handistep-logoFollowing BT Fleet’s recent contract award to Ford Motor Company for the supply of Ford Transits, Handistep is delighted to continue being part of the BT Fleet’s light commercial vehicle specification. Following extensive testing, the Handistep now features approved reverse sensors as part of the standard specification on the new Ford Transit.

The Handistep bespoke reverse sensor system has been specifically designed for the Handistep product and features patented DSM vibration proof sensors which are RoHS tested and EMC approved.

The same sensor kit can be ordered when you place your step order and installed during manufacture of the step thus saving valuable labour installation time when fitting the Handistep product to your vehicle.

Pre-wired and using dedicated IP68 rated connection plugs further ensure a quality product unlike any other sensors that are offered in the UK market place.

Additionally, should reverse sensors be required after installation of a normal Handistep, the same kit can also be offered. All step frames feature the necessary clearance holes and correct spacing in the metalwork needed to facilitate retrofitting the Handistep sensor kit to the Handistep rear step and does not impair the metal pre-treatment which makes Handistep so unique.

Further additions to the reverse sensor kit specification can also be provided with a park distance digital read out – dash mounted control making the system even more effective, being able to identify where the object / distance is in relation to the rear of the vehicle.

BT Fleet take their “Duty of Care” responsibilities very seriously and now specify Handistep with reverse sensors as standard to ensure their drivers are fully aware of unseen objects behind them whilst reversing. This is seen as a very positive approach to ensure that both drivers and members of the public are safer.
