180424 New Demonstration Unit Brings Safety And Compliance Closer For Fleet Operators1

Durite, leaders in vehicle safety, lighting and auto electrical parts supply, have commissioned a new demonstration vehicle designed to bring their range of road safety products closer to fleet operators throughout the UK.

The Durite-branded demo’ van is fully equipped with a selection of the company’s latest safety additions, including DVR kits, 4G live-streaming DVR and CCTV kits, AI and Progressive Safe Systems, innovative lighting and smart telematics tracking.

“This is a great way to help fleet operators of all types and sizes select the correct and latest technology to ensure safe vehicle operation and compliance with DVS, FORS & CLOCS,” says Durite. “The release of the Direct Vision Phase 2 has proven quite challenging for everyone. We are happy to offer local support to our distributors and fleets, showing first-hand how our DVS Progressive Safe System operates and answering any questions they might have to help them navigate their way through the new requirement.”

“Durite have come to our branches to showcase their latest additions and our customers loved it! We all have the Durite catalogue and know the products are top quality, but there’s nothing like touching and seeing the products working,” said Dale Terry, Sales Director at HGV Direct Ltd. “Our customers can see for themselves the positive impact new technology can have on their fleets, plus having the team here means all the questions get answered there and then.”

On the road throughout the UK, the demo unit will travel from one operator to the next and managers can book a slot, with a minimum of one month’s notice at any time via the Durite team or by visiting the Durite website. The unit will also be on hand at many of the major trade events scheduled for 2024 – including at the Road Transport Expo, where Durite will be exhibiting on stand R45 between 4th-6th June.

“Fleet and vehicle operators already use our online Easy Kit Selector,” adds Durite, “but the mobile demonstration unit, now gives managers and their staff the opportunity to see each safety product in action and to discuss bespoke vehicle requirements with our demonstration team – all in one visit and on their own premises.”

Durite, a FORS Associate, has been supplying vehicle cameras for more than 20 years and has provided more than 50,000 systems to operators throughout the UK. An extensive network of distributors and approved installers service the whole of UK and Ireland.
