When people think of vehicle emissions, exhaust gases usually come to mind. But did you know that brake dust is the source of approximately 20% of total PM2.5 traffic pollution! These are particles small enough to be inhaled into the deepest regions of the lung. Advanced Braking Technology’s sealed brakes prevent harmful brake emissions escaping by collecting them within the brake housing. This allows the brake dust to be safely disposed of during servicing.

Source: MRC Centre for Environment and Health at King’s College London; PM2.5 means the particles are less than 2.5 micrometres in diameter.

ABT brakes perform better, experience less fade and have improved stopping power for longer. Not only does this improve safety significantly, it also greatly enhances reliability and performance meaning greater availability and utilisation of your vehicle fleet. ABT’s Spring Activated Hydraulic Release (SAHR) failsafe component can be combined with optional interlocks whereby the integrated Park and Emergency Brake system is automatically applied when the E-Stop button is pressed, the engine key is turned off, or a vehicle door is opened.

This system ensures the vehicle cannot roll away unexpectedly, providing an unprecedented level of safety for vehicle operators and site personnel.

advanced brakes systems have minimal wear issues due to their low operating temperatures and because they are fully sealed, have no foreign abrasive and corrosive materials impacting performance. In most instances, the reduced cost of maintenance easily offsets the cost of ABT’s brakes – and that is not considering the improved availability/reduced downtime and of course, the significant safety benefits!
