Brake Master Cylinders
It is the heart of the braking system in today’s modern cars and trucks. It is responsible for pushing brake fluid through the brake lines allowing brake pads to make contact with brake discs, also allowing brake shoes to make contact with brake drums which results in stopping of the vehicle.

Clutch Master Cylinder & Clutch Slave Cylinder
By pressing the clutch pedal, brake fluid flows from the clutch master cylinder to the clutch slave cylinder, generating hydraulic pressure which than allows the clutch system to operate.

Calipers
Pistons within a caliper squeeze the brake pads against the brake disc allowing the vehicle to stop. Over time the seals between the caliper piston and housing wears out resulting in inefficient braking.

Wheel Cylinders
Wheel cylinders are components generally found in a drum brake system. Its primary function is to exert hydraulic pressure from the brake shoe onto the brake drum. Thus allowing the vehicle to slow down or stop.

Air Brake System

Air brakes are used in trucks, buses and trailers. The use of air brake system allows truck and trailer units to be coupled so that an efficient and uniform braking system is achieved. Air brake system uses air to transmit pressure from the drivers control to the three braking systems.

The three air braking systems are:
>>> The service brake
>>> The parking brake
>>> The emergency brake

We supply or repair the following:
>>> Air brake compressors
>>> Truck & trailer calipers
