INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR A SAFER FUTURE
INSTABOOM AND GS6 INSTABOOM
Instaboom is a portable, easily deployed, vehicle incursion gate for use on highway work zones. The Instaboom GS6 includes an over-height sensor, which automatically lowers the boom when an over-height vehicle approaches, an essential solution for sites near bridges and over-head cables.
It has been recognised by Highways England as being a compliant solution in accordance with Raising the Bar 7 for overhead structure protection and Raising the Bar 27 for traffic management incursions. With over 300 reports a month of unathorised incursions into road works on Britain's' 4,300 mile motorway network, the Instaboom is an essential product for road worker safety.
Instaboom has been used on various highways schemes, including the M20 Smart Motorway and over 100 in use on the M4 and has been found to provide customers with large labour based cost-savings.
Instaboom was awarded a Blue Star and Safety Initiative of the year in 2019 by Highways England, after featuring as an effective method of incursion prevention in the Raising the Bar 27 films, for traffic management incursions.
