AIRBAR™ is a highly effective visible vehicle (LGV or HGV) mounted inflatable, brightly coloured membrane with flashing LEDs that when deployed, increases the apparent width of a parked vehicle. Passing traffic give the inflated AIRBARs™ with their flashing LEDs a wide berth, thereby creating a safer working zone alongside the vehicle for the driver or operator whilst working alongside.
With a full AIRBAR system fitted drivers, using a small in-cab controller, can manually select to deploy AIRBARS fitted to either the nearside, offside or both sides of the vehicle. The full system creates Roadside-safe® or Compound-safe® zones, and includes Safe-turn®, the cyclist safety system.
Safe-turn® automatically deploys at under 15mph when the nearside turn indicator is activated and create a highly effective visual alert to cyclists or other vulnerable road users. Cyclists see the AIRBARs™ as a physical barrier and wait behind the vehicle until the turn is completed. The cyclist is clearly visible in the nearside rear-view mirror. Safe-turn® becomes the primary safety device in preventing nearside blind-spot cyclist collisions at nearside junctions as a collision is improbable if the cyclist is not physically in the danger zone.
AIRBAR™ is a British invention, manufactured in Britain, and won the Lodar sponsored Institute of Vehicle Recovery’s Innovation Award in 2019.
