ADVANTAGES AND APPLICATIONS OF RUN-FLAT:
-Run-Flat is a technology which helps armoured vehicles with tyres blown or damaged by firearms under dire circumstances calling for high security, escape from the imminent danger scene fast and without loss of control.
-When a tyre, the so-called RFT, blows out, this technology prevents harm coming to the rim by thwarting its contact with the ground and lets the vehicle continue with its journey.
-It absorbs the energy released by landmine explosions and thereby reduces the damage.
-It insures a safe drive under weather conditions below zero.
Run-Flat: Is a rubber fill inserted in between the rim and the wheel of an armoured vehicle, as a safeguard to give it one last chance to move forward, when at least one of its tyres gets massively damaged, or explodes or breaks into pieces.
At the present, the demand for Run-Flat tyres shows a constant rise, year over year. Especially the recent boost in the demand for this particular tyre technology in 4×4, 6×6, 8×8 armoured all-terrain vehicles has caused an increase in the demand for mechanisms to install and remove RFT. In an attempt to respond to this evolving need, the Company has produced and introduced to the market its first generation of Run-Flat installation-removal machines.
