Sentinel produces LED bike warning sign

Published:  20 July, 2017

Vehicle safety specialists Sentinel Systems have added a new warning bike sign to their Bike Hotspot system to help reduce the number of accidents involving cyclists and commercial vehicles.

The sign gives cyclists approaching the rear of the vehicle a clear warning that the vehicle is about to turn left. The LED Cycle Sign can be fitted alongside the Bike Hotspot system to the rear or the nearside of the vehicle or as a stand-alone product.

It works through sensors on the nearside of the vehicle activating the sign at speeds lower than 10mph. The sensors are linked to a choice of alarm, including in cab sounds, LED lights and external speakers that warn cyclists to move away from the vehicle.

Around 19,000 cyclists are killed or injured every year in the UK. And 20% of fatalities occur in collisions with HGVs, particularly when vehicles are turning left.

All installations of Sentinel Systems’ products are carried out by Sentinel employed and qualified engineers who have experience in vehicle mechanics and knowledge of electronic systems. The company’s engineers are also available 24 hours a day for any service or maintenance calls.
