Take the guesswork out of knowing the truck height

Bridge Strike

Knowing the height of a truck’s load is one of the most important tasks a truck driver must undertake, a vehicle height measuring pole can take the guesswork out of knowing the truck height.

Accidents happen every day but some are totally avoidable by having the correct safety equipment.

There are many dangers for truck drivers including low bridges, overhead cables, and on-site structures, so knowing the height of the loaded truck is important to help avoid unnecessary accidents.

A vehicle height measuring pole could help drivers who often change trailers which vary in height or when loading large objects onto a flatbed trailer to easily obtain the height of the vehicle and not guess the height of the vehicle!

The pole will also assist drivers when loading or unloading on sites where the company may want the truck to go through buildings or reverse into doorways to avoid embarrassing accidents on site.

The safety of a truck and its driver is massively increased when an accurate height measurement of the truck can be established
