Industrial tyre choice
Briggs stocks a full range of quality fork truck tyres and budgets to suit different handling applications. We work with some of europe's leading tyres manufacturers including Continental and Solideal to ensure access to the latest compounds and technology. Choosing good quality tyres over budgets is recommended in many applications since they last longer, offer lower rolling resistance, and reduce fuel consumption, however, we offer great value budget tyres for low utilisation applications. Whatever your business we offer a good choice and all tyres are very competitively priced.
Forklift tyre options
Forklift tyres are normally either pneumatic (air-filled) or solid (resilient or press on band). Pneumatic tyres particularly help absorb bumps and vibrations found on rough terrain. This provides increased comfort to the driver as well as reducing the risk of damage to the forklift and load. Solid tyres are better suited to indoor applications or where there is a high risk of tyre damage and puncture. Their construction offers reduced maintenance and low rolling efficiency on smooth surfaces. Certain tread compounds can maximise traction in cold store environments or be non-marking for use in operations that require extremely high levels of hygiene, such as food or chemical manufacturing operations. Anti-static tyre compounds are specified for use in potentially explosive atmospheres to prevent static ignition and other compounds are specified to reduce excessive heat build up which can make tyres slippery. Briggs can give you all the advice you need.
Latest Continental technology
We provide the innovative Continental CSEasy rapid fit tyre option, an award winning design that can be fitted with just a torque wrench and has no need for a mounting press. The system dramatically reduces the amount of vehicle downtime involved in changing a fork truck tyre. The CSEasy also provides advanced technical properties that give it low rolling resistance and a 40% longer life than a standard Continental tyre.
