Descripton

Overheight Vehicle Detectors detect overheight vehicles moving toward obstacles such as bridges, tunnels and other overhead structures and individually warns drivers. An audible alarm and/or sign is activated when an overheight vehicle is detected by the system.  
The infra-red based system, coupled with high intensity signing, offers great reliability in detecting and warning drivers of high vehicles to "DIVERT or TURN BACK."
