Freight Products UK Ltd, the largest UK manufacturer of Reflective CV Marker Boards and other freight safety products, has introduced a brand new range of safety products for commercial fleet and haulage vehicles.
The three new product ranges have been designed to help commercial vehicle managers meet specific health and safety compliance regulations. The new products are:
• Wheel Nut Indicators: loose wheel nut indicators are small pointed tags made of fluorescent plastic, which fix to the lug nuts of the wheels of large vehicles. The tag rotates with the nut, and so should the nut become loose, the Indicator shifts noticeably out of alignment to highlight the problem so repairs can be made.
• Commercial Vehicle Health & Safety Pack: the safety packs provide a convenient way to access all the required health and safety signage that must be displayed on commercial vehicles. With all items complying with both FORS and Crossrail regulations, the packs include a range of stickers such as speed restrictions, legal capacity, ‘no smoking’, ‘seatbelts must be worn’ and other necessary signs, plus Fresnel Lenses.
• Torque Tower: the Torque Tower is a new torque loss and wheel overheating indicator for recessed nuts. The clever design includes an open top, to prevent heat insulation that can lead to false-positive overheating results. Torque Tower is available in two heights to suit different wheel trim designs, and so to avoid the product protruding from the wheel.
Stewart Fox, general manager of Freight Products UK Ltd said: "We are always looking at new innovations that will complement our existing range of vehicle health, safety and signage products. The new Wheel Nut Indicators and Torque Towers make it instantly visible as to whether there is a problem related to a vehicle’s wheel nuts. While, the new Commercial Vehicle Health & Safety Packs make it possible to buy all the signage that is needed for a commercial vehicle, but in one easy step."
