BRANCHBURG, NJ (October 7, 2010) – The global leader in cargo control solutions for the transportation industry, Kinedyne Corporation is now offering the remarkably rugged GRIP LINK™ line of heavy duty tire chains to both trucking fleet operators and drivers throughout the United States. GRIP LINK chains are engineered to stand up to the most demanding road conditions – including mud, snow, sleet and hail – as proven through years of in-field service following the 2004 launch of the line to the company’s Canadian distributors.
Available in V-Bar and Square Link tire chains for highway use, and Stud chains for off-road conditions, these high-strength, carbon steel chains are case hardened for extra long wear-life. Manufactured to exceed industry performance standards, GRIP LINK chains are the ideal solution for situations ranging from carting trees off a hillside logging site, to powering a shunt truck across a muddy yard, to steering a heavy-duty rig through 18-inches of mountain snow.
“GRIP LINK chains provide a higher safety factor for anyone needing to transport materials in adverse conditions,” says Larry Harrison, Kinedyne’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “These chains offer exactly what a professional driver wants, including greater stability, increased safety, and expanded durability. In many instances, having a pair of tire chains can save drivers time and money when they risk being out of compliance with state and local highway regulations that mandate use of tire chains over mountains and hills. And, installation of our chains is simple and easy, since each set comes with step-by-step instructions.”
GRIP LINK chains are available in two widths – 22.5 inches and 24.5 inches – and come in Single and Dual-Triple tire designs, featuring twist-tightening cams on every set of chains, which provide for easier overall tensioning and adjustment.
Another significant benefit to this rugged line of tire chains is their accessibility. While many other tire chains are sold as seasonal products – with a window of opportunity to purchase inventory only during certain seasons – GRIP LINK chains will be available year-round to all Kinedyne distributors. All chains are sold in “Easy Carry Easy Store” plastic or metal pails, which represent a significantly better storage option than traditional burlap bag packaging used by many other tire chain suppliers. The pails feature color-coded labels which clearly indicate the specific width and design of the various types of chains.
