Sri Lanka tyre manufacturer introduces Peakmaster Snow tyre for winter season
Sri Lanka’s GRI has reportedly designed and developed a special material handling solid tyre to operate indoors and outdoors in snowy terrain.
According to reports, the Peakmaster Snow has proven to be an invaluable tyre that provides operational excellence in low temperatures and under harsh winter weather conditions. Reflecting GRI’s innovation and engineering ingenuity, the Peakmaster Snow was developed listening to very special customer needs and specifications.
Peakmaster Snow is a premium solid tyre that combines an innovative design and an advanced construction developed for high-performance in winter weather and snow conditions, local media reports stated.
GRI has developed samples with special compounds that function in sub-zero temperatures tested in specific regions over a complete winter season and proved its vitality and utility for material handling customers.
The tyre has special features including a wider tread width, which helps to improve stability, traction, and wet handling. The deep lugs provide exceptional traction in thick snow, and the centre lugs have been designed to provide a stronger grip and prevent slipping. The lengthy centre grooves create smooth path for snow flow and better self-cleaning. Furthermore, the parallel shallow grooves prevent snow clogs, and the middle grooves are designed for an excellent grip on snow, local media reports further stated.
“GRI continues to provide what customers require in their tyres by listening to their needs. We are dedicated to continuous research and development together with an innovation mindset using the latest theories in tyre technology. GRI is committed to delivering the best tyres in the industry, while ensuring sustainability of our solutions for generations to come,” GRI Managing Director Prabhash Subasinghe has been quoted as saying.
GRI produces high-grade specialty tyres that are built sustainably using pure natural rubber in Sri Lanka. Founded in 2002, the company produces material handling solid tyres, radial agriculture tyres, and construction tyres.
GRI also has operations in nine countries and a business presence in more than 50 countries worldwide.
Sri Lanka’s rubber industry, especially the rubber based production industry, have shown a growth momentum despite challenges posed by the global Covid 19 pandemic. The many trade agreements as well as trade concessions enjoyed by the country have also helped the growth momentum of the country’s rubber and rubber based products industry. The government of Sri Lanka has also introduced many incentives to further develop the industry. With Sri Lanka emerging as a business destination in the South Asian region, foreign businesses/investors could explore opportunities in Sri Lanka’s rubber and rubber based products industry.
