Tipton, UK – British warehouse truck company Flexi Narrow Aisle has recently selected Continental Specialty Tyres to supply original equipment tires for its Flexi AC range globally.
Under a strategic partnership, Continental Specialty Tyres will now be supplied on every Flexi produced.
“Continental press on bands are the optimal tires for stationary stability when dealing with heavy duty operations,” said a company statement.
In particular, the truck maker highlighted its selection of the Continental MH20 tire for its stability, load-bearing, vibration, traction, service life and rolling resistance properties.
The company’s articulated truck range covers from 1.3 to 2.5 tonnes capacity, with lift heights from 3 to 14 metres. Its ‘True Radius’ design, meanwhile, is said to provide maximum aisle clearance and therefore travel speed, and turn quickly with 220° of articulation.
These features place heavy demands on the tires to ensure a long service life for customers, who are under increasing pressure to reduce operational costs and vehicle downtime, said Flexi Narrow Aisle.
