Experience is everything

Whilst our company is mostly associated with transportation, sophisticated rubber and fabric products provide solutions for a broad range of industrial and non-vehicular applications, from agriculture and packaging, to construction and mining. Our air springs help these industries and more, by increasing efficiency, reducing vibration and improving operations.


Firestone Airstroke actuators aid in sowing seeds at the correct depth. Since the air springs are enclosed, they will not succumb to harsh farming environments – from pervasive dirt and dust, to prolonged moisture. Air springs are commonly used within the following applications:

  • Dairy barn milking parlours
  • Planters
  • Adjustable belt tensioning
  • Seedling handling devices
  • Cultivators
  • Hay balers


Commercial Laundry

Our air springs help washing machines run efficiently by consolidating washing processes. A single air spring efficiently handles two functions: it acts as an actuator, tilting the machine to simplify the loading and unloading process; and as a vibration isolator, resulting in better water spinout. No other single product in the market can do both these jobs.

  • Vibration isolation
  • Commercial laundry tipping
  • Large capacity washer extractor
  • Drying tumbler
  • Cultivators

Construction & Mining

Construction and mining companies face mounting challenges around the world, with ever-changing regulatory and emissions requirements, lower-cost competitors and fluctuating global economies. In order to drive profitable growth, companies continue to seek reliable alternative solutions to reduce overall operating costs. Our Marsh Mellow springs are a superior alternative to pneumatic or hydraulics cylinders or coil springs. They can handle differences in load while delivering vibration isolation. Our air springs are widely used on the following:

  • Conveyor belt scraper
  • Vibrating screens
  • Concrete block manufacturing
  • Rock crusher
  • Vibration isolation
  • Vibrating rippers



Air springs work in the forest products industry in a number of ways, including handling and conveying logs, which can vary greatly by weight and size.

  • Debarkers
  • Log kickers
  • Band saws
  • Pulp and paper presses
  • Paper felt guides
  • Calendar roll loading

Material Handling

Firestone industrial products offer more than air springs for the transportation industry. They provide durable solutions for the packaging industry. Our products allow for simple process improvements to facilitate a reduction in maintenance costs and machine down time.
