Buggy Whip History
Buggy Whip has been a family-owned company since its inception. Company president Russell Porter explains that his grandfather began working on the concept in 1967, with a focus on off-road and construction industries, to meet the need for enhanced visibility and safety.
More than five decades later, Buggy Whip safety antennas have become the most recognized and requested brand in the world.
Buggy Whip Product Range
The standard fiberglass Buggy Whip remains popular, although industrial applications increasingly require additional visibility, particularly when working in turbulent weather or at night. This has led to a growing trend towards LED safety whips.
Buggy Whip LED safety whips are available in a range of lengths and colors, as well as the option of an LED top light depending on customer requirements. Different colors can be used as markers or to distinguish between vehicles or machinery.
In the mining industry, the most popular option is the dual-colour LED safety whips with LED top light, which provides additional visibility and lights up the working area.

More about Buggy Whip
Buggy Whip safety antennas are suitable for a wide range of applications across a broad spectrum of industries. The standard use of the Buggy Whips is to easily identify vehicles and equipment in industrial environments.
The original whip has a high-visibility flag attached to a pole, which is clamped to the vehicle to make identification easier. Today, updated versions of this product are available with an optional top light, making the vehicles more visible. For maximised visibility, the whips can combine an LED lighted pole in addition to the top light, making them powerful enough to illuminate multiple working areas.
