Tyron’s reports that its Runflat MultiBands have been selected to keep the fast pursuit vehicles of the Cumbria Constabulary and Cheshire Constabulary police safe in the event of a tyre blow-out at speed. The selection will see Tyron MultiBands rolled out to in-service pursuit vehicles that previously had run-flat tyres fitted.
Leicestershire-based Tyron Runflat Limited has presented its latest run-flat system at the IDEX 2015 defence exhibition and conference in Abu Dhabi. Known as Friction Shield, the system is intended for use on armoured vehicles and consists of sealed, multi-piece run-flat inserts that contain a self-sealing lubricant. The inserts burst when a tyre deflates; Tyron Runflat says the use of separate sachets that burst upon tyre deflation ensures the right amount of lubricant is delivered and enables the vehicle to continue travelling for extended periods.
