Industrial tyre choice
Tyres can become a significant expense across a business with a large, heavily used fleet and so you need a way to avoid tyres becoming unsafe through excessive wear and also wasting money by inadvertently changing tyres too early.
The Pit Stop Line tyre from Trelleborg is a revelation in truck tyre design. Identifiable by the orange dot on the tyre wall, these innovative tyres have an orange band embedded into the rubber which becomes visible once your tyres have approximately 100 hours of life left.
This allows you to plan ahead, order tyres in time and to change them only when they are ready for change.
Forklift tyre options
Solid tyres are better suited to indoor applications or where there is a high risk of tyre damage and puncture. Their construction offers reduced maintenance and low rolling resistance on smooth surfaces. Application specific tread compounds can maximise traction in cold store environments or be non-marking for use in operations that require extremely high levels of hygiene, such as food or chemical manufacturing operations. Anti-static tyre compounds are specified for use in potentially explosive atmospheres to prevent static ignition and other compounds are specified to reduce excessive heat build-up which can make tyres slippery. Briggs can give you all the advice you need.
