HOW TO CORRECTLY INSTALL YOUR BRAKE PADS & SHOES

31 January 2024

BRAKE PADS

These are essential brake parts that have to endure a lot. Brake pads can stop a vehicle at any speed. This, of course, creates friction. 

Over time, these parts will need to be repaired or replaced. Rely on our vast offer of brake pads & pucks, brake shoe kits and brake linings to keep working safely.

  • A team of specialists to answer questions
  • An extensive range of high-quality brake pads to enhance safety
  • Very fast delivery times to minimize the downtime of your fleet

We offer:

- Brake linings: a vehicle stops because of the friction between the brake lining and drum. It goes without saying that the lining needs regular replacement. 

- Brake pads and brake pucks: vital brake elements that reduce metal-to-metal friction. Once worn, they definitely need to be replaced. Rely on our range to improve vehicle safety.

BRAKE SHOES

Brake shoes bring machines to a standstill by pushing outwards. They press against the rotor disc, stalling the wheels. 

Most of the time, they last longer than brake pads. Naturally, these parts require regular replacement. Our committed team is ready to help. The combination of a very wide range, our technical expertise and exceptionally quick delivery times, keeps your machines going.
