A newly-launched business is helping to create a safer working environment for construction personnel operating at the roadside or on a busy site. Inspace Media’s illuminated chevrons and safety signage use unique and revolutionary technology that dramatically improves vehicle and worker visibility, so organisations can mitigate fleet risk and overcome duty of care concerns.
“There is a significant threat to construction workers from vehicles and mobile plant, with many incidents occurring each year,” explains Alex Knowden, Director of Sales and Business Development at Inspace Media. “Our illuminated solutions provide far greater visibility when compared to premium-grade Chapter 8 chevrons or other reflective technology, so at-risk workers can be better safeguarded.”
The chevrons and safety signage maintain the highest levels of performance even in lowlight, night-time and poor weather conditions – such as rain and fog – without the same limitations experienced by traditional chevron technology. As such, Inspace Media can enable organisations within the construction sector to gain greater levels of vehicle and staff protection from site and roadside hazards.
Developed over the past two years and independently tested in the most rigorous conditions, the illuminated solutions use patented components and are less than 1mm in thickness. This makes the chevrons 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 possesses 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. We are already in discussions with a number of automotive manufacturers, as well as leading vehicle leasing and fleet management businesses, because they recognise there is growing need from building and construction organisations for advanced safety solutions,” adds Knowden.
