Wheel detachment is an ongoing problem, despite the efforts of road safety agencies. According to the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL), each year up to 11,000 wheel fixing defects occur, causing up to 400 wheel detachments. A detached wheel can accelerate up to 93mph careering up to 50m high, with a collision force of 10 tonnes.
WheelSentry® makes wheel checks easy, assisting early identification of a problem and allowing the re-torquing of loose wheel nuts to restore the clamping force.
When you consider the inevitable damage to corporate image or brand resulting from a major incident, along with the financial implications, fitting WheelSentry® is a low-cost insurance policy against wheel detachment.
WheelSentry® provides the only combined wheel nut indicator and retainer system range in the marketplace and has been well received across a number of industry sectors, including the commercial vehicle industry. Unlike some other products in the market, the WheelSentry® system requires no special tools to apply and is quick and easy to fit, making checking and maintenance a simple hassle-free operation.
