These vehicles need to keep moving in the event of a puncture either from a safety perspective or a security one, whatever the reason they need to be safely driven out of danger to a place where the tyre can be repaired.
They need to have the tyre, even deflated in contact with the ground. To achieve this the tyre needs to be locked into position, not move and achieve good beadlock. Tyron’s MultiBands and runflats are designed to do this.
In the event of a puncture or blow-out the Tyron MultiBand is guaranteed to “lock” the tyre on the wheel rim allowing the driver to retain control of the vehicle reducing the risk of an accident and to continue to a safe place to change the wheel or seek assistance, reducing the risk of personal injury.
Lightweight, so as not to affect fuel consumption, acceleration and braking and with no moving parts it does not affect the balancing of the wheels, maintenance free and fitted once for the life of the vehicle and its occupants.
The Multipart All Terrain Rubber Runflat (ATR)
Tyron has developed and patented a multi part rubber runflat suitable for fitting to a wide range of military, security and VIP off road vehicles. Made out of rubber the Tyron ATR absorbs the shocks from bumps and kerb strikes much better than a hard composite solution and reduces the damage to both the wheel and the tyre, so that both have the potential of being re-used when repairs have been carried out. Using rubber also gives the passengers inside the vehicle a more comfortable ride in the case of a tyre burst, which enables them to be in better shape to carry out their task.
The patented multi part design allows the fitter to change a tyre even at the side of the road without special tools.
Tyron’s rubber runflats incorporate a guaranteed beadlock which is over manufactured to prevents the wheel from slipping inside the tyre, this allows the vehicle to continue on its mission and get back to base which is not possible using other materials.
Tyron has developed a lubrication system to further improve the performance of the ATR.
Friction Shield is a sealed lubrication system, which bursts following a sudden tyre deflation and provides the right amount of lubricant to ensure that the tyre is not damaged further by reducing the heat generated by friction between the runflat and the inside of the tyre itself. Friction Shield enables the vehicle to keep moving over longer distances and at faster speeds.
Forgetting the lubricant, allowing it to dry out or become contaminated will reduce the runflat performance by up to 90%, Friction Shield ensures the right amount of clean, fresh lubricant is delivered when it is needed.
