BrakeSafe becomes an Award Winning System after Tipex 2016

Posted on 13th Jun, 2016 by Dominic Benabda

Vision Techniques winner of the Innovation Award 2016 after a successful few days at the Tipex show this year.

This year’s Tipex show was successful in more ways than usual as not only did Vision Techniques see many friendly faces as well as new faces but they also walked away with an award. The BrakeSafe system was put forward for the Innovation Award 2016 and the unique system truly blew the judges away with its impressive capabilities.

The rollaway preventing VT BrakeSafe is a handbrake failsafe system that is compatible with every HGV on our roads, as it automatically applies the handbrake if the driver gets out of the vehicle without applying it. BrakeSafe is the only safety system in the marketplace that stops the vehicle moving if the driver forgets, even if the ignition is off. The system will prevent countless numbers of rollaway and runaway incidents that could occur every year.


The system has also been demonstrated at the VT Safety Days which have been held in Skipton and Sunderland, and next week another will be held in West Dunbarton, Scotland. The feedback from the attendees of these events was very positive for the BrakeSafe system with many people saying that it was “revolutionary” and “excellent”.

John Derbyshire, Hyndburn Council, attended the Skipton event and said, “Simple straightforward system, puts up valid vehicle indications, can be recorded and fed back live or historic.”
