Frank Redman & Sons Boosts Safety and Savings with Wheely-Safe Technology

In a stride towards enhanced road safety and operational efficiency, Frank Redman & Sons has reaped immediate benefits from their recent investment in Wheely-Safe's intelligent tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS).

The Bedfordshire-based aggregates business, a renowned contract haulier for the Tarmac Group, has reported significant savings from averting two potential tyre blowouts, thanks to the advanced alert system of Wheely-Safe.

The company, which operates a fleet of eight-wheel tippers and 6x2 tractor units, is in the midst of integrating this state-of-the-art technology. The primary goal? To bolster the health and safety standards of its operations, minimise downtime, and subsequently reduce fuel expenses.

Martin Redman, Owner of Frank Redman & Sons says: "We have the system installed on three of our tippers so far and five tractor units, which are pulling bulk trailers. It has already given us great results.

"On two separate occasions it has saved us from a potential blow out. As soon as the pressure dropped in the tyres, the alert started flashing in the cab and allowed the driver to pull over safely to inspect the issue. If he had carried on running as usual, it could have easily ruined the sidewall and we'd be looking at buying a new tyre. The financial savings soon tot up."

Frank Redman & Sons has specified Wheely-Safe's external TPMS sensors, which replace the valve cap and auto-pair with an in-cab solar receiver.

The company's drivers are also utilising Wheely-Safe's handy Pressure and Brake Temperature Checkers, as well as WalkAround Checkers for their daily inspections.

"The whole system is so easy to use and really simple to fit," adds Redman. "It's been a great addition to our operation."
