Truck Safety

Takler USA Truck Safety Dur-A-Guard


What is a Truck Side Guard?


Side Guards are designed to prevent people from going underneath the rear wheels of large city vehicles. In the event of a side-collision accident between a pedestrian, cyclist, or motorcyclist and a large city vehicle, the impacted individual is not dragged underneath the vehicle, avoiding all contact with the wheel base and rear wheels of the affected truck or tractor-trailer.

TaklerUSA side guards are underride protection safety devices. Panels are installed on each side of a large city vehicle, such as a sanitation or delivery truck. Their application mitigates the impact of side underride collision related injuries and fatalities.

Side Guard under ride protection is proven to be an effective vehicle-based safety device.

Truck side guards make our city streets safer.

NYC LOCAL LAW 56 mandates the use of truck side guards on trucks operated in NYC by January 1 2024, a Civil Penalty for non-compliance with local law 56 is $10,000 per incident. An additional penalty may by imposed of up to $500 per day for each day after 30 days that the violation is not corrected.
