With a large private fleet of equipment at their disposal, Lafrentz designs and installs industrial and enhanced safety markings, as well as special skid-resistant surfaces across Western Canada roadways.

Work crews exposed to work environments where employees are out of sight or sound from each can rest assured that they have the highest quality instrumentation for their safety,” said Tim Zapf at Lafrentz. “The company has a proven safety record and we intend on maintaining it. The Loner product provides an incredible tool to advance our safety mission”.
