Ken-Tool Corp. has introduced the (P/N 36010) 5-bar Super Magnum cage, helping raise the safety of truck tire service to a new level, the company says.
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%. This is achieved with expanded steel mesh deflection barriers welded to the insides of the cage tubing.
Ken-Tool also offers the 36009 5-bar Magnum which is structurally and dimensionally identical to the 5-bar Super Magnum, but does not include the screen mesh barrier.
The Magnum cages are 48 inches long, 30 inches wide and 56-1/4 inches tall. They are designed to provide more inside clearance for the new generation of super single and super wide-base truck tires, with their higher inflation pressures and air volumes.
Both cages are rated to 130 psi, and meet the OSHA Standard No. 29 CFR Part 1910.177 regulations.
