Wheely-Safe has launched a new generation of open platform systems, making its intelligent tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), wheel loss and brake temperature sensing technologies available for sale by tyre distributors and dealers for the first time. The new systems can connect to vehicle telematics and CAN bus directly and are offered alongside the brand’s standalone products. Wheely-Safe says the launch is part of its biggest series of upgrades to date. The new technologies include an auto-calibrating internal TPMS sensor – which it claims is a world first – that eliminates the need for external valve sensors. The sensor is suitable for “all vehicle types” Wheely-Safe says, including cars, commercial vehicles, and plant machinery.
Wheely-Safe has announced a new initiative with industry charity, Brake. It pledges to make a cash donation for every van, bus, coach or truck displaying a ‘Wheely-Safe fitted’ vinyl graphic, highlighting its protection using the firm’s latest generation tyre and wheel safety technology. Wheely-Safe will gift £5 for every light commercial vehicle (LCV) and £10 for every heavy goods vehicle (HGV) or public service vehicle (PSV) carrying the sticker, which it will supply with all new systems.
Wheely-Safe will be showcasing its award-winning wheel security and tyre pressure monitoring system at the Commercial Vehicle Show (28 April – 30 April 2020), on the back of winning four major industry titles in 2019, including the Transport Technology of the Year at the National Technology Awards.
Wheely-Safe can now supply its patented wheel security system to fit more than 95 per cent of all medium and heavy commercial vehicles operating in the UK and Irish markets, including buses, coaches, trucks and trailers.
UK technology company Wheely-Safe has launched ‘Michelin Wheel Security and Tyre Pressure Management System Heavy Fleet’, a solution aimed at truck, bus, coach, trailer and heavy plant operators and designed to tackle the issues of wheel loss and brake and hub overheating. Wheely-Safe says this patented solution is the world’s first in-motion driver alert system that detects the onset of wheel loss before detachment; it also warns the driver of potential brake or hub issues that could lead to a fire if unchecked, as well as tyre over- or under-inflation.
UK technology company Wheely-Safe has released a new easy-to-fit tyre pressure management system (TPMS) for car, van, minibus, plant and trailer operators. This new product, it says, is designed to make it simple for both drivers and fleet managers to keep on top of tyre pressures.
West Midlands-based Wheely Safe, the first in-motion driver alert system for wheel loss, tyre pressure and brake overheating, has announced two senior appointments to drive its growth across the fleet market for cars, vans, buses, coaches, trucks, trailers and plant equipment.
