How Air Tube Systems enhance Health and Safety at Gatehouses

Updated: Sep 14, 2019

Heavy Goods Vehicle loading operations and deliveries to and from sites supplying raw materials represent significant "Health and Safety at Work" hazards and risks to both the HGV driver and gatehouse security personnel, especially when communicating and exchanging order documents or delivery notes.

Risks and issues may include...

  • The driver not stopping the engine when leaving the vehicle

  • The driver or security may have to walk across multiple busy access roads

  • The road surface may be muddy and slippery

  • There may be overhead loading activities

  • Traffic flow and delivery/pickup turnover may be slowed down

These hazards and associated risks can be eliminated by simply installing a dedicated Aerocom Pneumatic Air Tube System link and intercom from the driver’s window of the truck directly to the gatehouse security office.

With a basic intercom and weatherproof air tube station conveniently mounted at optimum access to the driver’s window, communications and document exchanges are made safely and in seconds using air tube carriers dramatically reducing the Health and Safety at Work risks and ensuring Health and Safety Executive (HSE) regulatory compliance.

Dependent on distance and local requirement or building arrangements you have a choice of:

  • Various tube diameters from Ø63mm, Ø90mm, Ø110mm, or Ø160mm

  • Tube can be routed internally, externally or even underground

  • A choice of stations, intercoms, carriers and accessories

  • Blowers can be single phase or 3-phase in various volume capacities

  • Control systems range from simple to sophisticated
