Alliance Truck Parts Adds Coiled and Straight Air Hoses
May 2012, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Alliance Truck Parts now offers coiled and straight air hose assemblies, gladhands and related accessories for Class 6-8 heavy-duty trucks.
The new line of air hoses is engineered to perform in temperatures as low as 40 below zero, where many hoses become brittle and fail. They also feature heavy-gauge spring guards to protect against kinks. Optional features include colored anti-kink gladhand grips, and an extended brass handle on the trailer lead to facilitate easier trailer connections with less stress on the fitting and air tube linings.
In addition to SAE-rated straight aluminum gladhands, angle-mount gladhands for trailer nose applications are available, and shutoff gladhands, common for rear-trailer converter dolly hookups, are also offered. Other air hose program accessories include a variety of hose/cable mounting suspension devices such as spring tender kits, slide bars, pogo sticks, clamps and connector stowage components to help facilitate proper installation.
To consolidate both air and electrical hookups, Alliance Truck Parts offers its 3-in-1 AirPower line which includes air hoses and an ABS-rated 7-way green electrical cable assembly. The three lines are joined together in a durable spiral wrap, offering protection against rubbing, tangling and incidental damage.
In support of the new air hose program, the Alliance Truck Parts cross-reference tool now includes updated information for customers to determine the best working- and lead-length coiled air hose for their tractor-to-trailer connections. Driven by industry-wide data from the Alliance Truck Parts all-makes cross-reference tool, finding the right replacement part number is just a click away.
