MONTREAL — Tire equipment manufacturer Martins Industries Inc. has introduced a series of heavy-duty tire inflation cages (MIC-6HD) that the company said nearly will eliminate the possibility of injury during the tire inflation process.
The inflation cages offer several safety features, Martins said, 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.
The inflation cages comply with local safety regulations in North America and Europe, according to the company.
MIC-6HD tire inflation cages provide a one-stop station for seating and inflating truck and bus tires safely and efficiently. The cage is one of more than 20 different models available, with three in the MIC-6HD series.
MIC-6HD users can choose from the Inflation Cage 6 Bars HD, the inflation cage kit that includes an automatic inflator kit, or the Inflation Pit Stop 6 Bars HD.
Martins said it developed the MIC-6HD series to respond to the specific needs of the Netherlands market but realized that the safety features of this particular series would benefit companies globally.
"This new safety inflation cage MIC-6HD is the result of that collaboration. Sharing ideas brings exceptional results," Martins Industries President Martin Depelteau said.
