Alliance adds coiled, straight air hoses
May 30, 2012 9:32 AM
Alliance Truck Parts now offers coiled and straight air hose assemblies, gladhands, and related accessories for Class 6-8 heavy-duty trucks.
The hoses and accessories complement Alliance’s line of coiled electrical cables. Each is manufactured to meet or exceed OES specifications with features designed to achieve real-world functionality in harsh trucking environments.
The new line of air hoses is engineered to perform in temperatures down to –40° F, 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; shutoff gladhands, common for rear-trailer converter dolly hookups, are also offered. Other air hose program accessories include various 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 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 in a durable spiral wrap, offering protection against rubbing, tangling, and incidental damage.
In support of the new air hose program, the Alliance cross-reference tool now includes updated information to determine the best working- and lead-length coiled air hose for tractor-to-trailer connections.
