Although snow chains are commonly used on commercial vehicles on the road during winter months, they can be difficult, time-consuming, and very inconvenient to install. If you’re looking for a snow chain system to stay safe in your commercial vehicle, consider the ROTOGRIP automatic tire chain system from RUD Chain, Inc. Let’s take a closer look at why ROTOGRIP is the tire chain system for you.
Snow chains have a fairly popular method of keeping vehicles on the road for a long time. However, there are a number of disadvantages inherent in their design. The primary problem with traditional snow chains is that they must be manually installed on every tire on your vehicle. As driving conditions improve, the chains then have to be manually uninstalled. This can take quite a bit of time to do when you drive an 18-wheel semi-truck! This is a huge inconvenience for drivers who need to be on the road as soon as possible. Truckers need to be able to meet deadlines for transporting cargo. School bus drivers, rescue vehicles, and public transportation vehicles also need to be able safely and quickly get around town. For these applications, snow chains are simply impractical.
Thankfully, traditional snow chains are no longer the only option available for drivers of heavy commercial vehicles. The ROTOGRIP automatic tire chain system eliminates several of the problems associated with traditional snow chains. The ROTOGRIP system utilizes a wheel-driven rotating chain carpet that functions the same way normal snow chains do. However, the system can be activated from the cabin of the vehicle, even while you’re in motion! With the flip of a switch, your commercial vehicle will be instantly protected by tire chains. When driving conditions improve, simply deactivate the system to retract the chains.
