Martins Industries, a tire equipment manufacturer, is introducing a series of heavy-duty Tire Inflation Cages (MIC-6HD) that will virtually eliminate the possibility of injury during the tire inflation process, the company says.
The new inflation cages offer several safety features including six heavy-duty reinforcement bars, a pneumatic safety valve on the cage door, an air hose with lock-on chuck and an air deflection system for maximum containment. They ensure all compliance with local safety regulations in North America and Europe, Martins Industries says.
MIC-6HD tire inflation cages offer workers a one-stop station for safely seating and inflating truck and bus tires. With three models in the MIC-6HD series, users can choose from the inflation cage 6 bars HD, the inflation cage kit which includes an automatic inflator kit, or the Inflation Pit Stop 6 Bars HD.
The company developed the MIC-6HD series to respond to the specific needs of the Netherlands market, but quickly realized that the safety features of this particular series would be beneficial to companies around the world, a company press release said.
“We’ve been sharing ideas with tire professionals from all over the world in our different locations, and then creating efficient and safe products that respond directly to those needs. This new safety inflation cage MIC-6HD is the result of that collaboration. Sharing ideas brings exceptional results,” says Martins Industries founder and president, Martin Depelteau.
