Boost Efficiency With Superior Tires

Sept. 11, 2020
Trelleborg's next-generation tire lasts up to 30% longer than similar tires available on the market.

Trelleborg Wheel Systems launches the PS1000, its leading-edge tire solution for material handling applications. A press-on, solid forklift tire, it incorporates the Pit Stop Line innovation, specialized compounds, and a new design to guarantee uptime, efficiency, and safety for operators while reducing the total cost of ownership and environmental impact.


The PS1000 has two layers of compounds in its internal construction. One compound enhances comfort, guarantees low rolling resistance, and reduces heat build-up for maximum uptime, while the other ensures long tire life. With the addition of the Pit Stop Line innovation, customers can save time and money by avoiding early tire replacement and unnecessary downtime. When the Pit Stop Line’s highly visible orange band appears on the tire, this indicates that the tire has approximately 100 hours of life remaining, so operators and fleet managers know with 100% accuracy when their tires need replacing.


Featuring a two-tread pattern, the PS1000 comes in both smooth and traction versions. The smooth version offers excellent stability and comfort, as well as maximum service life thanks to its extra-deep tread and innovative cushion compound, along with its unique concave sidewall shape. The traction version offers the same features, but with higher traction to optimize performance in wet conditions.


Both the smooth and traction versions can be produced in different compounds—multipurpose, non-marking, electrically conductive, ProHD or Protex—making the tires suitable for numerous applications. They will be available on the global market in the coming months, starting with the smooth version in September 2020, followed by the traction version in the first quarter of 2021.
