Construction jobsites not only demand a tire flatproofing solution, but also one that improves safety and traction. When riding on uneven terrain and slopes, construction foremen trust TyrFil to keep their equipment operators safe. Tire-filled pneumatics, commonly known in the industry as foam-fill, have better traction and increased deflection compared to solid aperture tires. “I rent quite a few man-lifts for all of my projects, and I always request “foam-filled” tires”, said a construction foreman currently working on a football stadium expansion in Iowa. He went on to state “pneumatics with foam-fill are a better safety option on the jobsite.” Tire-filled pneumatics allow 30-46% more deflection compared to solid aperture tires increasing traction and improving stability.
At another construction jobsite in Utah, the foreman rents telehandlers only with tire-filled pneumatics. The foreman knows he can count on TyrFil to provide the traction and stability necessary for the telehandlers to safely climb over boards to lift the load to the next level. “Solid tires do not have the “give” that these filled-tires have”, said the equipment operator. He has experienced both tire-filled pneumatics and solid aperture tires on a telehandler. He states “in addition to more traction and stability, I like the ride much better than solid tires; it is a lot easier on my lower back”. This smoother ride is a result of the increased deflection that tire-filled pneumatics provide because it decreases G-force impact. Lower back pain and whole body vibration are often a result of excessive G-force transmissions from solid aperture tires. This is what is known in the industry as – Solid Shock!
Contractors working on construction jobsites understand that safety is a top priority, and this is why they request the only tire flatproofing solution that was specifically formulated with safety in mind: TyrFil. It’s What’s Inside that Counts!
