Sign Board Rear

The Acklea vehicle mounted sign board has been designed and built by those with direct experience of working in live traffic. As a result, the ultimate design objectives – that the vehicle had to have enhanced safety features as well as being operator friendly – have both been achieved.

Acklea’s unique hydraulic system allows the operator to raise and lower the sign board from within the cab and whilst on the move. Not only does this reduce the danger to the operator but it also saves time. The vehicle mounted sign board overcomes the towing laws. It can be mounted and de-mounted in minutes with no more awkward reversing.

Easily changeable wicket boards allow the lane closure boards to be fitted from ground level. This is a much safer option as there is no climbing required by the operator.

Full cab control ensures the operator’s safety, avoiding the need to get out of the vehicle into live traffic to adjust the sign board.
