SIBS brakes significantly enhance vehicle safety, reduce vehicle operating costs and improve brake reliability.
- Minimal maintenance required..
- Full enclosed, wet brake with spring-applied hydraulic release system.
- Brakes can be programmed automatically to apply, when the door is opened, seat belt removed, or the engine stopped.
- Brakes are activated manually by hitting the Emergency Button..
SIBS Brakes Benefits
The extremely low wear rate of the SIBS brakes means the emergency brake performs properly EVERY time. The ‘spring applied hydraulic release’ ensures that the emergency brake is always FULLY applied, eliminating the potential for partial application of the emergency brake, a significant risk for ‘uncontrolled vehicle movements’. The emergency brake is electronically interlocked to ensure the emergency brake is applied every time the engine is turned off or a door is opened.
As the brake caliper, rotor and brake pads are fully sealed in an oil-filled housing, SIBS brakes component temperatures are reduced and completely PROTECTED from contamination. This results in an extremely reliable emergency brake as there is no deterioration of the critical brake system components. And as the emergency brake is applied fully every time through the ‘spring applied hydraulic release’, vehicles are RELIABLY restrained every time, eliminating the need for vehicle chocking.
Minimal maintenance is required as all key brake system components are now enclosed and protected in an oil-filled housing.
As SIBS brakes are fully SEALED, airborne particle emissions are eliminated, delivering occupational health and safety benefits to personnel and broad environmental benefits.
