Rennicks MTS – Showing The Clear Difference At Traffex


Date: 7th April 2013

New product launches and live demonstrations ensure Rennicks MTS will take centre stage at Traffex 2013.

The company will be taking an active role in the new feature at the NEC event ‘Lighting The Way,’ where a large, darkened indoor display will feature different scenarios to illustrate how retroreflective and directly illuminated products can help save lives by guiding the way ahead.

Within this environment, Rennicks MTS will feature its Active Road Studs, which deliver a safe, sustainable and economical method of bright delineation across a wide-variety of environments.

Trials are currently taking place on the UK road network to determine compliance to the performance standards – where the concept offers an alternative, highly-effective method of surface illumination – particularly in areas where street lighting is switched off during night-time hours or inclement weather conditions.

The SR Active Road Stud range has been developed to meet a broad range of requirements in different scenarios including cycle paths, bus stations, campuses, tunnels and many other locations where safety and enhanced navigation are important.

Rennicks MTS main focus at the show will be the launch of two new innovative products – the Tourist Gateway Sign and the MTS iWicket.

In order to provide a better sense of place, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the Department for Transport have worked closely with the sign manufacturing industry to develop new boundary signs that can incorporate photographic images.  This is a new and radical change to the traditional sign design process.

Plymouth City Council’s new Tourist Gateway Sign, showing Smeaton’s Tower, designed with the Department for Transport’s assistance, is the first Tourist Gateway Sign to be formally authorised. It combines the existing, recognisable brown tourist sign element with a full colour photo, digitally printed onto Rennicks Nikkalite® Ultralite retroreflective sheeting.

Rennicks, Plymouth City Council and Nordis Signs, have worked together to produce colourful and striking signs to showcase the region’s best features.

Finally, the new iWicket digital LED sign from MTS will be launched, developed to address RoWSaF working practice regarding crossing live lanes of traffic.

The sign has been developed in accordance with The Highways Agency’s ‘Aiming for Zero’ Road Worker Safety Forum (RoWSaF) Strategy and meets new guidelines that states traffic management should be put in place before positioning signs in the central reservation, to avoid road workers having to cross live lanes of traffic.

This is due to the increased health and safety risk created by large volumes of traffic. To meet these demands, the iWicket signs have been designed to offer health and safety compliance and reliability, under a cost effective solution.

Talking about the iWicket sign, Neil Newsome, sales director for MTS, said: “Temporary signs situated in the central reservation, warning of lane closures, had previously been created using manually changed temporary traffic signs.

“Rennicks MTS identified an opportunity to develop a portable digital sign, which could be used in the same way as the current product, but would be remotely operated and solar re-charged battery powered, and available to hire or buy.

“We are delighted to be showcasing this sign at Traffex, along with other innovative products including Active Road Studs and the Tourist Gateway signs.

“We pride ourselves on offering some of the most innovative and compliant Intelligent Transport Solutions in the marketplace today and this year’s show will give us a platform to show our industry-leading approach.”

Traffex takes place at the NEC,Birmingham on 16th to 18th April 2013.

As well as launches and demonstrations, RennicksUK will be supporting the event with technical input. Trevor Wren, Rennicks MTS Technical Service Manager, will joinGraham Hanson, Head of Traffic Signs Policy at the Department for Transport and Adrian Trim, Head of Sustainable Transport at Plymouth City Council, to discuss the subject area ‘New Developments In Traffic Signs’ as part of the event’s seminar programme at 12 noon on Wednesday, April 17.
