Carlyle Bus & Coach Ltd Launches NEW Catalogue with a Range of Vehicle Safety Devices.
1st Jul 2011
Carlyle Bus and Coach Ltd and Brigade Electronics have joined forces to provide the passenger carrying market with the latest vehicle safety devices.
Carlyle’s brand new catalogue is now available with a range of Brigade products including white sound reversing alarms, camera-monitor systems, mobile digital recording systems, real speech warning alarms and ultrasonic obstacle detection systems.
Carlyle’s Marketing Assistant, Christine Danks said: “Customers will notice that the ‘beep-beep’ reversing alarms are missing from the catalogue. We have taken this decision because they cause a noise nuisance. Instead we have replaced them with Brigade’s white sound reversing alarms (bbs-tek), which create a gentler ‘ssh-ssh’ sound that is gentler on the ear. They do not create a noise nuisance and are even approved by the Noise Abatement Society. More importantly the sound source is instantly locatable, preventing confusion as to which vehicle is reversing, making them the safest option.”
Brigade’s camera monitor systems provide all round driver visibility and can be triggered by indicator selection, doors opening or reverse gear to provide the driver with the crucial view when manoeuvring. Camera systems eliminate the need for large clusters of blind spot mirrors, prevent costs associated with broken mirrors and reduce driver overload from having too many mirrors.
The camera monitor range can be connected to Brigade’s mobile digital recorder (MDR-304) to capture real time footage that can prove invaluable in court. Easy to install, data access is simple, yet secure. The lockable hard drive is easily removed for connection to a PC or laptop for data download. Optional GPS logs time, date, location and speed, which can provide information in the case of a claim or accident.
Brigade’s Backscan ultrasonic obstacle detection systems are ideal for vehicles that need to manoeuvre in tight spaces such as residential streets or near parked vehicles. Backscan detects objects and people in the vehicles path, providing audible warnings to the driver.
Brigade’s Marketing Director, Tom Brett said: “We are excited about working with Carlyle Bus and Coach Ltd as their expertise of the market combined with our quality reliable systems will enable us to meet the needs of customers and provide intuitive solutions to their safety requirements.”
