Wheel Nut Indictors

In a recent staff meeting, it was raised that we needed a solution that allowed for easy inspection of our vehicles wheel nuts, and a solution has been found.

We have purchase and fitted yellow indictors that will assist in daily walk-round inspection, defect reporting and scheduled maintenance requirements. Their use allows accurate monitoring for loose wheel nuts and helps prevent wheel hub damage or the loss of a wheel, should a wheel nut loosen. An additional safety feature of the indicator is that they are heat sensitivity, when higher than normal operational temperature are reached the indicator is designed to melt indicating an imminent bearing failure or brake issues.

We are 50% through the roll out with all vehicle to be fitted in the coming weeks.
