ND Brown Fleet Upgraded With Sentinel System


ND Brown are proud to announce an ongoing upgrade to our complete HGV Hire and Tipper Hire Fleet. This upgrade takes the form of upgraded cameras from Sentinel Systems – specialists in vehicle safety. 

Sentinel Systems

Being a Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) associate, Sentinel Systems has provided ND Brown with a unique system, designed specifically to accomplish our goal of making our clients and the public as safe as humanly possible. 

In order to help us achieve this, they have been working closely with our bodybuilders and mechanics. The heart of this system is Sentinel’s side vision cameras. These cameras feature cycle hotspot systems and side protection solutions.

This upgrade is part of our overall efforts to raise industry standards and improve the safety for our drivers and other road users. As such, this system has been designed to increase our drivers’ overall level of visibility – thus  ensuring an increased level of  safety for everyone on the road. 

A Long Term Project

This collaboration has been a long-term project, taking place over the past six years and continuing to this day. As of writing, 150 of our vehicles each year are being upgraded with Sentinel System’s vehicle safety and bicyclist safety equipment. As part of Sentinel System’s excellent service, they also maintain the installed system. This high level of service ensures that this upgrade will never degrade or become unusable over time. 

As a result of Sentinel System’s accreditation in the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme, ND Brown has become the first commercial vehicle hire company in the United Kingdom to be given the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme’s (FORS) Silver Standard accreditation.  

In the time since our first accreditation, this silver award has quickly become the standard and often requested by our customers. As such, achieving this accreditation so early has helped to put us ahead of our competitors. 

A Modern Fleet

All of our new vehicles have Sentinel Systems installed on them from the start. This means that our drivers experience this high level of awareness from the start; our vehicles don’t require any additional retrofitting or time off the road. This ensures that more of our vehicles are on the road at any given time, thus ensuring that our customers are able to rent the vehicles that they need now, and don’t have to wait.
