Safety of the workforce and general public is paramount in today’s traffic management environment. The Blakedale Crash Cushion Vehicle (also known as an Impact Protection Vehicle or IPV) is designed to protect the workforce in the event of a vehicle impact.
All of our Crash Cushions are fully approved to NCHRP350 level 3 and the 3-51 UK test at 110kph (70mph).
All vehicles come complete with a bespoke traffic management body which includes, sign rack, illuminated cone wells, handrails, anti-slip flooring and under body storage.
In addition they are all fitted with reverse alarms, reverse cameras, work lights, warning alarms and high specification lighting.
New vehicles produced post 2014 have been fitted with LED lighting, side scan and vehicle- turning- left warning systems. New body upgrades include bigger under body storage areas, additional load lock bars and dividers in the sign rack.
All vehicles are fitted with a vertical lift light arrow board which allows much needed additional storage space to be utilised at the rear of the body.
Although the majority of Blakedale Crash Cushions are fitted to 18 or 26 tonne vehicles with traffic management bodies, we also offer dedicated short wheel base Impact Protection Vehicles.
