AirBar Safe-turn, designed by NuVech Solutions, has a worldwide patent and is the first vehicle-mounted, retractable safety device to stop cyclists and bikers riding on the nearside of HGVs turning left at junctions. The flexible membrane, which inflates under pressure when the driver indicates, keeps riders out of the driver’s blind spot, helping to increase visibility and protect Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs) in these high-risk environments.

The left-hand signal application launches this month, at a time when people are being advised to cycle to work, and when more lorries are on the road due to the Government’s focus on construction. When an HGV driver indicates left, the soft membrane inflates at the nearside of the vehicle warning riders not to pass on the inside of the lorry and into the driver’s blind spot.
