Cyclist safety

Dawes guard

Safety devices from Dawes Highway Safety include the Dawes­ Guard, a pneumatically operated system designed to pre­vent accidents where a cyclist falls and is dragged under the wheels of an HGV.

It creates a protective barrier between the road surface, vehicle underside and wheels.

Fitted to existing under-run bars, the air-filled barrier is made from Hypalon, a tough synthetic rubber material. Compressed air from a vehicle’s standard reser­voirs is used to inflate the Dawes­Guard to a working pressure of 12psi (0.8bar).

Below the inflatable section, a row of tough bristles make contact with the road surface to help pre­vent hands and feet becoming entangled by the wheels.
