WheelRight to showcase tyre pressure monitoring solution at CV Show

Developed in conjunction with Highways England, the technology has recently concluded a successful year-long trial at WelcomeBreak Keele services on the southbound M6.

The pilot study found that more than a quarter of Britain's cars have at least one tyre that is dangerously under-inflated while HGVs are typically running with at least one under-inflated tyre at any one time.

A recent study, conducted by the Road Safety Observatory, found that the UK sees approximately 25 deaths and nearly 1,500 serious accidents every year as a direct result of defective or poorly inflated tyres.

WheelRight’s technology presents CV operators with a simple, ‘just drive-over’ solution for improving vehicle safety and cutting costs with daily tyre pressure checks. 

John Catling, WheelRight’s chief executive, said: “We’re looking forward to showcasing our monitoring technology at the CV Show. The impressive take-up of our system at Keele demonstrates that there is a real appetite in the CV industry for a quick and easy means of monitoring tyre condition.

“We’re demonstrating to CV operators that there is a simple and cost-effective way of checking your fleet’s tyre pressures on a daily basis.”
