Rotogrip is an automatic snow chain system that has been specifically designed for commercial and emergency vehicles. The automatic snow and ice chain is simply deployed with just a flip of a switch from the driver’s seat, while the vehicle is in motion.

The Rotogrip CS Compact Solution system has been specifically developed for vehicles with limited mounting space and ground clearance; such as buses that have pneumatic suspensions and low profile tyres.

The Rotogrip CS system possesses many systematic improvements to that of the existing Rotogrip system. The new integrated ‘patented’ flexible piston rod increases the swivel area, requires minimal maintenance, is easy to fit and reduces fitting time. 

The Rotogrip CS system is bespoke to each vehicle, making the installation process extremely quick and easy. The system is supplied with vehicle specific adapters and compact forged steel swivel housing with a patented drive mechanism.

It can be used across a wide range of vehicles with limited mounting space from road haulage, buses, public transport and emergency service vehicles. The chain comes with pre-tensioned springs that lay the chain strands under the tyre evenly; making driving on chains a much smoother process benefitting the system and the tyres.
