Super Magnum tire cage reduces side force by 93%


Ken-Tool Corp. has introduced the 36010 5-bar Super Magnum cage, helping raise the safety of truck tire service to a new level the company says.

Testing has shown the Super Magnum cage reduces the side-force energy resulting from a catastrophic sidewall zipper rupture of a super wide-base tire by 93%. This is achieved with expanded steel mesh deflection barriers welded to the insides of the cage tubing. 

The cage features five mandrel-bent, high-strength 12-gauge, 2-1/4-inch diameter structural steel tubes, welded to a 3/16-inch thick steel plate base with a 2-inch wide, ¼-inch thick reinforcing strap welded to the tubes. 

Ken-Tool also offers the 36009 5-bar Magnum which is structurally and dimensionally identical to the 5-bar Super Magnum, but does not include the screen mesh barrier.

The Magnum cages are 48 inches long, 30 inches wide and 56-1/4 inches tall. They are designed to provide more inside clearance for the new generation of super single and super wide-base truck tires, with their higher inflation pressures and air volumes.

Both cages are rated to 130 psi, and meet the O.S.H.A. Standard No. 29 CFR Part 1910.177 regulations.

Ken-Tool has produced a YouTube video to illustrate the Super Magnum at
