Concrete Mixers

PeoplePanel® for Concrete Mixers

Dawes Highway Safety works closely with a large number of concrete and cement suppliers nationwide. We have solutions to enhance the safety of both traditional drum and volumetric mixer type vehicles.

Concrete mixers are usually built to an off-road specification (known as N3G) yet spend 98% of their time on public roads and fall into one of the most dangerous categories of lorry.

Recent advances to introduce lower vehicles (known as N3) into the construction industry are underway but it will be many years before these become commonplace. Despite this, the physics of the side of the vehicle are very similar, so while vision is improved, danger to a person becoming entangled in a moving vehicle is still present.

PeoplePanels® have been thoroughly tested in all types of areas associated with the concrete industry, from mucky construction sites to high powered wash down units, our products have been extensively tested to ensure they are up to the task and robust enough to stand up to even the harshest environments.

It’s not just a sign,
it’s safety equipment

Research shows that a smooth flat panel covering the standard open rails on the side of a large vehicle offers significant benefits to a person in the event of a collision with a large vehicle.
