Ken-Tool, the leader in tire servicing hand tools and equipment, has announced the expansion of its industry leading line of tire restraining devices with the introduction of the 36010 5-bar SUPER MAGNUM cage, helping raise the safety of truck tire service to a new level.
Testing has shown the SUPER MAGNUM cage reduces the side-force energy resulting from a catastrophic sidewall zipper rupture of a Super Wide-Base tire by 93 percent. The impressive reduction of side-force energy is achieved with expanded steel mesh deflection barriers welded to the insides of the cage tubing. The cage features 5 mandrel-bent, high-strength 12 gauge, 2-1/4” (5.7 cm) diameter structural steel tubes, welded to a 3/16” (0.48 cm) thick steel plate base with a 2.0” (5.08 cm) wide, 1/4” (0.635 cm) thick reinforcing strap welded to the tubes.
