Super Magnum Cage Reduces Force by 93%

Oct. 21, 2013

The 36010 5-bar Super Magnum cage from Ken-Tool Corp. 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. The cage features five mandrel-bent, high-strength 12-gauge, 2-1/4-inch diameter structural steel tubes, welded to a 3/16-inch thick steel plate base with a 2-inch wide, 1/4-inch thick reinforcing strap welded to the tubes. The Magnum case is 48 inches long, 30 inches wide and 56-1/4 inches tall, and is 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.
