The Chain Gang
With the best snow season in years
upon us, it’s time to ensure that a
set of snow chains are on board the
vehicle and more importantly that
they fit the vehicle. This is a legal
requirement when travelling to the
snow fields in NSW and Victoria.
Piranha Off Road Products have be
supplying mud and snow chains to snow travellers for many years and specialise in providing the very
popular square section, diamond pattern chains as well as 8mm V-bar ladder pattern mud chains.
While there are numerous chains on the market, Piranha specialise in the 4WD market, catering
for the huge range of tyres sizes now fitted to our modern 4WD vehicles. With the ability to
manufacture such a large range of chain sizes, Piranha caters for commercial vehicles and buses as
Snow chains have to comply with Vic Roads standards for Alpine use. Piranha’s diamond pattern
chains meet these standards and are manufactured from nickel-chromium-manganese high strength,
square section steel for maximum ice breaking and anti-slip properties in snow and icy conditions.
For maximum safety for the family while enjoying a day visit or holiday to the snow fields, snow
chains, while mandatory, are also the best way to stay safe on potentially dangerous roads.
Customers who buy a set of snow chains from Piranha will get hands-on instruction on how to fit
their chains correctly. This helps tremendously when it comes to fitting them on the road and often
under harsh, mountain weather conditions. Fitting gets easier with practice and correct fitting will
reduce any chance of damaging the vehicle.

“Until now, LDWS has been a very expensive technology to have in cars, costing thousands of
dollars and multiple hardware installation in the car,” Mr Seo said.
“The inclusion of this technology in the CR-2000G will hopefully lead to other manufacturers
including such advanced features as standard in premium driving recorders.”
CR-2000G will be released in Australia towards the end of 2014.
