Tyre Pressure Monitoring for Bikes

October 27th, 2010 No comments

Tyre Pressure monitoring is an important procedure to ensure the safety of all vehicles. Checking tyre pressure on a regular basis is essential to avoid unnecessary blowouts. By investing a small amount in a Tyre Pressure Monitoring device, this could save thousands of pounds in replacement tyres.

One such device that does this is PressurePro, a device that continually reads tyre pressures and reports readings via Radio Frequency (RF). Audible and visual alerts warn drivers to low or high tyre pressures. Further to adding greater safety and convenience to vehicles, other significant benefits from maintaining the correct pressure include increased fuel efficiency, extended tyre life, decreased maintenance, diminished downtime and reduced emissions.

 aide automotive has been stocking this product for a number of months now and it’s proving to be a successful product.  Now there is a new product that they’re about to launch to motor cycle owners, PressurePro Motor Cycle Monitor. PressurePro’s 6 wheel ‘Moto’ Monitor allows users to monitor up to 6 wheel positions allowing easy monitoring of motorcycles.

PressurePro Monitors are capable of reading pressures from 10 psi to 199 psi, provide two levels of low pressure alerts (the first at 12.5% and the second at 25% drop in pressure), and can display pressures in PSI, BAR or kPa. The ‘Moto’ Monitor features a built-in antenna and weatherproof casing for added versatility. Light sensors automatically adjust the Monitor’s brightness to allow for maximum readability and safety for all riding conditions.

 Matthew Burke of aide automotive says PressurePro is already a popular product with our client base so we’re really impressed with this new product aimed at motorcycle drivers.  Tyre Pressure Monitoring is an important procedure for any driver, but a blow out on a motorbike can have serious consequences which makes PressurePro Motorcycle Monitor an essential item for the Motocyclist!

Fuel theft common problem especially with fuel prices rising!

October 7th, 2010 No comments

Fuel theft is an expensive loss for any business but with fuel prices rising yet again, preventative measures to deter thieves are essential if businesses want to avoid the costs associated with such a theft. The theft of fuel from a vehicle doubles the cost of fuel with businesses paying out originally for the fuel, then again for a replacement tank!

The beginning of October sees the eighth fuel duty increase since March 2007 with another one planned for three months time. These rises make fuel theft more common as fuel becomes an even more valuable commodity.

Investment in a fuel theft device such as TP Anti-syph takes away these concerns of fuel theft. For a small investment you can save your business thousands of pounds in stolen fuel. This device is simple to fit, taking no more than a few minutes, with no drilling or gluing to a fuel tank.
