Products on offer at the Air Spring Supply Company:
- Firestone Industrial/Agricultural Air springs and applications:
Firestone air springs improve countless industries by enabling technology to work more efficiently. They test their products rigorously for durability, high pressure, extreme temperature and more to foresee issues and exceed expectations for performance. That’s why their Airstroke actuators can withstand challenging environments from the hot and cold, to pothole filled roads, and deep in dust-filled mines. Firestone offers a variety of air spring solutions that are superior to pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders or standard coil springs. In the agricultural industry, you’ll find Firestone products on hay balers, planters, cultivators, conveyor systems and vibrating screens.
Their durable products stand up to the harsh conditions found on the farm, from pervasive dirt and dust to prolonged moisture. The unique capabilities of Firestone air springs make them ideal for friction-free, leak-free, flexible-force applications. For example, Firestone Airstroke actuators are used on hay balers, to adjust the belt tension and maintain bale density applying constant force as the bale diameter changes.
- Firestone – Heavy duty adjustable air helper kits for coil and leaf spring suspensions
With any Steel Suspension or Steel Suspension upgrade there is a compromise between load carrying capacity and a comfortable drive, especially in unloaded conditions. Loaded or unloaded, Firestone Air Helper Springs allows you maximum adjust-ability to give you the ride and handling you want when you want it.
These are the advantages of Firestone Air Helper Springs:
- Keep the vehicle level – improve steering control and braking effectiveness, level headlight beams and reduce tire wear.
- Level off-centre loads – individual inflation valves allow for adjustment side-to-side.
- Reduce suspension fatigue – keep leaf springs from permanent sagging under repeated or constant load.
- Air adjustment improves the ride – allowing the air springs to be matched to the load.
- Reduce bottoming out – protective air cushion softens contact between the axle and frame.
- Increase vehicle stability – absorbing road shock providing ideal ride conditions for passengers and load.
The Air Spring Supply Company has made a commitment to provide their customers with premium Firestone air helper spring kits. Each application is specifically designed to maximize the safe load carrying capacity, stability, and ride quality of the vehicle.
- Firestone Truck and Trailer Air Springs:
When it comes down to it, trucks are your livelihood and keeping your truck running and on the road is crucial. So you outfit them with only the best. Like genuine Firestone Airide air springs. The very first name in air springs and quite likely what your truck was originally built with. Truck manufacturers know and trust Airide so should you.
Firestone patented the first air spring in 1938, otherwise known as the Firestone Airide Air Spring. That’s one thing about being the first, the original, they set the standards and the bar is high. Comprehensive testing by Firestone Industrial Products shows that Genuine Firestone air springs outperform the competition but being the best simply isn’t good enough for Firestone. That’s why they continually work to develop new products with improved features, better materials and enhanced performance. Why Firestone air springs? The better question is why settle for anything less?
