Safety is an increasingly important factor in the road building industry and at Sakai we have made it our mission to address. Every year lives are tragically lost, personnel are severely injured, and equipment is damaged from backup accidents all with costly results to paving contractors. These losses could be prevented in many cases. Further, employees are increasingly hard to hire / retain and a worksite safety focus is an attractive employer attribute.
That’s where Sakai Guardman auto brake assist system technology comes in. A first for the asphalt paving roller industry, Guardman detects personnel, equipment, or objects behind the compactor and automatically brakes when a collision is imminent. The operator does not need to intervene.
