Heavy Metal

Tyre solutions for heavy metal industries


The heavy weights and the high demands of metal industries mean that a reliable, high load capacity industrial tyre is needed. Continental industrial tyres for forklifts and other vehicles provide stable operations in a molten world.

Due to the wide range of heavy metal manufacturing in Europe there is a very wide range of lift trucks used. There is no “one” application in this segment: metal production, scrap and recycling, or mining and ore are quite different. That is the reason there are numerous tyre sizes, compounds, tread designs and tyre constructions used.

Manufacturing locations where the forklifts are used only indoors generally use SC20 solid tyres. Manufacturing locations where the forklifts are used both indoors and outdoors use a blend of solid and pneumatic tyres. Well suited for the different applications Continental industrial tyres' engineering features allow for reduced operating costs, through technologies such as lowered rolling resistance, ease of maintenance, durable tread compounds and tyre constructions and much more.

SC20 Mileage+

The Continental SC20 Mileage+  offers low rolling resistance, low heat build up and a soft ride which protects the driver, load and forklift. It’s especially used for Carriers (Slag, Scrap, Slab, and Ladle) and Trailers.


With its non-directional modern flat tread profile, which provides a wider ground contact area due to the optimized tread bar and tread groove design this tyre is especially suited to Grader, Forklifts and High Stackers.


This tread pattern has a non-directional flat tread profile with dense tread rubber in the centre bar region, which provides resistance to foreign object damage and excellent wear on abrasive surfaces. Because of these benefits the SE132 is especially suited for Articulated Dump Trucks and Dump Trucks, Forklifts, High Stackers and Carriers (Slag, Scrap, Slab, and Ladle).


The crossply construction of this tyre offers high cut resistance, excellent stability and protection against damage. The extra deep tread in a flatter tread profile offers efficient weight distribution for maximum tread life. It’s the perfect tyre for Loaders used in heavy metal industries.


This tread pattern has a modern deep tread profile, offering longer lifetime and excellent resistance to foreign object damage. It’s especially suitable for Articulated Dump Trucks, Dump Trucks as well as Forklifts and High Stackers.


The extra deep tread with a very flat profile and opposing cross grooves offer efficient load distribution and excellent traction. The tread rubber is compounded for maximum resistance to cut and abrasion. Its especially suited for Articulated Dump Trucks and also Loaders.

Container Master

This tread pattern has been specially developed for Forklifts and High Stackers, having a wide flat profile and dense tread rubber at centre bar region which offers excellent durability and longer lifetime in severe abrasive conditions.
