PSS has launched the RoadQuake Raptor to transport, deploy, realign and retrieve RoadQuake 2F temporary portable rumble strips in work zones.
The machine mounts to the front of a vehicle and has a capacity of 12 RoadQuake strips. The product provides “portable positive protection” when deploying and retrieving RoadQuake strips and is ideal for short duration, short-term and mobile operations, says the company.
It’s all about safety, explained David Cowan, chief executive of PSS, located in Cleveland, in the US state of Ohio. PSS designs, manufactures and markets safety devices for roadway and pedestrian applications. "The Raptor was designed to keep workers off of the road and eliminate manual stress injuries due to lifting and carrying.”
Cowan said that in January this year, PSS kicked off a cross-country demonstration tour of the Raptor's ability to improve work zone safety.
