Westcotec Vehicle Activated Signs and Interactive Road Signs

Westcotec 2016

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.

We design, manufacture and supply a comprehensive and complete range of vehicle-activated road signs and numerous systems that are triggered from a wide range of sensors.

In addition to conventional signs, we can create bespoke solutions to your individual traffic safety requirements.

CE marking

After vigorous testing to European Standards, all of Westcotec products are now CE certified. This certification is required for all fixed signs that are now installed on the highway, including private sites.

Portable signs are required to bear the CE mark from September 2016.

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.

Speed indicator devices

Speed indicator devices (SIDs) accurately measure the oncoming vehicles speed and displays this value to the driver. A number of variations are available. The sign face itself can also display a number of different messages along with the speed such as SLOW DOWN.

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.

School safety zone signs

Our school safety zone signs can be full or part-LED, along with being combined with a reflective backing. They have a fully programmable timer and a remote switching option. The times are able to be changed via Bluetooth.

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.

Data collection

Data collection can be enabled for all signs. This gives the user information on the speed of vehicles that travel past the sign, along with date and time. The data can be plotted into graphs to show averages and can be exported to excel.

Specialist signs and systems

We can design bespoke signs to meet specific traffic control needs. We have a proven track record producing innovative designs and state of the art systems, keeping ourselves one step ahead of the competition.

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.

At the heart of our growth, is a commitment to customer service. Westcotec’s aim is to make the whole process of buying a VAS system as smooth as possible. Free advice is always available from our experienced staff.
