SM UK used a combination of safety equipment from market leaders in commercial vehicle safety solutions, Brigade Electronics and some of their own safety packages (which include HALO and Red Zone). The largest installation carried out to date included: 3 white and 2 Amber LED strobe lights, 4 lights & 2 beacons fitted to HiBar mounted to the roof of the Scania Tipper. Hella Jumbo 320 Clear Spotlights, 2 Hadley 22″ stainless steel airhorns.
For safety, a Brigade 4 camera system mounted around the vehicle in strategic positions to fully eliminate any blind spots. The real-time footage from this is displayed onto the monitor mounted in the cab. 7 ultrasonic detection sensors were also installed along the near side to alert the driver, through a cab mounted alarm, as to when an obstacle such as a VRU could be in their blind spot. To complete the safety installation, SM UK’s Red Zone safety system was installed onto the rear of the truck to create an exclusion area. SM UK wired this system in, in such a way that when the beacons are switched on upon arrival to a customer site, the Red Zone LED lights are also programmed to come on.
