Ralph’s Radio in Vancouver and Victoria has been offering backup sensor systems as long as the technology has existed. One of the hallmarks of our company is offering products that improve the lives of our clients, so the driver safety category is near and dear to our hearts. When you are in your vehicle backing up, being off by as little as a few inches can result in thousands of dollars in damages, not to mention the inconvenience involved in the repairs.
How Backup Sensor Systems Work
The technology behind backup sensor systems is pretty advanced, but fortunately the operation is very simple. Our team of expertly trained installers will flush small sensors in your rear bumper that send out ultrasonic signals to “detect” an object behind the vehicle. Inside, we hide an audible alert that lets you know how close you are to that object.
When you first place the car, truck or SUV in reverse, you hear a single beep to announce the system is active. As you get closer to something in your path, the alerts go from a low beep to a fast beep, and finally a constant tone at approximately a foot away. The driver now has an effective way of measuring depth perception while backing up.
High-quality OEM Match Paint Option
For a true factory look, Ralph’s Radio offers an OEM paint option where the sensors will be colour-matched to the vehicle. If they are not painted, the sensors have a black finish.
Superior Product Quality
Before Ralph’s will offer a product to our clients, it has to undergo an approval process by our management team. Since we have been in business since 1949, pretty much every brand comes to us to sell their products. Most products don’t make the cut. Rest assured: If we offer it, you can know it will perform as advertised and give you years of reliable service.
Highly Trained Installers
Every installer at Ralph’s has done hundreds of our backup sensor systems using our reference-standard methods. When you choose us for an installation, it gets done right the first time. We never cut corners because we hate comebacks.
Do you own a commercial vehicle? Or perhaps a fleet? Our team has systems specifically designed to handle the abuse given to these vehicles while making it easy for the driver to avoid an accident.
