AirBoss Benefits

Damaged tyres will never halt work again

Picture this. You are using pneumatic tyres and you puncture the rubber. Work is put on hold until either the tyre can be replaced, or even worse, a call-out arrives to make repairs.

If you were using the AirBoss system, and you managed to a rubber segment, you could keep going. Actually, you could keep going even if you damaged up to 3 or 4 segments.

With AirBoss you don't have to put the work on hold, nor wait for a call-out vehicle to arrive. You can keep going until it is convenient to replace the damaged segments, which you can do in minutes!

Benefits of using segmented tyres

  • Longevity – AirBoss tyres typically last four times longer.
  • Safety – no need to jack up a machine to repair a puncture, just replace the segment by rotating the wheel and unbolting it.
  • Weight – AirBoss is focused on keeping additional weight on the machine to a bare minimum. It can offer substantial weight savings over traditional foam filled or solid tyres, not only caring for the machine but its operators too.
  • Cost implications – You will spend a lot of time researching you ideal machine and have all of the necessary additions fitted to ensure maximum output with minimal downtime. With a little extra investment, AirBoss tyres will bring you the returns you expect from all aspects of your machine.

How AirBoss Tyres Save You Money

The wheel rims are tailored to your vehicle or fleet. After this initial investment, you don't need to buy new wheels or tyres again: just replacement rubber segments.

For a fraction of the price the of a new tyre, the segments can be purchased individually, making this a far more cost effective option in no time at all for a cost conscious company.

Once the system is purchased, it belongs to you. AirBoss provides a responsive after sales and refurbishing service. AirBoss also offers a leasing option for cash-conscious companies or users.

And Save You Time...

In the worst-case scenario, if a rubber segment is damaged.

The vehicle operator has two choices:

  • To continue using the vehicle until the end of the shift and then replace the segment.
  • To hop out of the vehicle, unscrew the segment bolt, and replace it with a new segment within minutes.

AirBoss eliminates long delays, waiting for the whole tyre to be replaced.

Cut costs by filling fewer disposal trucks with more rubber.

The carcass of a pneumatic tyre is made from bonded wire and nylon, which when recycled has to be separated. This creates a high cost and also uses up unnecessary resources, making the disposal of these tyres very expensive.

With AirBoss the segments are made from a metal insert which is then moulded in to 100% rubber, eliminating all of the above problems because even if you do have a damaged segment, then all that is required is a new insert of the rubber component. Furthermore, the damaged segment is recyclable and is not expensive to dispose of - another benefit of using AirBoss tyres!

AirBoss: the greener tyre

Since the 2003 EU Landfill Directive it is illegal to send whole tyres to landfill sites. Then from July 2006 it became illegal to send shredded tyres to landfill sites.

AirBoss can provide OEMs with just the option for lower carbon emissions, minimal waste rubber and significantly reduced maintenance costs.

With AirBoss segments you benefit from:

Disposing of less rubber

Because only individual segments are being replaced, rather than entire tyres, the quantity of rubber for disposal is dramatically reduced.

Less CO2 emissions

Operators maintain their own tyres with the segmented-tyre system. There is never a need to call out a separate repair vehicle onto site, which clearly avoids unnecessary CO2 emissions.

"Although initiatives such as cryogenic reprocessing have been developed, environmental issues remain an important factor to people that deal with tyres. AirBoss has been keen to approach the issue head-on and our system provides a way for big manufacturers to do their bit." Don Gillanders, AirBoss CEO

Why Using These Tyres Resolves the Waste Disposal Nightmare

Disposing of waste tyres, especially the size of those used by your vehicles can be a headache.

It is now illegal to send tyres (shredded or whole) to landfills for disposal.

For many companies this means hiring a council disposal truck to collect these tyres for recycling. Unfortunately, these trucks are expensive, even more so for larger tyres which occupy the most space.

We've even heard of some construction companies filling disposal trucks with only 100 waste tyres – what a waste of money!

Using AirBoss tyres will:

  • Cut costs by filling fewer disposal trucks with more rubber
  • Reduce the amount of rubber you need to dispose of
  • Minimise the damage you cause to the environment

Reduce the amount of rubber you need to dispose of

If you damage the rubber on an AirBoss tyre, you are only replacing one damaged segment. However, if you damage the rubber on a normal tyre, you have to replace the whole tyre.

So when you use AirBoss tyres you will dispose of much less rubber. This reduces costs and even helps the environment.

Reduce the damage you cause to the environment

Waste tyres are often set on fire. Unfortunately this releases harmful gases which pollute the atmosphere. If you use AirBoss tyres, you can reduce the damage you cause to the environment.

  • You will be disposing of far less rubber than other construction companies
  • You will considerably limit carbon emissions produced by call-out and recovery vehicles

The bigger our footprints, the better your handling

The AirBoss tyre system has a wider footprint than most pneumatic and foam tyres, giving you greatly improved control of their vehicles.

The segmented-tyre system comprises rubber segments individually bolted to a metal wheel rim, tailored to your vehicle or fleet of vehicles.

The big secret that foam-filled tyre manufacturers don't want you to know

You might think foam-filled tyres are a good alternative to pneumatic tyres. But did you know that with foam fill tyres you are doubling your weight of each wheel therefore putting enormous stress on your machine axles. With AirBoss the weight is cut dramatically and is therefore much more in line with your gear ratios.

Our segmented tyre system is comparable to the weighting of conventional tyres, so you'll never risk invalidating the warranty. In fact AirBoss tyres are a standard option for several leading manufacturers!
