Biker-Mate, the motorcyclist-friendly cushion crash developed by Euro Road Safety, is to be deployed internationally after an agreement was finalised for distribution in a number of countries.
The passive safety system, which attaches to objects such as lamp columns and road signposts to absorb energy and divert the force generated during collisions, is being distributed in a number of companies by a new partner company, Green Town SRL.
The Italian company, was awarded distribution rights for a 12 month period. Biker-Mate modules will now be made available within Russia, Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia, Romania, Ukraine, Belarus and Brazil. Green Town will also be distributing Biker-Mate within Italy over a two year period.
UK distribution of Biker-Mate will continue to be carried out in partnership with England-based firm Sign Post Solutions.
BSI have now finally completed their report and ERS is delighted to confirm that the results achieved were better than ever before, showing an absorption rate of 60-68% when Biker-Mate was utilised.
The auditors commented, “This verified that Biker-Mate can absorb a large amount of energy, thereby potentially reducing injuries to the motorcyclist on impact. Biker-Mate was also successful in the deflection of the dummy as witnessed during the test.”

Recently, ERS have designed an innovative new concept for a temporary safety barrier. We have patented some key aspects of the design which offers significant benefits over current available systems. These benefits include lower weight, speed of installation, flexibility, space saving, and efficient transportation. In addition our FE simulation suggests competitive containment levels and low class working widths for this product.
This product is now for sale, and is offered with a number of benefits, including a repair service, and discount for bulk orders.
We are seeking forward thinking, reputable and established partners to help develop and market our products. In doing so we believe we can obtain a quicker and more effective product launch, and reach a greater market. This would be mutually beneficial for many reasons, particularly the following:
