Bogie & Braking Systems

Our patented track braking system is available for all new vehicles, and can be retro fitted to existing systems.

Additionally we recommend our Pinch Braking system for use on steep gradients or where further braking is required to stop unbraked rolling stock.

Where gradients are particularly steep, or where large unbraked loads are currently in operation, we have developed a high capacity system offering the added security of Calliper Braking.

Both Pinch and Calliper braking are applied directly onto the track/rail, this negates the risk of inducing uncontrolled skidding, unlike conventional wheel applied brakes.
