Systems provide safety when backing up
May 1, 2005 12:00 PM
SafetyStop back-up systems are provided for all types of commercial vehicles and buses. A recent report from a user confirmed that the SafetyStop system activated and stopped the vehicle as it was about to back into a person working in a yard. Damage reduction is greatly reduced, and some companies report a payback within 14 months of the Sentinel system being installed.
Systems can be manufactured to suit a customer's need. Multiple sensors can be installed to cover both top and bottom of the vehicle's rear. Systems fit all vehicles from small vans up to heavy commercials. On air-braked vehicles, the Sentinel system applies the vehicle's brakes for three seconds if an obstruction is within 1,000 mm. The brakes are then released and the vehicle can continue reversing. This allows minimum damage when approaching loading docks and buildings.
The SafetyStop Defender system is used on maintenance vehicles that require protection from rear end impacts. A rubber bumper causes the brakes to be applied when impacted.
SafetyStop has developed its systems so that the ultrasonic sensors and rubber bumpers are more efficient and very reliable. All Safetystop systems can be built to comply with regulations and can be fitted to tankers.
