Safety innovations will be prominently displayed at the Harrogate Convention centre on 1-3 June from over 100 exhibitors at Tip-ex and Tank-ex - the must-attend event for operators involved in the dry bulk and liquid transport sectors.

With protecting vulnerable road users high on the agenda for both the industry and the government, there are a host of safety systems on show in Harrogate.

Amber Valley Developments will be showing its LED message lights and cycle warning lights, its Nimbus dual-colour, dual-purpose range of surround lighting systems for trucks and the revamped Ecoalarm and Ecoalarmalight ranges.

Meanwhile, Trailer Vision will be demonstrating its Omni-Vue camera system, which provides a 360 degree view of the vehicle and features several calibration options to ensure it is suitable for all tippers and tankers.

For companies that operate in central London, Truck Align London will be displaying some of its lower passenger door windows to aid visibility of vulnerable road users, including one for left-hand drive vehicles. The window can be fitted to most truck makes and models.

Compliance systems will also take pride of place: Barry Napper & Co will be displaying its Bluetooth weighing app, which enables drivers to check the weight of a vehicle’s payload using their mobile phone.

On the Continental Automotive stand, the VDO Digital Tachograph 2.2 will take centre stage and the company will be on hand to demonstrate remote tachograph and driver card data downloading.

Maha UK will be premiering its MBT 7250 roller brake tester and MBT 5250 mobile, each of which can test axle weights of up to 18,000kg.

Elsewhere, VPG Onboard Weighing will be bringing its bespoke overload protection systems, including TruckWeigh and VanWeigh, to its stand. Also available will be its 1300 VUE360 BulkWeigh and WasteWeigh systems, which can be integrated with onboard weighing systems.
