Retrolex Forklift Tyres – Adding Value to Businesses
In today’s ever changing and competitive world of construction, distribution, manufacturing, processing and retail, there are a vast number of goods and materials that need to be moved from one place to another and that is where forklifts come to the rescue. While forklifts undertake extremely strenuous and enduring work, it is expected that some parts will deteriorate over time, especially the tyres.
Whether it is through bursts or punctures, it is imperative that the tyres are changed on a regular basis. Considered as one of the most important parts of a forklift, when choosing the right tyres for your lifting and moving machine, you are guaranteed an efficient and productive work environment, which not only amounts to safe and successful operations, but it will also reduce operating costs and downtime.
The Different Forklift Tyre Types
While all tyre types are a give and take between strength, traction and wearing ability, the most popular forklift tyres are pneumatic, solid, and polyurethane. Pneumatic forklift tyres are tough heavy duty tyres that are ideal for environments with rough terrain. An extremely popular option for industries that rely on tyres that won’t wear down easily, not only are these forklift tyres broad and wide, but they also have excellent tread on them.
Similar to pneumatic tyres, solid rubber forklift tyres are not filled with air. While these tyres are ideal for indoor and outdoor use with a less challenging terrain, these tyres are tough and long-lasting and will never burst like pneumatic tyres. Used only indoors, polyurethane tyres are pressed on, which make them quite straightforward and trouble-free to attach. Long lasting with good traction, polyurethane tyres are extremely popular for use in warehouses and factories.
