Traffic Tech is a global leader in traffic technology providing solutions for the management of vehicles and pedestrians traffic flow. Traffic Tech originated from the development of the EzyLoops system, a preformed inductive vehicle detection system renowned for its high performance as both a sub-surface and surface-mounted vehicle-detection system. Over the years the company has grown to include the distribution of unique high-quality traffic safety products supplied to the civil and road traffic technology industry.
With its head office in Sydney, Australia Traffic Tech was incorporated in 2000 with the development of the EzyLoops system. The continued growth of the EzyLoops systems facilitated the opening of an office in Nevada, USA, in 2005 and in Saskatchewan, Canada in 2008.
In 2007 Traffic Tech, in partnership with MtM International, developed the pedestrian and bicycle switch pad that is sure to further enhance its reputation as an innovator in the Australian traffic technology sector.
EzyLoops sub-surface loops are electromagnetic traffic-detection loops that are pre-formed and encapsulated in a protective, adhesive membrane so that they may be laid within a road pavement as a single unit. The sub-surface loops can be laid at a depth of between 50mm (2in) and 150mm (6in) during the construction or maintenance of the road surface.
The benefits of EzyLoops to be considered when detection loops need to be installed or replaced are:
EzyLoops surface mounted loops are electromagnetic vehicle-detection loops that are pre-formed and encapsulated in a protective mat, so that they may be laid onto a pavement surface as a single unit. The loops are specifically designed to withstand the rigors of direct vehicle loading in access-control situations.
EzyLoops surface mounted loops are not cut into the road after the pavement has been constructed, but simply fixed to the surface of the pavement using lock-down bolts. No saw-cutting means no polluted water in the storm water system. There is also no need to sand bag, and most importantly, because the pavement is not cut to install the loops, the structural integrity of the pavement is maintained and its life is extended.
The Pedestrian Switch Pad (PSP) is the newest development and offers a low profile, pressure activated, detection pad to be installed at pedestrian ramps and crossings.
It is comprised of a non-slip robust synthetic rubber surface, an intermediate layer in which the switches are located and a protective base layer. This invention detects the presence of a person or other object weighing over 10kg and is also able to take the weight of a large truck (10t per wheel) without being damaged. As the entire surface pad can be as thin as 4mm thick it has the potential to be laid onto the surface of a footpath or pedestrian ramp without the need to excavate.
The Bicycle Switch Pad (BSP) is only 5mm thick and is constructed of heavy duty non-corrosive materials with a non-slip surface. The switch pad is simply adhered to the surface of an existing bike lane or path approaching a road crossing on intersection.
This patented Bicycle Switch Pad (BSP-1200) has been designed to be an alternative to a call button as well as being able to cancel a call if vacated. Each button or row of buttons on the switch pad can be individually activated so that both presence and direction can be determined.
