February 22nd, 2021 Comments off

New Order & Customer On Board this week !

We will be working with @Trustseal to install a Back Stop Auto Braking System on the Trustseal Road sweeper.

This is the start of a Media Diary to see how the project progresses and completion to customer.

BackStop Trailer & Truck Reversing System is a modern hi tech reversing aide for commercial & mobile plant vehicles.

The BackStop system is an attractive product for transport managers to prevent reversing incidents & vehicle damage.

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.

ISOCheck Monitors A Trailer EBS To Prevent Roll Over


ISOCheck Prevents Trailer Rollover!!

Truck & Bus Email Focus On Time This Week. Truck Body Components is this weeks feature, aide automotive feature again….

ISOCheck can be used as a constant visual aide on any truck and trailer, especially for double decker or car transporter trailers.

Double decker trailers with a defective EBS system would vastly increase the chances of roll over or jack-knife.

With ISOCheck in place a driver or depot gateman would be able to see the RED warning light. ISOCheck EBS tests the ISO Socket 7638 Pins 1 to 5 but also tests Pins 6 & 7,”the EBS CAN lines”. ISOCheck is compatible with all electronic braking systems, Wabco, Knorr Bremse and Haldex,

Truck Hand Brake Alarm

Fatal Coupling Incident Prompts HSE Warning

The HSE has urged drivers and operators to take steps to prevent truck runaway incidents when coupling and uncoupling trailers.

The warning follows the case at Sevenoaks Magistrates’ Court on 24 May when driver Anthony Steven Smith, of Porthcawl, was given a 12-week suspended prison sentence and a 12-month driving ban after admitting causing death by careless driving and a breach of the Health and Safety at Work Act.
The case resulted from an incident when Smith was delivering materials to a roadwork site on the A21 in Kent. While coupling the tractor unit to a trailer, it rolled backwards into another vehicle, crushing 20-year-old road worker Dale Pentney and causing fatal head injuries.
A joint investigation by Kent Police and the HSE found that Smith failed to apply the parking brake of the tractor before he left it and that he also failed to follow recognised industry coupling procedures.
An HSE spokesman said: “This was a tragic and avoidable accident and HSE’s sympathies are extended to the Pentney family. Sadly, it shows how dangerous situations can develop quickly.
“These coupling and uncoupling incidents – known as ‘runaways’ or ‘rollaways’ – are all too common.
“Many vehicles are fitted with visual and audible parking brake warning alarms, and if they are not fitted, hauliers should consider retrofitting them to their tractor units as the HSE considers it reasonably practicable to do so. These alarms must never be ignored.
“Drivers must ensure they correctly apply the tractor unit parking brake before exiting the cab and then follow safe decoupling and coupling procedures.”
aide automotive offer a unique range of products providing the greatest level of protection available in helping to prevent roll away accidents caused by failure to apply the park brake (Handbrake).
Features
Audible warning: on attempt to exit if the park brake is not applied
Distinctive warning – avoids confusion
Handbrake silence: once activated can only be silenced by applying the park brake
Ease of fitting
Warning decal: reminds driver to apply park brake and instructs how to silence warning
All vehicles: fits all modern vehicles. Uniformity of fleet
