SM UK Back Guard

Over the last few years vehicle safety devices such as extra mirrors or camera monitor systems with wider viewing angles have become mandatory. However, despite an increase in all-round visibility, fixed objects remain high.

Even a relatively small accident can be immensely costly to a fleet operator. Apart from repairs to the damaged vehicle, there is downtime and replacement vehicle hire costs to consider and this doesn't take into account any insurance or legal expenses.

"A company was fined £105,000 in September 2009 after an employee was killed by a reversing lorry at the skip waste site where he worked"

SMUK ultrasonic detection and warning systems alert the driver of potential danger. An audible warning informs the driver of the distance between vehicle and obstacle, minimising both vehicle damage and collisions with pedestrians, cyclists or objects. Activation when reverse gear is engaged ensure the system is only operational when it is needed and an optional speaking alarm can be added to alert cyclists and pedestrians of the vehicle's path.
