TSS Runflat Systems

TSS International BV, based in the Netherlands, are experts and world leaders in civilian and paramilitary vehicle safety solutions based on the slogan: Armour Mobility. These solutions include, but are not limited to, runflat systems for armoured vehicles. Several of TSS’ products have been tested and approved by TüV in Germany and all runflat systems comply to the Finabel 20.A.5 and/or the A.20.A standards.

RUNFLAT SYSTEMS

The purpose of a runflat system is to let a vehicle get to safety by enabling it to be driven with one or more deflated tyres over a certain distance. A runflat system provides mobility in situations in which standing still is not an option by extending the life of the tyre in deflated mode. This is accomplished by supporting the tyre-tread so the wheel rims do not damage the sidewalls. The runflat system is mounted securely on the rim inside the tyre and is only in contact with the tyre when it is deflated. A runflat system is not a replacement or a substitute for a tyre.

When the tyres of your vehicle are fully inflated, runflat systems do not affect the handling of the vehicle. Their added value only becomes apparent when tyres are deflated due to damage or attacks. The proprietary material compound is strong enough to handle ballistic attacks and can support the weight of a fully armoured vehicle.

Runflat systems are designed for tubeless tyres. Balancing the wheel assembly remains a simple process after installing the runflat system. Most runflat systems can be fitted in harmony with the Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) of the vehicle.

Various applications include fitment on armoured VIP limousines, armoured 4×4 vehicles, military vehicles, cash-in-transit vehicles, airport people movers, fire brigade crash tenders for airports, police vehicles and many more.

Runflat systems are easily fitted to standard wheels and tyres, and are available for wheels with diameters ranging from 14-inch up to 24.5in.

HEAVY DUTY BRAKE SYSTEMS AND HEAVY DUTY WHEELS

Armouring a vehicle can make it more difficult to control. The extra weight of protection affects the vehicle’s braking performance drastically. The original brake pads and discs will overheat and compromise the security of your vehicle. Also, the strength of the wheels has to be considered. Many wheels may break under the pressure of 4,000kg of armour. TSS International has a solution for these two problems: the combination of Heavy Duty Wheels and Heavy Duty Brake Systems will assure your armoured vehicle (payload in excess of 6,000kg) will stop just as well as, or better than a standard, non-armoured vehicle. Also, the Heavy Duty Wheels are especially designed for optimum performance with runflat systems, which means will they keep you (and your very important passengers) moving under the most hazardous of situations. Wheels, Brakes and Runflat Systems sold by TSS are all designed in coordination with each other to maximise your lifesaving mobility.

EXPLOSION-SUPPRESSANT AND SELF-SEALING FUEL TANKS

TSS ProtecTank® explosion-suppressant fuel tanks are converted using a flexible polyurethane (polyether) safety foam with fully open pores, composed of a skeletal network of tiny lightweight interconnecting strands which act as a three-dimensional fire screen.

OEM fuel tanks can be equipped with a specially developed fuel-swellable foam to give the maximum protection level. With this specially developed coating, leakage is limited to a few drops when the fuel tank is punctured or shot at, or after encountering other heavy impacts or attacks.
