    Traffic control essentials - the truck attenuator

    Published on 21 February 2019, Thursday, 4:07 AM

    Sometimes sorting out those traffic control problems isn't as easy as putting up that old faithful 'men at work sign'.

    Especially when your crew are mobile, such as for survey work, line marking or bridge work, you'll need something more appropriate for the situation.

    The 15 ton GVM truck mounted attenuator is an energy-absorbing safety device that can keep you and your team as safe as possible around work sites on busy roads.

    It can be used while stationary, and is easily shifted while you work, or intermittently to move around a work site as you do.

    It offers protection for up to 100 kilometres per hour, and has LED arrows, areas for speed reduction and roadwork signage.

    In the unlikely event of an impact, the attenuator is specially designed with a steel support frame that will progressively collapse. This allows the aluminium cartridges to crush, which absorbs the extra energy and ensures the offending vehicle comes to a controlled stop.

    For a hire rate for this attenuator, or for any other traffic control needs, get in touch with your local Kennards Hire branch.
