Timespace Technology has received approval for its vehicle CCTV recorders under the R118 (burning behaviour of materials) regulations.
Timespace’s market-leading digital video recorders (DVRs) are installed in thousands of buses and coaches worldwide. The E-marks for Timespace’s vehicle products have been upgraded by the UK VCA to include UN ECE R118 Fire Safety Regulations. This currently applies to Timespace’s V400, V500, X300 and R500 DVRs.
Timespace also produces the CANLink engineering data recorder, and the Bridge Alert low bridge early-warning system. Both of these vehicle accessories are now also available with R118 E-Mark approval. UN ECE R118 approval is required on applicable new passenger vehicle first registrations from July 2020.
Henry Heylen, Timespace’s Commercial Director, says, “Timespace has a reputation for high-quality and reliable products. We are delighted to be able to offer our bus and coach products with UK VCA R118 approval, giving manufacturers and operators yet another reason to choose Timespace vehicle CCTV equipment with confidence”.
