Remote security systems for plant machinery

At Selwood, we offer unmatched technical knowledge and industry-leading equipment from a dedicated team of experts. This has enabled us to develop quality plant machinery security and safety systems to ensure the safety and security of our customers when hiring plant from us.


Trackunit and Sure-Track security management systems

The problem of plant theft is affecting an increasing number of businesses. We offer Sure-Track and Trackunit remote security management systems for your peace of mind.

The Sure-Track Secure Recover System has been designed to enable stolen assets, such as hired plant, to be returned with minimum disruption and delay.

This system allows our customers to view the status of all their machines on hire, whether they are being used, off or idling. This gives more control of the vehicle to the customer, allowing for immobilisation remotely and the creation of a safe zone which will notify both us and the customer when the machine leaves that area.

Trackunit is a keypad immobiliser fleet-management tool which creates a new 4-digit code each time a machine is hired out to help increase security. From 2016, this device has been fitted to all new Selwood plant items as an added security feature.

SureTrack and Trackunit systems are available for all plant items on request, at a small additional charge. Please contact your local branch for details.


Plant machinery security and safety systems

We are committed to supplying equipment above and beyond the latest health and safety standards.

New excavators into the fleet are supplied with travel alarms fitted as a standard. This alarm gives an audible warning that the operator in the machine is tracking backwards or forwards so that anyone in the vicinity of the machine is aware of that movement and can take appropriate action to maintain their safety.

We also offer the Vehicle Collision Avoidance System (VCAS) - a portable device developed as an aid in safety for detecting objects within a predetermined field. This item can be hired and fitted to 3-tonne dumpers and above.

All wheeled equipment that we supply will be service brake and handbrake tested with a DVSA approved tester.

Our machines are also fitted with SureTrack seat belt warning system, that registers a green light on the web browser when the seat belt is connected, and a red light for when it isn’t, this gives those on-site more transparency if there is a re-occurrence of an operator not using their seat belt.

We are proud to be one of the few companies in the UK that holds all three recognised ISO standards. We also hold extensive safety accreditations and memberships, including CEA, CPA, CHAS and Safecontractor.
