Thanksgiving isn’t all about the homemade mashed potatoes, gravy, and stuffed turkeys. It’s a time to surround ourselves with family, friends, and loved ones and reflect on the many things we are thankful for. It’s also a chance to give thanks to the Truck Mounted Attenuator (TMA) Trucks that we call hero trucks, for getting workers home safe to their families. Here are three reasons to be thankful for having a TMA Truck in your work zone.watch
- Built to Protect
Over the years, the wrong type of truck has been placed before the work zone to protect highway workers but nothing protects better than one equipped with a TMA. Attenuator trucks act as positive protection barrier and in the event of an impact, giving the workers and the motorist the greatest chance of survival. Like all technology, the TMA is constantly innovating to better shield our workers from danger. There are several key components that will allow your crash truck to excel at its job; having the correct weight to reduce forward roll upon impact, having the right breaks, and lastly, ensuring you’ve got the right attenuator.. All aspects to be thankful for!
With 2017 right around the corner, and planned construction work all over the nation, the use of TMA trucks will be required by many states. Even if your state only recommends the use of crash trucks, choosing to require one for your projects lets your employees know they can depend on you. And you can depend on a TMA to protect your team. If your job is short-term and the idea of purchasing a TMA truck is just not feasible, TMA trucks can be rented from various rental providers all over the country at daily, weekly, and monthly rates. A crash truck is the one friend you can depend on to be there and keep you safe, you’ve got nothing to lose!
- Sense of Security
With millions of motorists traveling on highways daily, there’re just as many distractions on the road. Construction zones need protection now more than ever! Crash trucks bring a sense of security to workers along dangerous highways. They are out there for us after all. They should work at ease knowing they’ve got a hero truck that serves to protect them at all cost. You can bet the men and woman who do have the protection of a TMA truck are thankful that it is there. Royal’s Director of Business Development, Andrew Roberts always says, “Safety has a cost, but is not an option. A workers life is not expensive, it is priceless.”
