London-based waste management company Paper Round is installing the latest 4-way ‘Live’ camera recording systems to its entire fleet, to reduce accidents, keep crews and the public safe, and mitigate false insurance claims.
Stephanie, Prowse, Operations Manager, Paper Round: “The safety of our crews and the public is of the utmost importance to us, so we want to make sure our vehicles are fitted with the best safety technology.”
“Camera systems are essential in preventing accidents and the quality of footage is crucial when it comes to correctly understanding what actually happened in any accident situation. We decided to equip our entire refuse vehicle fleet with hard disk recording camera systems and went through a tender process to find a supplier. We were impressed by the quality of products and after-sales service from ISS so we opted to go with them.”
Paper Round operates a wide range of vehicles including 26t refuse vehicles, tippers, box vans, skip lorries, a toploader and a 26t Roll on Roll off vehicle. They opted for the new RXLite ‘live’ camera recording system from ISS on all vehicles and have also fitted the ISS Reverse Radar detection system and Cyclear Cyclist Warning Device on specific vehicles according to their function and where they operate.
Added Stephanie: “Some of our vehicles operate in built up areas where there are a lot of pedestrians and vulnerable road users so we are fitting Cyclear and reverse radar to these vehicles. Many of our vehicles are also equipped with reverse and left-hand turn audio warning devices.”
ISS designs, supplies and maintains a wide range of vehicle safety technology, much of which is manufactured here in the UK. ISS products include Cyclear™ (cyclist safety warning device), Reaclear (HGV reversing safety device), RXLite (live camera system), RX3 Hard Disk Recording camera systems, the LANLink remote footage download, reverse radar, Auto-stop radar and vehicle-tracking systems.
