Impact Protection Vehicle (IPV)
Temporary traffic management on high speed roads demand good working practices. Impact Protection Vehicle's (IPV's) save lives.
Temporary traffic management on high speed roads is a hazardous activity. The selection of the actual method of work should be made by a competent TSO and should reflect the risks and site specific circumstances of the planned work.
The deployment and removal of temporary traffic management arrangements usually necessitates the presence of stationary/slow-moving vehicles and/or members of the workforce on the carriageway and this creates a potential hazard with high speed traffic.
The planning of such operations should seek to eliminate potential conflicts and risks by deploying an Impact Protection Vehicle.
They offer unprecedented protection for roadwork crews and maintenance vehicles in high speed traffic conditions. Offering the latest in safety technology Rennicks can provide total rental solutions nationwide, to customers who build, maintain and repair the roads infrastructure.
Used on their own or in conjunction with Rennicks' Mobile Lane Closure Trailers, IPV’s have been proven to:
- Prevent motorists from driving into work vehicles and road maintenance crews and work zones
- Alert drivers for the need to temporarily reduce their speed
- Absorbs collision energy during rear-end impacts
- Reduces the severity of impact for both the colliding vehicle and anchor vehicle
