Automated Flagger Assistance Device
The Sentinel Automated Flagger Assistance Device (AFAD) removes flaggers from dangerous traffic in work zones and saves money by increasing worker efficiency. The Sentinel AFAD is available as a towable Type 4 trailer or on a compact wheeled base. The system is designed for superior mobility and is the easiest to load, unload and deploy AFAD available.
Improves Work Zone Safety
Work zones are hazardous for both workers and the motorists who must drive through the complex maze of signs, barrels, equipment and lane changes. Flaggers are on the front lines of the work zone and face errant and distracted motorists every day, putting them in real danger. Automated flagger assistance devices take flaggers out of harm’s way!
The Sentinel AFAD is part of the Sentinel family, which includes a range of interchangeable components that can be mixed and matched to expand your fleet. The Sentinel can be configured in a variety of ways, including portable traffic signals, automated flagger assistance devices (AFAD), driveway assistance devices (DAD), pedestrian signals and more.
SENTINEL AFAD FEATURES
The Sentinel AFAD includes the Galaxy® AFAD Controller, which provides the full range of flagger functionality and can be operated via wireless remote control by a certified flagger. It has a self-contained battery power supply with optional solar recharging. The Sentinel AFAD includes a gate arm with red/white reflective sheeting.
