The Airworks Story


Designed and engineered by Canadian company Tiger Tool, Airworks manufactures 12-volt no-idle cab comfort solutions. Airworks’ systems comply with no-idle laws across North America to keep operators cool and comfortable while the engine is powered off.


The Next Generation

By focusing the design on performance, quality and safety, Airworks’ systems will not only serve as a recruitment tool for fleet owners, but will also make a significant impact on fuel and maintenance costs.  Well-rested operators are more alert, drive more safely and stay on schedule.

As virtually all rigs will be exposed to harsh conditions, 12-volt actuated AC units – if not properly designed and installed – are vulnerable to rust, leakage and even electrical fires. Airworks developed the Genesis to address these issues; 316 stainless steel is utilized for frame structures to eliminate rust and corrosion, and electrical components are IP67 and IP68 certified. In addition to other high quality materials and components, the Airworks’ Genesis system is completely weatherproof.

Airworks incorporated technical contributions from various disciplines of the engineering and design divisions of Tiger Tool to create two innovative and proprietary safety/operating features – SafeStop™ and AccuSpeed™.

SafeStop™ automatically disconnects all power from the system in the event of an electrical malfunction, reducing the risk of fire and personal injury, while the AccuSpeed™ controller automatically adjusts the system to maintain the target temperature while ensuring maximum efficiency. With an outside temperature of 85°F and an inside temperature setting of 70°F, the Genesis system – which generates up to 10,000 BTU’s of cooling power – can be expected to operate in excess of 19 hours* between charges, so operators can count on prolonged comfort – both on and off the road. The batteries are recharged by the alternator while driving.

Airworks strives to produce the highest performing, safest and most trouble free system on the market. In development, a substantial amount of resources were invested in research and development as well as engagement with fleet owners and end users to truly understand the issues facing today’s industry.
