The optimal answer for every requirement: Continental offers an extensive suite of tires designed for warehousing operations.
Warehousing encompasses a wide variety of items from consumer goods to manufacturing supplies and almost every product in between.
With Just in Time (JIT) delivery the fork lift fleets and tires are put under intense use with long runs, loaded and unloaded, as well as multi shift operations. The Warehouse surfaces are generally well kept with finished, sealed, and sometimes painted floors that are kept clear of debris and garbage. However angle iron guides and dock plates are a continuous problem with tires used in these operations. In conclusion non-marking (clean) tires are often used in this application to keep the warehouse environment clean and simple to maintain. Continental's engineering features allow for reduced operating costs, through technologies such as lowered rolling resistance, ease of maintenance, durable tread compounds and tire constructions and much more.
The SC20 Energy+ offers exceptionally low rolling resistance and low heat buildup. This relates to extended tire life and reduced cost per hour. (More hours in between changes and lower fuel consumption).
SC20 Super Clean and Barum Clean
Continental’s SC20 Super Clean offers nonmarking performance in warehouse operations. The tire, due to being reinforced with Silicates rather than Carbon Black will not leave black marks on the floor. The Clean compound also offers low rolling resistance and low heat buildup.
The improved tire construction of the SC20 Energy+ already provides an increase in mileage performance of up to 20%. The special design of the CSEasy can increase this by a further 20% to 40%. With CSEasy your vehicle’s energy consumption can be lowered by up to 12.8% due to its substantially reduced rolling resistance and the plastic adapter helps to limit the heat transference within the tyre and, therefore, heat buildup.
