Recycling services, Wastesavers, has recently worked with Sentinel Systems to improve the safety of its recycling vehicles in Newport.

Wastesavers work in partnership with Newport City Council to provide kerbside recycling services to local people and businesses. Sentinel Systems was specified for the installation by vehicle providers, Romaquip in order to provide Wastesavers with safety tools for drivers when on the road. Sentinel’s products offered Wastesavers fully-protective camera systems for its vehicles to help the prevention of accidents in busy and public areas within Newport.

Sentinel Systems supplied and installed 360-degree camera systems to 18 of Wastesavers recycling vehicles. The company was chosen over its competitors as a result of their cost efficient and high quality camera safety systems.

Recycling and Health and Safety Manager, Ian Syms commented, “As an award-winning recycling business running in partnership with Newport City Council, we know how important it is for our drivers to have safety equipment as part of their vehicles. Sentinel’s cameras offer a full, 360-degree view of our 12-tonne recycling vehicles which is such a help for our drivers who, as part of our operation, have to drive in congested and small highway areas.”

He continued, “Sentinel’s camera and safety systems have proved very advantageous to our drivers, and the systems have already been beneficial in proving numerous false claims in many of our vehicles. We would definitely consider installing more of Sentinel’s camera systems on further recycling vehicles in the future.”

Sentinel’s 360-degree surround view camera systems offer the complete coverage of vehicles such as large trucks. These can be combined with Sentinel’s 4 or 8-channel DVRs, whereby drivers can record up to 30 days of footage from the surround view cameras ensuring any accidents can be dealt with using the camera footage. Inside the vehicle, a 7 inch in-cab monitor is installed with high image clarity so objects around the vehicle can always be clearly seen by drivers. The cameras not only reduce the risk of damage to the vehicle, but also lower the risks of injury to personnel.

Sentinel Systems provide high quality but cost effective vehicle safety products suitable for a range of vehicles, from road sweepers to large trucks. As the leading choice for many sectors, including logistics, waste management and food retailing, Sentinel is dedicated to manufacturing life-protecting products that is backed by great customer service.
