no water, no ice,
Water and ice prevention on truck roofs
Airtube: A proven solution
Airtube is an inflatable tube installed between the roof beams and the tarpaulin.
Creating a pointed roof shape while parked which prevents water accumulation on the roof.
Airtube is patented and proven effective for over 10 years.
All drivers are familiar with the phenomenon of ice on the roof. In several countries, platforms are available at resting places to remove the ice – but by no means everywhere, and never when you most need one. Drivers also seldom set aside time to clear the ice off the roof, which presents several risks. The ice is guaranteed to slide off en route. The sharp ice sheets can fly anywhere. This may result in personal injury and extensive damage. With the Airtube, your drivers can take to the road safely.

Easy does it with Airtube
Imagine. Your driver parks the HGV. The Airtube under the roof tarpaulin fills with compressed air and pushes up the centre of the roof tarpaulin across the entire length, so that water runs off the roof and any condensation on the inside flows into the rail. Heading off again? The Airtube can be deflated again within 2.5 minutes, either fully automatically or using a handle. Ready for a dry and carefree journey!
