What are Tyron Safety Bands?

Tyron safety bands

Tyron Safety Bands are a simple but effective safety device which can be potentially life-saving in the event of a tyre blowout or puncture. For many years, they have been used by the military and first response vehicles such as police cars and ambulances. They offer excellent safety benefits and the added peace of mind of knowing that you will have increased handling over your caravan, motorhome or trailer should you experience a damaged tyre.

Additionally some insurance companies offer a discount in premiums for caravans and motorhomes fitted with Tyron bands – for example, the Camping and Caravan Club offers a 10 per cent discount on insurance for caravans fitted with the safety device. So Tyron safety bands can save you money as well as – potentially – your life.

How do Tyron safety bands work?

Tyres are designed with a fitting well to allow them to be removed. When inflated, the air pressure inside the tyres holds them in place. However, when the air pressure drops as a result of a puncture, the tyre is able to move around and can even drop into the fitting well.

If this happens, the tyre falls off the wheel, severely reducing safety, traction, braking and handling ability. Tyron safety bands are fitted inside the tyre, filling the wheel well. They make it physically impossible for the tyre to come off should it deflate, providing peace of mind in the knowledge that you will be provided with run flat capability. This will enable you to travel to a safe stopping location.

Tyron safety bands are especially beneficial when fitted to caravans, trailers and motorhomes. Punctures on these vehicles, especially caravans and trailers, can be more dangerous than on cars because it is harder for you to detect the problem initially. This can result in putting both yourself and those around you in danger through the reduced handling ability of your vehicle. Tyron safety bands are a simple safety upgrade to your existing tyre and only need to be purchased once for your vehicle.
