PRLog - April 16, 2014 - CARNFORTH, U.K. -- Reducing the risk of wheel damage, loss and detachment is at the core of the ongoing commercial vehicle customer service programme from Checkpoint® The Company view wheel fixing maintenance as an important part of any maintenance schedule and product application is always developed with this in mind.
Dustite products for wheel nut protection and loose nut indication
“A promise to protect with simple solutions” is a guiding philosophy for the organisation. Training days, workshops and presentations provide operations, maintenance and driving personnel with the opportunity to develop product knowledge and application as part of their routine wheel maintenance.
Some of the Checkpoint overriding messages are that maintenance isn’t a costly nuisance and loss of wheels, are not a mystery! “Our range of wheel safety products” said Mike Marczynski, Checkpoint MD “can and will improve the safety and security of wheels”
According to *VOSA/TRL, these simple solutions could benefit the industry by helping to eliminate wheel detachment and generate a cost benefit of between £5.8m -£13.9m annually.
