Harrow-based Desi Coaches has protected its entire fleet with the latest generation Wheely-Safe technology.
The public transport operator has installed the in-motion wheel loss detection system, which combines brake and hub temperature monitoring with an intelligent tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), to maintain best practice in health & safety and compliance across its business.
Nilesh Patel, director at Desi Coaches says: “I’d heard about the technology in the media a little while ago and thought it sounded like an excellent product. Then recently I saw that it had been recognised by the DVSA so decided it was time to get it installed.
“We take the safety of our passengers and other road users very seriously. A lot of our work is with local schools, transporting children, and we want to guarantee we are running the safest possible vehicles. To have one simple-to-use system in place that protects us against any issues with the wheel or tyre is just good sense.”
Desi Coaches has opted for Wheely-Safe’s external TPMS sensors, which replace the valve cap and auto-pair with an in-cab solar receiver. These are fitted alongside a pair of wheel loss sensors on each wheel. Diagnostic software built into the receiver lets the business know all sensors are working and paired correctly.
The company’s own in-house mechanics fitted the system, following a brief demonstration from Wheely-Safe technicians.
