Solar Gates UK launches INSTABOOM Lite

Solar Gates UK has announced the launch of its new product INSTABOOM Lite. The portable worksite barrier is the little brother of the award winning INSTABOOM but lighter and more suited to short duration traffic management.

The company says the INSTABOOM Lite is just as rugged, just as compliant, just as
feature rich as the original INSTABOOM. “Lite in weight, not in features,” says the company.

The Lite is still solar hybrid powered, is fully mobile and provides instant demarcation for the worksite.

INSTABOOM Lite is designed and manufactured by Solar Gates UK is:

*PORTABLE – at just 48kgs it’s perfect for a 2 person lift
*RUGGED – designed for uneven worksite terrain and use
*QUICK – deployed in under 1 minute.
*SAFE – provides a quick and easy safety buffer zone for road workers
*CONTROLLED – supplied with a rugged radio fob can be upgraded to intercom/keycode/call to open
*COMPATABLE – with the NEW Wireless GS6 providing, rapid over height strike protection.
*TELEMATICS – as standard, making sure your fleet runs at optimal performance
*SOLAR – hybrid solar/110V top up provides 7 days run time between charging

Having completed successful trials on the M25 with Connect Plus and Balfour Beatty, the INSTABOOM Lite has already proved to be a successful addition to range of barriers offered by Solar Gates UK. Dale Hicks, Traffic Manager and Technical Officer said: “Using INSTABOOM Lite on the full closures of the M25 was quicker to deploy than a traditional setup and vastly improved site control, safety and compliance.”

Neil Sampson, Managing Director of Solar Gates UK and the man behind the new INSTABOOM Lite said: “The huge success of our INSTBAOOM, SOSEC and GS6 protection barriers in improving site safety, efficiency and workforce protection has been evident for some years now. But client feedback told us there was a need for an even more portable anti-incursion barrier. One that would provide all the hard wearing, safety benefits and remote monitoring of INSTABOOM – but be suitable for smaller, more agile crews. One that could transported without a tail-lift or trailer, just a medium sized van. In our usual way, we made it happen and are proud to launch this exciting, lite weight addition to the INSTABOOM range”.
