The Safety Executive (HSE) requires fleet managers to regularly inspect vehicles in accordance with manufacturers’ recommendations.
Tyres must be checked regularly, then replaced as necessary, with procedures for reporting defects and prompt remedial action. TreadReader Tyre Measurement products produce accurate and detailed information about the condition of all tyres on a fleet vehicle to ensure correct tyre maintenance and driver safety.
The TreadReader Hand Held scanner and Drive Over ramp provide fleet operators with the means to accurately measure and record tyre wear. This matters because the replacement of worn tyres is vital, as is the early detection of undue wear and tear which can reduce the life of the tyre and increase a fleet’s running cost.
Fleet managers will know that tyres are the second most costly vehicle consumable expense after fuel. In fact, tyres account for around 35% of a car’s overall maintenance budget, so prolonging the healthy life of tyres is certainly sound practice.
