a 114 decibel siren giving a deafening warning to drive the thieves away.

Commercial Vehicle Brake Testing 2020

March 18th, 2020 Comments off

HGV Brake Testing Top Of TC’s Agenda For 2020


England’s Commercial Vehicle traffic commissioners report emphasising the importance of competent #brake #testing procedures for heavy vehicles.

Acknowledging that operators had been investing in roller brake testing, the TCs were pleased to note that this was improving brake performance at annual test.

“In 2017/18, there were almost 10,000 fewer failures for service brake performance at commercial vehicle annual tests than in 2013/14,” said the report.

“The biggest improvement we have seen is for trailers – in the same period, an extra 5,500 passed their brake performance test the first time.” However, while the TCs praised these “really encouraging” results, they insisted that there was “more to achieve” – not least because “brake failures are still dominating the top ten reasons for MOT failure”. There were 22,000 failures for service brake performance in 2017/18; and the TCs highlighted a range of commonly recurring issues relating to brake tests. One such issue was that of periodic maintenance inspection (PMI) brake checks being conducted on unladen vehicles and trailers with wheels locking at very low brake efforts; another was test printouts saying ‘pass’ where it was clear one or more brakes were not working properly. Operators and transport managers failing to understand the information on the printout was a further bugbear, as was the issue of technicians conducting brake tests failing to identify potential serious safety concerns. TCs also highlighted a general failure to grasp that the standards applied at PMIs should actually be higher than minimum annual test requirements.

Also, there are a great number of commercial workshops who are still of the misconception that all of the aforementioned brake tests have to be performed on a roller brake tester. This is not the case! The Traffic Commission has allowed the use of a DVSA-approved brake tester, like a decelerometer / BrakeCheck, for all non-MOT brake tests.

2020 The Year For Truck Auto Braking

February 19th, 2020 Comments off

2020 The Year For Truck Auto Braking


2020 is the Year Of The Back Stop!

BackStop Trailer & Truck Automatic Braking Reversing System is a modern hi tech reversing aide for commercial rigid trucks and trailers.

The BackStop system is an attractive product for transport managers to improve health & safety standards.

Reversing is often the cause of vehicle damage or human injury. Fines have been issued to transport operators for employee injury and high costs in repairs for simple low speed reversing incidents. One incident in 2011 when an employee received crush injuries cost the UK transport operator a total of £15,000 in fines and costs.

BackStop automatically applies the brakes when an object such as a concrete pillar or a person becomes an obstruction, or is in close proximity to the rear of the vehicle. activating only when the vehicle is in reverse and continuously monitoring at a distance up to 3m behind the vehicle, BackStop (Truck Braking While Reversing Product) will automatically apply the brakes if any of the sensors detect an obstacle, leaving sufficient time for a person to move or the vehicle realigned.

So contact us to discuss if Back Stop can reduce reversing damage for your fleet in 2020! – 0115 8456471 or info@aideautomotive.com
