Where you’ll find puncture proof tyres
Puncture proof wheels are popular in many workplaces where there is a need for long term function without the risk of downtime. That’s why puncture proof is a popular option for hand trucks, wheelbarrows and even large lawnmowers. In areas with plenty of puncture hazards like construction sites, puncture proofs are typically opted for where possible. But factories and warehouses can also create issues for wheeled equipment, especially in areas like loading bays.
A loose screw or nail can take out an air-filled standard wheel, whereas a puncture proof wheel that’s foam filled will keep going. Changing a flat tyre takes time, so removing this issue with a puncture proof wheel can be a cost saving measure, and not just a matter of convenience.
Industries that choose Wheelco
We provide puncture proof wheels to everyone from construction to manufacturing, landscaping to logistics. If your business needs to avoid punctures to a piece of load carrying equipment, these wheels are right for you.
Important note on puncture proof wheels
Puncture proof wheels have a mixture of foam and rubber, giving them the puncture proof abilities. This design also gives a degree of give/flex, and they are more lightweight than solid rubber. Therefore this wheel type appeals to delivery drivers, couriers and similar industries. But their biggest drawback is that they cannot handle loads left on them 24/7 as they will then tend to flatspot -that’s just due to the composition not being “solid”. If you need a load carried on wheels constantly, consider our other wheel categories or get in touch with the team for more specific guidance.
Advice for buying puncture proof wheels online
If you’re researching puncture proof wheels and/or tyres, here’s some useful tips to get you started:
Make sure you know the bore diameter of your equipment so you choose the right puncture proof wheel for your axle or mount.
Determine the size of the wheel you need for sufficient clearance and compatibility with your equipment.
What is the load weight you’ll be carrying with the equipment? Ensure the puncture proof tyre is rated for a weight that combined with the number of wheels, can safely hold your expected loads. Allow 25-30% as a buffer.
Do you need an offset hub to fit your equipment properly?
What sort of tread do you need in your tyre? Will you be clearing uneven surfaces or rolling across certain material? Having a deeper tread may suit places like grounds or construction sites, whilst a shallow, smoother tread may provide easier movement on a flat factory floor for example.
Can you order the volume required for a large fleet of equipment if needed?
Wheelco can help guide you through these questions so you make the right purchase decisions.
