Construction

The construction sector covers a variety of activities  from building hospitals to major infrastructure projects such as Smart Motorways.

These activities use a wide range of mobile plant and managing the vehicle - personnel interface is a major task.

SiteZone PWS can be used on all vehicles commonly found on construction sites and has been used across the whole spectrum of activities within the construction industry by leading contractors on some of the highest profile projects in the UK:

  • Anfield Stadium Redevelopment
  • Royal Liverpool Hospital
  • Midland Metropolitan Hospital
  • Dawlish 2014 post storm repairs
  • Crossrail
  • Smart motorways

 

SiteZone products used in construction

The SiteZone EasyFit system is our most popular system within the construction sector and it can be installed in less than 30 minutes in most instances. The product is available for purchase or can be hired through our hire partner ESS Safeforce

Forward tipping dumpers are one of the main workhorses of the construction industry, we have worked with a major construction company to produce a solution specifically for these vehicles. 

BucketZone is a ruggedised sensor that creates a secondary zone around the working equipment of a machine. This makes it useful in certain applications and on machines such as excavators and loading shovels.

The dual antenna SiteZone is designed for larger site vehicles such as articulated dump trucks and mobile cranes.

The zone selector allows for two preset ranges to be set on installation, this can be useful in applications where a vehicle works in different environments. The zone can be changed via a supervisor key switch or in some cases using certain machine functions such as the lever lock (deadman's handle) or handbrake.

The SiteZone Limiter produces a "null zone" which "hides" SiteZone tag wearers from detection by the SiteZone system. This is useful for personnel who are less vulnerable such as those travelling in support vehicles or in areas segregated from moving plant and designated safe zones.

A wireless proximity warning solution for easy, instant fit. The iNstant product was designed for transient site vehicles such as delivery vehicles or vehicles on very short term hire. The addition of the iNstant remote display (iRD) makes the Site iNstant ideal for vehicles such as MEWPS where a wired system cannot be used. The iNstant can also be used to create exclusion zones.
