GRI is proud to announce the launch of two new cutting-edge material handling tires at CeMAT.
With the advancement of customer needs and to take its flagship GLOBESTAR tire into the next-generation, GLOBESTAR Wide Tread (WT) was conceptualized and developed by observing the market and listening to customers. GRI found that the market had an increasing need for wide-tread tires to support the demands of high load carrying capacity, extensive tire life and enhanced stability. The GLOBESTAR WT is a universal solid tire that consistently delivers assured performance. It is one of the widest tires in the industry. The wide-tread and flat crown radius is designed for maximum tire life. The deep lugs of GLOBESTAR WT serve to give the best traction with high stability in normal working environments. The wide-tread also prevents tire distortion while cornering. GLOBESTAR WT is built with natural-rubber compounds that ensure good resilience and high tensile strength.
XPT SS is the ultimate skid-steer tire. It is a premium pneumatic skid-steer tire developed for demanding use and engineered to provide the best in performance with outstanding machine stability. It is designed with extra deep directional tread and curved lugs that provide excellent traction and durability. This premium pneumatic skid-steer tire also features an extra thick sidewall, reducing stress cracking and deflecting debris to better protect the tire.
GRI’s LIFTEX pneumatic material handling tires on the other hand have been developed for heavy duty use on forklift trucks. The tread design provides a massive footprint and a unique lug pattern that assures optimal grip and traction in every condition. The sidewalls are enhanced by multiple layers of reinforcement and a wide rim guard. The increased footprint, contact area and the reinforce sidewall ensure high load carrying capacity.
