PORTABOOM® System of work

What is the PORTABOOM® system of work?

PORTABOOM® is designed to facilitate the safe management of moving vehicles, plant and people. It is a portable, motorised boom unit designed to replace unsafe stop/slow traffic control methods by removing the traffic controller from the direct line of traffic and into a safe zone.

How does the PORTABOOM® system of work improve safety on your worksite?

Operated by remote control, PORTABOOM® allows traffic controllers greater onsite mobility to attend to other task like assisting pedestrians and local residents, check cones and signage. Meanwhile the workzone remains secure as PORTABOOM® provides a physical barrier protecting the workzone.

PORTABOOM® benefits

Reduces the risk of collisions between motorists and traffic controllers

Motorists slow down on approach to the worksite due to PORTABOOM®’s physical barrier

Decreases traffic controller fatigue

Reduces the risk of heat exhaustion, dehydration and sunburn during the warmer months as traffic controllers can operate PORTABOOM® from a shaded safezone

Lessens the stress levels on traffic controllers by reducing the threat and intimidation by motorists

As one traffic controller can operate up to 4 PORTABOOM® units at a time, PORTABOOM® maximises crew efficiency and minimises downtime.

Provides a cost saving of up to 20-30% per crew (cost savings are determined by crew size, project scope and shift duration)
