Reduce the risk of lateral collisions in the dark


Every year there are hundreds of accidents involving trucks (box trucks, tractor units, semi-trailers and trailers) on Dutch roads due to lateral collisions in the dark. In the dark, it is difficult for other road users to see trucks when they are reversing in order to load or unload on site, manoeuvring or driving along an unlit (polder) road. There is often not enough reflection against the sides of trucks and the side of a truck can appear as a big black hole to the driver. Additional LED lighting on each side of the vehicle improves safety.

Enhanced visibility in the dark

Banksman LED lighting from Labcraft has been designed to make the sides of the vehicle better visible to drivers and other road users when manoeuvring the vehicle in the dark. With Banksman lighting, collisions and accidents are prevented, thereby improving safety, increasing productivity and saving on repair costs.
