WHEN vehicles or trailers are used to carry containers, engineering equipment or skip loaders, the height of the vehicle and its load must be marked in the vehicle's cab.

A measuring device to help drivers to comply with this regulation is now being marketed by Zucor Bieffe UK Ltd, Unit 2, Tannery Road Industrial Estate, Gomm Road, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.

The Telescolorry is a telescopic measuring rod comprising six sections, each 0.914m (1 yd) long, with imperial calibrations on the second section which is at about eye-level when the base is on the floor.

Telescoped down, the rod measures 1m 12cm (44in), short enough to be carried in a cab.

The Telescolorry retails at £58 plus vat.
