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.
“We are on a mission to keep traffic controllers safe by removing them from the direct line of traffic into a safe zone”
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)
