At Ranger Products, tire inflation cages are constructed with your safety in mind and the safety of your employees. They meet strict OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.177 requirements for tire service workplace safety and can accommodate virtually every type of tire and wheel combination ranging from small passenger vehicle tires to long-haul truck, bus, off-road and military tires. The RIC-4716 inflation cage is designed using 2-3/8" diameter, high-yield, seamless steel tubing with expansion properties to ensure strength, durability and safety. The gradual upper-arched mandrel bent tube design yields maximum space and is engineered to withstand and contain wheel and tire projectiles under extreme tire ruptures preventing potential injuries or deaths. The RIC-4716 stands 49-1/2" tall and 21" wide and features four welded-steel bars in order to meet the demansd of all wheel service shops. It can handle tires with a maximum width of 16" and maximum diameter of 47" delivering full-capability performance. A solid-steel welded-steel base features a full-width angle-iron wheel cradle to keep the wheel safely contained within the inflation cage during all inflation procedures.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Exploding tires have a high potential for severe injury and death. Tire inflation safety cages are a mandatory precaution for safe tire inflation.
