Big fleet success for Safetytrim

Published to the CV Show website on

Safetytrimworldwide says Lafarge, Sainsbury's, Balfour Beatty and Volvo Trucks have all bought its wheel nut management systems recently, fitting these to vans, trucks and trailers.  The firm says it is the only system on the market that shows when a nut is loose and then holds it in place until it can be re-tightened.  There is one, tough and heat-resistant plastic unit per wheel, fitting tightly over all the nuts at once.  "It looks like a wheel trim but with an indicator to show if a nut has begun to loosen," says the firm's Philip Aerts.  Each unit can be easily removed and refitted in a workshop. "The system is unique in that it not only flags up a problem but also stops it from getting worse," says Aerts.  It cuts wheel losses from vans, trucks, trailers and buses.
