Design Column


The outer housing with a new design, which is part of our company's range, is designed to accommodate the tried and tested M5 traffic monitoring device and is preferred for use in urban and other residential areas. The height of the housing above ground is about 2.95 m and is made of extremely vandalism-resistant material.

Fiber-optic road surface sensors are used as detectors. This housing shape rounds off the range of our reliable products and, with its attractive design and functional diversity, is another means of educating people on the road.
