New partnership promotes work zone safety

The portable and temporary ITS equipment supplier SRL Traffic Systems, is extending its portfolio of products designed to promote work zone safety, with the launch of an exclusive partnership with barrier, gate and bollard manufacturer, Solar Gates UK.

The company says INSTABOOM solar/hybrid instant work zone protection barriers are a safer and more cost-efficient alternative to the traditional plastic barriers staffed by dedicated gatepeople and may now be hired from SRL.

The company says a well-established product on work zones throughout the UK, including SMART motorways and HS2 projects, INSTABOOM can be remotely operated and monitored by personnel with multiple responsibilities from elsewhere on site, away from oncoming traffic.

SRL is also offering the lighter weight INSTABOOM Lite that was launched this summer for use on short duration operations, including those on rugged terrain.  Both products are compatible with wireless GS6 height detection kits, and so can protect against overheight incursions.

“We’re delighted to partner with SRL who are able to offer INSTABOOM clients a rapidly managed service from its extensive, 30 depot distribution network,” said Solar Gates’ managing director, Neil Sampson.

“Work zone safety is of paramount importance to SRL – earlier this year we won a RoSPA silver award for ensuring the health and safety of our roadworks staff – and the introduction of INSTABOOM to our portfolio will enable us to help traffic managers to give a further level of protection to their staff,” added the managing director of SRL’s hire division, Malcolm Johnstone:
