Information Display Company launches new durable radar speed trailer

Information Display Company has unveiled a speed display trailer that is claimed to set new standards in durability, portability and ease of use. The SpeedCheck DuraTrailer is the result of a complete rethinking of traditional speed trailer design and represents the first significant breakthrough in radar speed trailer construction in more than 20 years. The new trailer – which is completely MUTCD (Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices) and NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) compliant – offers a variety of new design features that address the durability and ease-of-use concerns typically associated with other speed trailers.

It features a unique high-strength one-piece molded cover, hot-dip-galvanized frame and high-grade wiring harness to ensure decades of rust-free, trouble-free service. Its lightweight construction and distributed balance design makes the speed trailer simple to maneuver and easy to set up. The trailer’s distinctive offset design and high-mounted sign increases its effectiveness by maximizing the display’s visibility. Its very low body profile eliminates the dangers associated with traditional speed trailers that hide pedestrians and workers from the view of approaching drivers. Once deployed, the batteries can keep a radar speed sign or other traffic display running for up to eight weeks without a recharge.

The trailer is designed to work with any SpeedCheck radar speed sign, variable speed limit sign or intelligent information sign from the Information Display Company. It is the only speed trailer system that allows users to quickly change from one sign type to another or switch signs between the speed trailer, portable stand or fixed pole mounting. “We’ve found that DOT and Police Departments often don’t get the safety improvements they hoped for with other trailers, simply because they are too difficult to use and are therefore left back in the warehouse rather than deployed on site,” commented Gary ODell, president of Information Display Company. “The DuraTrailer’s light tongue weight and simple setup design features makes deployment a no-brainer, encouraging day-to-day use, even for short-term projects.”
