Neil Sampson, MD at Solar Gates UK said, “The amalgamation of forces between Solar Gates UK and SRL is an extremely exciting juncture for us. The award winning Instaboom and GS6 Boom were developed to help highway contractors to reduce incursions, eliminate over height strikes and improve the safety of workers on the network. They have quickly been adopted on most SMART motorway and HS2 projects across the country, helping clients save carbon, guarding costs and lives.

“Working with SRL allows us to offer our clients a more rapid managed service, across the UK, as well as utilising their extensive depot network, enabling same day delivery of hire units. With new products on the horizon, aimed at short term and overnight projects, SRL will be able to promote the budget, safety and carbon benefits that Instaboom brings into new markets with us.”
