Tyre pressure monitoring specialist TyrePal has been awarded accredited supplier status by the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS).
The company offers commercial tyre pressure monitoring systems.
FORS is a voluntary accreditation scheme for commercial vehicle operators, who focus on safety, efficiency, and environmental protection. It offers three levels of accredited membership, encouraging operators to work towards best practice.
TyrePal's TeleTPMS remotely monitors the tyre pressures of commercial vehicles.
Each tyre pressure is measured when stationary and mobile, and transmitted via GPS to a remote database where it can later be retrieved for analysis.
Data can be viewed by the fleet manager and the driver. The system not only provides continuous monitoring, but also gives alerts for high pressure, low pressure, fast leakage of air or high temperature.
These alerts can be delivered to the fleet manager by text or email.
Peter Tillotson, business development manager for TyrePal, said: “FORS accreditation means we have been recognised for the increases in safety and efficiency we provide.
“With proper monitoring of the tyre, failures including blowouts could be predicted and avoided.
"Under-inflated tyres drastically reduce fuel efficiency, costing both the environment and the operator. TeleTPMS measures data frequently, leading to better fuel economy, increased tyre service life and fewer accidents.”
