03/08/2011 | TISS TRIUMPH AT BRAKE FLEET SAFETY FORUM AWARDS
TISS Limited are delighted that their TankSafe ‘Impregnable’ Fuel Security & Safety Device won the Fleet Safety Product Award at this year’s Brake ‘Fleet Safety Forum’ Awards.
Accepting the award, Managing Director Ryan Wholey stated: ‘I am thrilled to be collecting such a prestigious award. The award is testament to all of the staff at TISS who have worked so hard in developing this product over the past few years’.
The Awards are now in their 11th year and TISS joined a long line of previous highly renowned winners of the Fleet Safety Product Award which includes Michelin Tyres and Brigade Electronics. TISS’ award is made all the more special coming in the category that received the highest number of applications from the 11 awards given out on the evening.
The TankSafe ‘Impregnable’ is completely unique and differs from basic ‘anti-siphons’ due to its float-valve which locks off when the tank is full, thereby preventing any fuel from being siphoned or spilt. Coupled with this, the device incorporates a patent-pending ‘Anti-Roll Mechanism’ that in the event of a Truck overturning significantly diminishes the amount of fuel that can seep out to.
Many of the UK’s largest Truck Fleets are fitting the TankSafe ‘Impregnable’ primarily due to the unique safety and environmental benefits. TISS’ customer list includes DHL, Tesco, Sainsburys and Maritime Transport. Additionally, the device is available from all MAN, Mercedes, Volvo and Iveco Truck Dealerships.
TISS’ Ryan Wholey added: ‘winning a prestigious Road Safety Award supports our assertion that the TankSafe ‘Impregnable’ is the only Truck Fuel Security product available that has wide ranging Health & Safety benefits. No other basic anti-siphon offers these unique benefits. I hope that with the recognition received from Brake for this award, many other Hauliers recognise the importance of the TankSafe ‘Impregnable in improving road safety amongst Truck fleets’.
Emily Moxon, Brake Spokesperson, said: ‘Brake were delighted to award TISS the Fleet Safety Product Award at the 9th Annual Fleet Safety Forum Awards for Excellence 2011. This award is designed to recognise and applaud companies who have developed products that reduce risks associated with at-work driving. Brake are proud to congratulate TISS on their outstanding product the TankSafe ‘Impregnable’ Fuel Security & Safety Device which has, through innovative design, raised the bar of fleet safety best practice’.
