Labcraft, Europe’s leading Designer and Manufacturer of LED Lighting for the Commercial Vehicle Sector, are proud to announce their new Banksman safety lighting system has been installed in over 2,000 vehicles. The Banksman range is designed to aid commercial vehicle drivers by illuminating the region around the vehicle when manoeuvring, lighting areas traditional reversing lights cannot cover.
David Frew, Head of Sales and Marketing for Labcraft, commented, “Over 2000 customers have successfully deployed Labcraft’s Banksman solution reducing damage to the vehicle, keeping staff safe and increasing uptime on the road.”
The Labcraft Banksman lighting system can be installed at various points around the underside of the chassis and provides a bright carpet of white light around the vehicle. This significantly improves driver visibility enabling them to avoid obstructions in dimly lit areas reducing damage to the vehicle, to property and reducing the risk of serious injury to 3rd parties.
The solution is applicable to any commercial vehicle that is required to manoeuvre in areas of insufficient or poor lighting. Banksman solutions are simple to install and connect directly to the vehicle loom. This innovative solution can be fitted as standard to new vehicles or retrofitted to an existing fleet.
All lights in the Banksman Range offer Labcraft’s industry leading 10 year warranty which, in most cases, matches the life of the vehicle, offering true ‘fit & forget’ lighting solutions. All Labcraft products are exclusively manufactured in the UK and meet vehicle e-type approval.
Customers who have installed the Banksman system have found significant reduction in costs attributed to vehicle repairs and time off the road due to accidental damage. This has led to collaboration with Industry Bodies and leading vehicle manufacturers focusing on reducing deaths, damage and injury by commercial vehicles.
Temperature Controlled Units, Rigids, Trailer Units, Curtain Sides, Vans and Emergency Vehicles have all successfully deployed Labcraft’s Banksman solution reducing personal injury and damage to the vehicle and property, keeping staff safe and increasing uptime on the road.
Labcraft are also proud to have picked up the TCS&D Health & Safety Award 2016 for the Banksman Lighting Solution at this year’s Awards Dinner.
