SYKES Safeway ‘Safe Stop Sign’ allows traffic control staff to work from a safe vantage point, out of the direct line of approaching traffic, and control traffic on the site in safety.
The Safe Stop sign is useful where temporary traffic control is required; the remotely controlled stop/slow sign system greatly increases operator safety and dramatically reduces labour costs.
The Sykes Safe Stop Sign is compact, robust and reliable. It is easy to transport, can be installed in minutes and very simple to operate.
The sign incorporates major safety features with a fail-safe system which prevents the possibility of the operator accidentally displaying a ‘Slow’ signal simultaneously at both ends of the work zone and in the event of any other fault occurring, the system will automatically display a continuous ‘Stop’ signal at both ends of the work zone.
The system is radio remotely controlled, the handheld radio remote control unit has a "single press" button mechanism, each single press of the button sends a coded signal that activates and rotates one or the other of the Stop/Slow battens from Stop to Slow and visa-versa. Each in the correct operating sequence.
Safe Stop Sign provides the operator with the capability to instantly display a continuous stop signal at both ends of the work zone to allow for work vehicles entering the traffic lane or in response to any emergencies occurring with in the work zone.
