Portable Variable Message Signs

Portable Variable Message Signs are commonly used on major highways improvement schemes such as Smart Motorway Upgrades or Pinch point Works. Our solar powered VMS-Small and VMS-Large can clearly display messages in all weather and can operate uninterrupted at the roadside. Capable of displaying up to 5 lines of text or graphics in colour. Our VMS-Small is ideally suited to use on road speeds of up to 50mph, ideal for city centre traffic management and events due to having one of the smallest footprints in the industry. Our VMS-Large is suited to 50-70mph road speeds therefore suiting it to high speed traffic management such as Smart Motorway upgrades and advanced warning signs. Our VMS range are all installed with 4G and Wi-Fi communications and can be controlled locally at the trailer or remotely via a web based app. Customers can remotely monitor GPS asset tracking and change the messages in real time. All VMS are available for short or long term hire.

Vehicle Activated Signs

Vehicle Activated Signs are ideal for hire within temporary traffic management to enforce any speed limit prior to entering temporary traffic management. Slower traffic through new road layouts or traffic management increases safety and reduces risk of accidents and queues. Capable of accurately measuring and enforcing any speed between 3-99mph, the high intensity LED display will operate night and day all year round without needing any mains power. Should any vehicle break the set speed limit, a SLOW DOWN module will illuminate to remind the driver. Enclosed within the trailer framework is a maintenance free battery and solar panel combination to stay operational all year round. Included within the SDT-VAS is a data recording module which will continually collect passing vehicle data to monitor traffic flow, average speeds etc. All data collected can be streamed and viewed remotely including live traffic flow.

Solar Powered LED Lighting Tower

Our Solar Powered LED Lighting Tower provides safe light working conditions for workers within temporary traffic management. Traditional Lighting Towers used within construction and traffic management areas are commonly diesel-powered units. This comes with additional costs for refuelling and onsite maintenance. As a result, our Solar Powered LED Lighting Tower eliminates all these costs by running completely from battery and solar power. Not only does this offer a large saving in ongoing costs but also reduces a sites carbon footprint by reducing emissions. By removing the traditional diesel engine from the Solar Powered LED Lighting Tower, this also remove all fumes and noises meaning it is perfect for use in residential areas. All of our Lighting Towers operate automatically by illuminating once light levels drop and turn off automatically once light levels increase again with dusk ‘til dawn sensors. Installed within Solar Powered LED Lighting Tower are remote capabilities so battery and solar voltages can be viewed on a laptop or smartphone along with GPS asset locations. With capabilities to run all year round without any mains power, the Solar LED Lighting Tower is perfect to run-on long-term operations behind VRS barriers or trackside within Rail works.
