Indonesia opened its first toll road in 1978. Today, vehicles stop at various locations on the major highways to pay tolls. Dealing with traffic congestion and frustrated drivers can make working in the toll booth a dangerous job. There is always the possibility of an accident or a robbery. To create a safer work environment, the mass transit authority sought a cost effective, retrofit solution to upgrade the glazing without replacing the glass.
Our LLumar® distributor specified LLumar SCL SR PS 4 clear safety/security film for the highway toll booths. The film not only holds glass shards together in the event of breakage, it also shields employees from harmful ultraviolet rays. The film’s scratch resistant coating will keep it looking new for years to come. Phase I of the project stretches from Jakarta’s International Airport to the suburbs. It includes 14 gates (8 toll booths per gate). According to the distributor this is only the beginning. They plan to install the film on every toll gate in Indonesia.
“The film is an invisible barrier that does not obstruct our view. Our employees can see each driver’s face from inside the booth and feel secure,” said Mr. Saud, Supervisor, Gerbang Tol CTC.
