Wheel security system provider Wheely-Safe has extended its range to fit almost all 17.5in, 19.5in and 22.5in wheels, including those with six, eight and 10-stud fixings.
The firm said its wheel security system would now fit more than 95% of all medium and heavy commercial vehicles in the UK and Ireland – up from around 65% previously, according to a spokesperson.
The range expansion follows an intensive six-month product development phase in which eight additional brackets were created.
The mild steel, zinc nickel-coated Wheely Safe brackets are used to straddle pairs of wheel nuts. Should a nut start to loosen, a signal is immediately transmitted to a display unit in the truck cab to alert the driver.
“This is the only system in the world which can detect the onset of wheel loss on a moving commercial vehicle before detachment – and now we’ve got a solution which fits pretty much any medium or heavy commercial fleet,” commented Wheely-Safe MD, Steve Jackson.
The Wheely-Safe sensors can also detect brake or hub issues involving low or high temperatures, and a tyre pressure management system (TPMS) is also provided via a set of robust sensors which replace the traditional valve cap.
