The latest generation of the Wheely-Safe wheel loss detection system has become one of the first products to be recognised by DVSA via the award of its DVSA Recognised label.
In the format accredited by DVSA, Wheely-Safe combines brake and hub temperature monitoring with an intelligent tyre pressure warning system. DVSA introduced the DVSA Recognised label earlier in 2022 to enable non-statutory road safety products to be recognised as being “well designed and delivered with genuine potential to improve road safety.”
The latest generation Wheely-Safe equipment is telematics ready, bringing increased opportunity for connectivity and reporting, the supplier notes.
Adds Group Director Gary Thomas: “We founded the business in 2010 with the goal to develop low cost, easy to use and easy to fit, highly durable and extremely effective solutions that can have a real impact on improving road safety.
“The ultimate aim was to end the global issue of wheel loss once and for all, while also tackling wheel and temperature issues – the largest cause of fires in commercial vehicles after the engine.
“We are now well on the way to hitting those targets. Today, our patented sensor technology is being adopted across many areas of road transport – protecting thousands of PSVs and HGVs both in the UK and internationally. To have our products recognised by DVSA is a hugely important step on our journey.”
