Wanco Automated Flagger


The Wanco Automated Flagger Assistance Device (AFAD) is a portable flagging station that removes the traditional human flagger from the road while providing motorists with clear guidance through a temporary traffic control (TTC) zone. As a result, the Wanco AFAD not only improves worker safety but also lowers costs by limiting liability and exposure for personnel.
