Tyron Runflat introduces Custom ATR runflat system
- Date: 18th November 2019
- Company: Tyron Runflat Limited
Tyron Runflat Ltd has introduced a new All Terrain Runflat (ATR) multi-piece solution to its ATR runflat product portfolio.
Called the ATR-Custom, the new system is designed for vehicles fitted with standard single-piece wheels as an alternative to Tyron Multibands or third-party plastic-type runflats.
The two-piece runflat solution does not require a hydraulic press to squeeze the runflat in and out of the tyre, making it field-mountable and demountable and minimising the logistics footprint of armoured vehicles.
The ATR-Custom is made of rubber which gives extra protection to off-road 4x4 and military vehicles. Unlike plastic or composite materials, rubber absorbs the shocks encountered with kerb strikes and pot-holes and in the off-road environment, drastically reducing vibration and stresses that can transmit through the runflat to the wheels, suspension, axels and drive shafts. Rubber is far superior, offering a much smoother ride for the vehicle driver and occupants, and a lesser degree of wear and tear on the vehicle. Additionally, as rubber is a compliant material, it prevents damage to the tyre itself caused by impingement between the runflat and the inside of the tyre.
“The ATR-Custom is a new alternative for users seeking a multi-part runflat for military vehicles that do not have multi-piece wheels,” said Richard Glazebrook, Chief Executive of Tyron Runflat Ltd. “We are pleased to introduce this new solution at DSEI Japan, which is a market in which we see great opportunities for growth for our company.”
