DSEI Japan: Tyron Runflat introduces ATR-Custom

Posted 18 November 2019 · Add Comment

Tyron Runflat Ltd has introduced a new All Terrain Runflat (ATR) multi-piece solution to its ATR runflat product portfolio at DSEI Japan (18th to 20th November).


Above : Tyron has introduced the new ATR-Custom rubber Runflat at DSEI Japan, in the UK Pavilion.

Called the ATR-Custom, the new system is designed for vehicles fitted with standard single-piece wheels as an alternative to Tyron Multibands or third-party plastic-type runflats.
The two-piece runflat solution does not require a hydraulic press to squeeze the runflat in and out of the tyre, making it field-mountable and demountable and minimising the logistics footprint of armoured vehicles.

The ATR-Custom is made of rubber which gives extra protection to off-road 4x4 and military vehicles. Unlike plastic or composite materials, rubber absorbs the shocks encountered with kerb strikes and pot-holes and in the off-road environment, drastically reducing vibration and stresses that can transmit through the runflat to the wheels, suspension, axels and drive shafts. Rubber is far superior, offering a much smoother ride for the vehicle driver and occupants, and a lesser degree of wear and tear on the vehicle. Additionally, as rubber is a compliant material, it prevents damage to the tyre itself caused by impingement between the runflat and the inside of the tyre.

“The ATR-Custom is a new alternative for users seeking a multi-part runflat for military vehicles that do not have multi-piece wheels,” said Richard Glazebrook, Chief Executive of Tyron Runflat Ltd.
“We are pleased to introduce this new solution at DSEI Japan, which is a market in which we see great opportunities for growth for our company.”

Tyron is exhibiting its full range of All Terrain Rubber (ATR) Runflats at DSEI Japan, including its patented multi-piece unit, the ATR-MP and the Carbon-ATR, which reduces the total runflat weight by up to 40% by replacing the steel spine with a carbon fibre one, making it the lightest rubber runflat in the world.
