Cats Whiskers have been tested by Dunlop, Michelin, Mintex Don, Systems Technology USA, and MIRA UK. This is what they said about our system:

It was exciting to see a Spray Suppressant perform so well in the spray tunnel. The Systems simplicity and light weight should make it a very desirable product.

cats-busEasy to fit, cost effective, keeps your drivers safe, and your lorries on the road instead on tomorrows newspaper headlines.

Help to keep you brand and your customers. You never know if your next customer is driving behind one of your vehicles.

how-it-works1Road spray by heavy goods vehicles is a major safety hazard. The wheels of trucks pick up water from the road and hurl it against the mud-guard and flap.The water breaks up into fine spray which is then blown out from the sides and rear of the vehicle to form a moving cloud of moisture. The spray obscures the view of overtaking drives, and the truck drivers rear vision.This is how Cats Whiskers fit onto your vehicles to stop this scenario from happening and giving everyone better visibility.
how-it-works2The unique all-polypropylene air/water separator filament fits close to the tyre and allows air to pass though but converts the spray mist into large droplets which fall back to the road.The slippery plastic filament constantly flex in the airstream, shedding dirt and debris. this self cleaning prevents weight increase and maintains effectiveness.Steered wheels are also very effectively treated as the tyres pass through the brush without damage. Ice and snow present no problem.

 

Here are what our customers say:

Joshua Tetley & SonJoshua Tetley & Son
Mr Walter Cox, transport engineer of Joshua Tetley & Son says he has found the system very favourable. This is what he says:“The drivers have commented that 20/20 Cats Whiskers makes the rear view much clearer. The plume of spray is kept down which aids visibility and keeps the lorries much cleaner – particularly the canopy sided vehicles – it improves the image of the vehicle and the juggernaughts as a whole”
Bently TransportBently Transport
Mr Roger Bently of Bently Transport, an owner/driver of Foden trucks says:“When I’m driving in the wet 20/20 Cats Whiskers really improves visibility in the rear view mirror. A truck drivers field of vision is just as clouded by spray from the truck as a car driver’s, and this new system gives me a better view of the traffic behind me, also the cab and door mirrors stay cleaner for longer”
J Long & Sons (Haulage ) LtdJ Long & Sons (Haulage ) Ltd
Mr Long, Director of J Long & Sons (Haulage ) Ltd says:“We are very pleased with the results obtained. The effectiveness of 20/20 Cats Whiskers has been shown in increased visibility for overtaking vehicles, and increased rearward veiw from the cab resulting in over all safer driving. As an added bonus, cleanliness of the vehicle is greatly improved”
