Our Products

We provide a range of products including fixed and portable signs and signals in bespoke and standard designs. A large number of detectors can be used to trigger the displays, from radar for overspeed vehicles to optical sensors to determine vehicle height.

Our portable signs are battery powered and can be easily moved to different sites by one person. The flexibility these types of sign offer is beneficial in locations which suffer speeding problems in several areas, meaning signs can be easily deployed to target various hotspots.

Fixed radar activated signs can be installed onto a lamppost, or similar street furniture, and powered by either a mains supply, battery, solar and/or wind energy.

Data collection systems can be added to most of our products, from simple Excel format to ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition).

We specialise in creating bespoke products to address specific issues, so even if it’s something we haven’t manufactured before, these can be designed to suit your specification.
