INSTABOOM Go Wins LCRIG Innovation Award in Traffic Signs and Lines Category

August 2023

Solar Gates' INSTABOOM Go clinched the prestigious LCRIG Innovation Award in the Traffic Signs and Lines category. This recognition from LCRIG underscores the potential of the INSTABOOM Go, which boasts cutting-edge features designed to enhance traffic control and road safety whilst being simple and effortless to control and set-up. 

One of the standout features of INSTABOOM Go is its innovative solar hybrid power system. Dedicated to helping the environment and sustainability Solar Gates are consciously innovating products where every milliamp of power and each construction material is considered to make them as ‘green’ as we possibly can. 

Designed for efficiency and ease of use, INSTABOOM Go can be deployed in under a minute by one person, making it a game-changer for traffic management during roadworks and street maintenance. This remarkable device is ready for action right out of its compact flight case, enabling swift setup and operation. 

What sets INSTABOOM Go apart is its ability to be managed by a single operator through remote control, allowing them to oversee traffic control while ensconced safely within their vehicle. Safe from oncoming traffic and out of the way of potential abuse too. 

Solar Gates emphasizes that the 'Safety at Street Works and Road Works' code of practice strongly recommends the use of remotely controlled Stop/Go boards wherever possible. INSTABOOM Go not only meets this requirement but exceeds it by providing a convenient and efficient solution that enhances safety for both road workers and motorists. 

One of the standout features of INSTABOOM Go is its hybrid design, ensuring uninterrupted operation even when the sun isn't shining. The INSTABOOM Go can run for an impressive two weeks of 10-hour shifts, with a signal change every 30 seconds. This longevity ensures that traffic control remains reliable and consistent throughout extended roadwork projects, regardless of weather conditions. 

Safety is paramount when it comes to traffic control, and INSTABOOM Go boasts a safety control software that is TOPAS aligned and it is designed to prevent any mishaps, such as a double Go/Go signal, and only allows safe operations. This commitment to safety ensures that roadwork sites are secure for both workers and road users. 

The LCRIG Innovation Award in the Traffic Signs and Lines category acknowledges the significant contribution of INSTABOOM Go to the field of traffic management and roadwork safety. This award not only recognizes the innovative technology behind INSTABOOM Go but also highlights its potential to transform the way we approach traffic control and roadworks in the future.

Neil Sampson, Managing Director says "Our team is thrilled to receive the LCRIG Innovation Award in the Traffic Signs and Lines category for INSTABOOM Go. This recognition validates our commitment to creating cutting-edge solutions that empower traffic management operatives that prioritise safety. The solar hybrid power system integrated into INSTABOOM Go reflects our dedication to sustainability and reducing the environmental impact of traffic control. We are excited to continue pushing the boundaries of innovation to make our roads safer, more efficient, and eco-friendly."
