Inspace has delivery drivers in sight
A newly launched business is helping to create a safer working environment for delivery professionals operating at the roadside.
Inspace Media’s illuminated chevron and safety signs use technology that greatly improves vehicle visibility, it said, so home delivery and road transport businesses can mitigate fleet risk and overcome duty of care concerns regarding their delivery teams.
“With growing volumes of traffic, especially in urban areas, there is an increasing threat posed to logistics personnel making deliveries to homes and businesses,” said Alex Knowden, director of sales and business development at Inspace Media.
“Our illuminated vehicle technology provides dramatically increased visibility, with bespoke signage that alerts other road-users to a delivery, so they can safely reduce speed as well as pay added care and attention.”
Inspace said its chevron and safety signs maintain the highest levels of performance in lowlight, night-time and poor weather conditions – such as rain and fog.
Developed over the past two years and independently tested in the most rigorous conditions, the illuminated technology uses patented components and is less than 1mm in thickness. This makes the chevron and safety signage suitable for all types of fleets, because it can be shaped and moulded to fit anywhere on the rear or side of a vehicle.
The technology also has IP69 waterproof rating and a minimum illumination life of 20,000 hours before any light depreciation.
“We have brought together a team of printing, technology and automotive specialists, with more than 30 years of experience working within the health and safety, fleet management and transport sectors, to create this industry- first vehicle safety proposition,” added Knowden.
