Name of action 

The Foam Cones.
There is a problem today in Svevia with collision of trucks and TMA.( Truck Mounted Attenuator)
We plan to solve this by placing Foam Cones as protection before starting a job so you don’t have to take the risk to stop and get out of your vehicle.
These small piles will be bigger than those you can see in the images.
These vehicles perform work in motion sometimes and then you can use this method as a warning.
It is our view that a motorist watch out for anything you do not know what it is.
The foam cone dispenser consists of a maneuver box aside the panel, foam with valves, and an ejector box. There are two swithchers at the manouver box, one for off/on, and the other is a time switcher adjusting the distance between the foam cones.
Inside the box there is a time-delay relay which regulates the quantity of foam for each cone. Capasity: 6 cones /min. each approx. 5 liters foam cones.
