Safety Systems

In support of the Government’s drive to reduce the human and financial cost of Road Traffic Accidents, CEL has developed CELsafe™ Electrical Disconnection Systems which meet the latest requirements of BSEN12767. A number of Customers have had instances during actual RTA’s, where potentially life-saving successful disconnections have taken place.

Within the CELsafe™ range two systems are available to meet specific project requirements. They both provide safe and automatic disconnection of the electrical supply following vehicle impact to a lighting column or other similar structure.

  • CEP3 - A tilt switch solution with electronic trip.                          
  • CEP4 - As CEP3 but an above ground solution with electrical equipment contained in a feeder pillar.
  • CELcomTM device can be installed in the pillar and using SMS technology sends notification of a knock-down to a mobile telephone.
  • Three ground chamber size options c/w IP67 termination box and 12.5t or 40t covers
  • All options designed for low maintenance
