2019 Exhibitors

Gold sponsor - Ingenie

ingenie is a young driver insurance brand with a big focus on helping young people become better, safer drivers.

By fitting a black box in the driver’s car, ingenie collects data on speed, acceleration, braking and cornering, building a picture of their driving style. Three times a year, drivers then get the chance to earn discounts off their insurance – just for driving well.

ingenie gives drivers regular feedback online and through the ingenie app, so they can keep an eye on how they’re driving and how much they’re on track to save.

Quite simply: drive well, pay less.

The Honest Truth is a national road safety charity working in close collaboration with police, fire, local authorities and Approved Driving Instructors to reduce the number of those killed and seriously injured on UK roads.  The project was created ten years ago in 2009 following a tragic, fatal collision in South Devon which killed three young people.

“Road crashes are the number 1 killer of 16-25 year olds in the UK. The aim of The Honest Truth is to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured on our roads through education.” Assistant Chief Constable Jim Nye, Chair of Trustees

Our method is to work with a network of Approved Driving Instructors across the UK sharing The Honest Truth’s unique intervention, coupling behavioural psychology with the innovative use of animal heads typifying risky behaviours, to deliver our key messages.

Solon Security is the UK’s leading supplier of quality crime prevention and community safety products. We have over 20 years’ experience of working in partnership with our customers to deliver effective solutions and are proud to have developed a reputation as industry leaders in quality.

Over the years we have worked closely alongside customers within Police, Local Authorities and Road Safety Charities to produce quality, innovative road safety solutions nationwide ranging from hi-vis accessories and lighting, to education and awareness products.

Last year, we officially launched our greatest road safety solution: the Defender Signal Blocker. This was in response to the recent crackdown on mobile phone use at the wheel and the increased penalties for those caught using their phone while driving, particularly young drivers who could lose their licence entirely. Since its launch the Defender Signal Blocker has proven to be a success with many Police, schools and road safety partnerships and it even featured on BBC News!

The Defender Signal Blocker provides a simple, convenient solution to the issue; a quality, scratch-proof mobile phone storage pouch containing special material that, when sealed, blocks the receiving of all calls, messages and notifications, without the need to switch off the device. This removes the temptation for drivers to check their phones whilst on the move, with all missed alerts appearing within 30 seconds of removing the phone at their destination.

Be sure to visit our stand at the event for more information and to view the product yourself. You can also request details and samples by using our contact details below.

Since 2001, Westcotec has been at the forefront of the vehicle activated sign industry. Based in the centre of Norfolk, we have grown to become one of the biggest suppliers of quality vehicle-activated signs in the UK.

Vehicle-activated signs
Using the latest LED and radar technology, we are able to provide effective solutions to most traffic related safety problems using light emitting symbols and legends for warning signs and roundels from the Traffic Signs Regulations & General Directions (TSRGD). Westcotec give a full six-year UK warranty with all fixed signage.

Portable signs
Portable, lightweight signs can be carried and installed on different sites by a single person. They are battery-powered and include a full 12-month warranty covering everything apart from vandalism, impact damage and theft. Extra bracket sets can be purchased in order to easily move the sign without having to move the bracket.

Interactive road signs: consultancy, installation and service
The installation of interactive signing needs careful thought and design. We can provide skilled, professional advice and guidance to ensure that clients are able to achieve effective schemes at best value. We can install and service your signs. We can repair and maintain other manufacturer’s signs, subject to survey.

Externally triggered signs
A number of sensors and triggers from external sources can be used to activate a set display on an LED sign. An example of such system is a low bridge warning sign to divert over height vehicles, as well as a flood warning sign which displays depth of the water.

Solar and wind power
Where a location lacks mains power or where mains power costs are prohibitive, solar and/or wind power is used on signs and systems. These signs are powered by 12V batteries recharged by solar panels and/or wind generators. These have a low-maintenance requirement and are vandal-resistant. If you are considering this as an option then a site survey is essential. This is provided free of charge.

Declared aim
Our declared aim is to bring the technology of the future, to today’s roads. In-depth discussions with clients on their specific requirements has enabled Westcotec to gain the most comprehensive experience with road safety systems in England.
